at the
Uckfield Civic Centre
Civic Approach, Uckfield
East Sussex



The 2010 exhibition was another great success with fourteen layouts attending. There were twelve diverse scale/gauge combinations on show including those in 0, 0-16.5, S, Sn3, On30, P4, EM, 00, 00-9, 3mm/ft finescale, British N and 2mm/ft finescale. Once again something for everyone! Layouts traveled from as far away as Bristol, Devon, Kent, Kingston-upon-Hull, Greater Manchester, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Surrey, West Sussex and Wiltshire portraying British and American standard and narrow gauge prototypes.


The Weald Hall on the Saturday morning


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, this year with guest demonstrator Tony Hill who showed our visitors the art of scenic modelling.


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 7mm/ft scale 32mm gauge (0) layout "Hospital Gates" constructed by the East Riding Finescale Modellers picked up the most votes and they were presented with a special plaque for mounting on the layout.
