Yesterday was the 7mm Narrow Gauge Association’s annual exhibition in Burton on Trent.
This is one of my favourite exhibitions. A good mix of layouts, specialist traders and plenty of interesting people to talk with. The food’s great and there’s even a bar.
I know, doesn’t that sound like model railway heaven 🙂
I managed to get photos of most of the layouts.

There’s always lots of super stuff to see. I particularly liked these two competition entries …. and my lunch.
I had several very interesting conversations, got some kits from 422 Modelmaking, and brought these two books.
Andrew Neale told me a lot about the surprising history of the Strauss book. I’m very pleased with these and I can’t wait to read them !
Many, many thanks to the organisers, stewards and everyone who helped create such a great exhibition.
