The exhibition was a great success with fifteen layouts attending. There were thirteen different scale/gauge combinations on show including those in 0, 0-16.5, S, P4, EM, 00, 00-9, H0, N and Z. Layouts traveled from as far away as Bedfordshire, Devon, Dorset, Essex, Hampshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Suffolk and Wiltshire, portraying British, American and European standard, narrow and broad gauge prototypes.

Thirteen 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.
