3mm Society, Railway, Terriers A1 & A1x, Wimblehurst Road

Pevensey Show

Well survived the show. Unfortunately the layout suffered from the heat and the track shifted causing the board joints to move. I also had to Jerry rig the wiring as had no power.

On the positive side a few notes to self for the future

  • Make a note of your wiring
  • Develop a non electrical solution for point control
  • Improve layout wiring
  • Do not use recycled wiring
  • Test your stock
  • Unify couplings
  • Despite the heat it was an enjoyable exhibition and I would like to thank Mr P and Mike for their company and help on the day – onwards & forwards.

    Hayward’s Heath MRE

    Myself and Mr P paid a visit to the Hayward’s Heath Show held at the Dolphin Leisure Centre. Apart from the parking which was horrendous (found that Mr P is very good at reversing his car down a long road!) the show held in 2 halls was pretty good.

    A variety of scales (alas no 3mm) some decent layouts were on show. We also met a few Society members both 3mm and O.16.5 so had a good chinwag too.

    Unlike a lot of exhibitions these days a decent guide was provided too.

    Here are the photos
