East Sussex



The 2008 exhibition was another great success with fifteen layouts attending. There were twelve different scale/gauge combinations on show including those in 0, 0-16.5, 1:50 scale, S, P4, EM, 00, 00-9, H0, 3mm/ft scale, British N and Z. Something for everyone! Layouts traveled from as far away as the Netherlands, Devon, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Somerset, Suffolk, Surrey and Warwickshire, portraying British, American and European standard and narrow gauge.

Twelve members of the trade, including specialist manufacturers, had a presence at the show. We had one new trader at the show, Realistic Modelling Services, who supplied all those scenic materials that you need. There was a display by the model engineers from the Bentley Miniature Railway as well as the popular demonstration stand, this year with guest demonstrator Iain Rice.


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.

Throughout the weekend the visiting public was asked what layout they thought was the "Best in Show". The 1:50 scale layout "Pempoul - Réseau Breton" constructed by Gordon & Maggie Gravett picked up the most votes and they were presented with a special plaque for mounting on the layout.
