was held on
Saturday & Sunday
18th/19th October 2014


at the
Uckfield Civic Centre
Civic Approach, Uckfield
East Sussex



The 2014 exhibition was another great success with fourteen layouts attending. There were twelve diverse scale/gauge combinations on show including those in Gn15, 0, 0-16.5, P4, EM, 00, 00-9, H0, British N, 2mm/ft finescale and American N. Once again something for everyone! Layouts traveled from as far away as Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Cornwall, East Sussex, Kent, Surrey, West Sussex and Wiltshire portraying British, American, German & Irish standard, broad 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. This year we welcomed for the first time Bruce Smetham who attended with his railway book retailing business Geoff Gamble Books. There was a display by the model engineers from the Bentley Miniature Railway as well as the popular demonstration stand manned this year by Club members and guests Roger Sawyer (soldering) and Cat Gibbs (figure painting).


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 4mm/ft scale 16.5mm gauge (00) layout "Herstmonceux" constructed by Andy Jones picked up the most votes and he was presented with a special plaque for mounting on the layout.
