ESNG Exhibition 2016 #4

Today we’ll have a look at the rest of the modular layouts.

Not quite modular, but more (large) table top was Paul Rowlatt’s Kato Racetrack.  Up to eight bullet trains could be in motion at any one time.  This is a wonderful advert for model railways being fun.  No scenery, no rivet counting (I’m sure the Kato trains had them but they move too fast) but lots of pure entertainment for even the most fastidious modeller.  And it all worked perfectly!

We repeated last year’s exhibition in having three N-mod circuits up and running.  They do seem to be appreciated by the public, and frankly, they are easy for the exhibition manager.  “Here’s a space – please fill it with something.”

So here are some pictures of the Berkshire NGS Group layout….

There’s a possibly well founded rumour that the new larger West Sussex show in 2017 will get all three modular groups together to form a large layout – a sort of mini-Stuttgart.

Last post next time will have a few pictures of the other layouts on show.
