Our 22nd Exhibition

was held on
Saturday & Sunday 21st/22nd October 2006

at the
Uckfield Civic Centre
Civic Approach, Uckfield
East Sussex



The exhibition was a great success with thirteen layouts attending. There were nine different scale/gauge combinations on show including those in S7, 0-16.5, P4, EM, 00, 00-9, H0 and N. Layouts traveled from as far away as Berkshire, Kent, North Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and Surrey, portraying British, American and European standard, narrow and broad gauge prototypes.

Twelve 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, this year with guest demonstrators Barry Norman and Laurie Griffin.


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.
