Tolworth Showtrain 2018

The Hampton Court Model Railway Society had another successful show over the weekend of 10 and 11 November. Visitors to the show are asked to vote for their favourite layout which is awarded the Showtrain Cup.
The Show has long been associated with Remembrance Weekend, and this year with the Sunday also being the Centenary of the 1918 Armistice that brought the Great War to an end, various parts of the Show were designed to commemorate this and to reflect the part played by railways and railway personnel in conflicts, including two layouts showing the tasks undertaken by railways on the Western Front. One of these layouts was Trenches, exhibited by the Helensburgh and District Model Railway Club.
This layout was chosen by the public as their favourite and was awarded the the Showtrain Cup. In the words of the Exhibition Manager, John Noorani, given the weekend, and what he had wanted to achieve with the Show, this was an excellent choice,
The picture shows the cup being presented to the Helensburgh and District Model Railway Club team by the Exhibition Manager, John Noorani.

Oxford & District MRC Exhibition Feedback

On Sunday 14th October the Oxford & District MRC held their annual exhibition.
The day started with pouring rain which had a positive impact on the record numbers in attendance. All of our plans really paid off with feed back comments complimenting the location, parking, professionalism and friendlyness. Having a 150 foot of continuous track called Snakebend specifically for children was a great success.
We have already started on the plans for 2019 with the exhibition taking place on Sunday 13th October, same location. We are focusing more attention on providing a greater number of child friendly layouts, more especially for children with learning difficulties, something I'm sure you would continue to be associated with. We will maintain the high standard of layouts for the modellers wishing to view or purchase but also wish to make the event open to all the family.

The organisers would like your feedback, be it positive or negative, about the show this year. John commented "It is very important to Tony and I that we should understand what's liked and not so liked from everyone involved in our event".

The contact details for the Club can be found on their website by selecting the above banner.
