We attended the above exhibition yesterday with my small OO layout, Lowe St. There is a previous post on this layout so I will not go over old ground again. Just search ‘Lowe Street’.
I would like to thank all at the Cambridge 31A Model Railway Club for inviting me, they are a great club and put on excellent shows. After over 20 shows Neil has handed over to Alan, and if yesterday was anything to go on, the change is seamless.
The quality of layouts and traders was to the usual high standard and it seemed very busy almost to the finishing time. I purchased some excellent laser cut O gauge platforms and a Goods Shed at really good prices.
The best part of the day for us was receiving the ‘Best Layout in Show’ award. This was quite a surprise as we had one of the smallest layout in the show, although run close by Dave Tailby, Colin French and Dave Carson with their micro layouts. This goes to show that everyone has room for a layout and that micro’s can be both interesting with plenty of shunting and very detailed. Once again thank you to the Cambridge Club.
Sorry I look at bit sad, but it was such a surprise being awarded the trophy. Delighted really.
