HFS 150 Logo

The 31st October 2018 sees the 150th Anniversary of the birth of Colonel Holman F. Stephens, who in the early decades of the last century engineered, built and managed a unique empire of branch line railways up and down the country. As part of these HFS150 celebrations, this year's Uckfield Model Railway Exhibition will feature several layouts either portraying a Colonel Stephens railway or inspired by one. The Colonel Stephens Society will also be present with a small society information stand.
