The exhibition was a great success with seventeen layouts attending. There were twelve different scale/gauge combinations on show including those in 0, 0-16.5, S, P4, EM, 00, 00-9, H0, H0m, TT and N. Layouts traveled from as far away as Bristol, Dorset, Essex, Leicestershire, Oxfordshire, Surrey and the West Midlands, portraying British, American and European standard and narrow gauge prototypes.


The Weald Hall on the Saturday morning


Fourteen members of the trade, including specialist manufacturers, had a presence at the show. There was a display by the model engineers from the Bentley Miniature Railway as well as the popular demonstration stand.


The show was very successful, with many comments being received as to the high quality of the exhibits, the variety of trade goods on offer and the general friendliness of those taking part.
