The 2015 exhibition was another great success with fifteen layouts attending. There were thirteen diverse scale/gauge combinations on show including those in 0, 0-16.5, 0-9, On30, P4, EM, 00, 00-9, P87, H0, 3mm/ft finescale, British N and 2mm/ft finescale. Once again something for everyone! Layouts traveled from as far away as Bristol, Cambridgeshire, East and West Sussex, Essex, Gwent, Kent, London, Nottinghamshire, Surrey and Wiltshire portraying British, American, French and Danish standard 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 Simply Southern who attended with their range of 4mm/ft scale rolling stock. 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). We also had a display from the promoters of the Ashford International Model Railway Education Centre (AIMREC).


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 18.83mm gauge (P4) layout "Rolvenden" constructed by Robin Gay picked up the most votes and he was presented with a special plaque for mounting on the layout.
