Lone Star and Dinky Exhibition, WhiteWebbs museum 2015

This year I wasn’t exhibiting at White Webbs museum as had a very busy year and too many things going on to think about a display, but even so found the time to visit this year.

Lots of  Lone Star for sale


Lone Star gun and rifle display below.

More display tables


There was a large Lone Star treblo (OOO = British N gauge) railway displays this year many more operational layout too.

Also as the show has now expanded to cover Dinky, some displays are older Hornby OO layouts notably Hornby Dublo 3 rail and two rail.



Also a few of the Dinky sales and display tables.




One very rare Dinky seen here is this Aviation refueller

Today I have taken myself to the Whitewebbs museum for a model railway exhibition, not been here before on the Saturday so was surprised how many people were there.

The first picture shows a larger scale narrow gauge mining layout and one of my favourites of the day.

Whitewebbs MR expo 1

At the opposite end of the scale was this suitcase N gauge layout.

Whitewebbs MR expo 2

Even smaller, N gauge in a video box.

Whitewebbs MR expo 3

Next a couple of O gauge scratch built diesel’s, first the class 33

Whitewebbs MR expo 4

And the class 08 with cab detailing.

Whitewebbs MR expo 5

This HO layout drew my attention for some time.

Whitewebbs MR expo 7

Whitewebbs MR expo 6

Whitewebbs MR expo 8

Finally this is an outside garden railway display known as G scale

Whitewebbs MR expo 10

There were dozens more but these were some of best, in my opinion.

Will be back here tomorrow for the Lone Star diecast exhibition.
