The demos have now been confirmed with Scenic modelling master Barry Norman, loco construction by Mick Moore who also has wriiten articles in Model Railway Journal and Paul Bambrick who will be showing how to paint backscenes, Paul will also bring one board of his Whitchuch Road layout along, this is a photo I took yesterday, I think you will agree Paul is a talented artist, just look at those clouds.

If those clouds are painted David, then he is a fantastic artist.

Looking forward to this exhibition.

Cheers

Thanks for those pictures of some great layouts Paul.

Incidentally, members might like to know - if they don't already - that the wonderful Ashburton layout (by John Birkett-Smith) is in "N" gauge!!!   I have to say it's the best modelling I've ever seen and he also has another larger one of Totnes - featured in the recent issue 205 of Model Railway Journal - which I hope I'll be able to see at a local show some time in the future.

Ken.

Ken, I agree about Ashburton, it's a beautiful layout. Totnes too is amazing, incredibly detailed for a layout so large. I took a few photos and some video of it at St Albans in February which I've posted below.

Thanks again Paul ----- it's all so good it's almost unbelievable!   And what a nice modest and helpful chap he is; I met him when he exhibited Ashburton at Shaftesbury about 8 years ago.

Ken.

I have always strived to ensure, all layouts at Railex are top notch, with no fillers, There have how been seven Railex that I have been exhibition manager, and from the first one I tried to create a show that I would liked to have gone to if I was a general visitor.

Anyway our visitor numbers were around the same as our record breaking year in 2010, We had a lack of tables and chairs in the cafe area this year, the stadium said they had enough, although next year we will hire in more, also the gangways were a bit tight in places, my fault when setting out the floor plan.

Anyway planning is underway for Railex 2012

 

David
