After a break of several years I was invited to attend this exhibition with my O Gauge layout Sefton Yard. This was my first visit to the new venue at Hellesdon High School, and what a great venue it is.
Not only was this a very friendly show, but all the layouts present were truly excellent. I have to single one out though, this is ‘Worlds End’, a classic. Its scenic modelling puts it in my best ever top 10 layouts. This also shows just how diverse railway modelling really is, from the urban setting of ‘Worlds End’ to the vast space of ‘That Dam Railway’ to merely the shunting puzzle of our ‘Sefton Yard’ and the depot movements on ‘Bedford Road’.
We were in Hall 2 along with two other O gauge layouts Bedford Road and Blackshaw Yard/Coopers End. It was nice that we were all in the same Hall, but also that the three O gauge layouts were all different era’s.
I would like to thank my helpers of the day, Shaun, Graham and Graham. I would also like to thank my wife for the following photographs. Lastly thanks to Terry and all members of the Norwich Club – great Show, see you next year with Morlock Heath.
