Category: OO gauge
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.
Ian Dorrel’s display
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.
At the opposite end of the scale was this suitcase N gauge layout.
Even smaller, N gauge in a video box.
Next a couple of O gauge scratch built diesel’s, first the class 33
And the class 08 with cab detailing.
This HO layout drew my attention for some time.
Finally this is an outside garden railway display known as G scale
There were dozens more but these were some of best, in my opinion.
Will be back here tomorrow for the Lone Star diecast exhibition.
Spent a morning at the Basildon model railway exhibition, here are a few pictures from the vast array of layouts on display.

Spent this afternoon at the village hall in Cold Norton in Essex to see some of the local model railway clubs displaying their trains.
Above, a smart modern O gauge ACE tinplate tank loco.
The loco yard.
A mixture of Hornby and Trix O gauge trains above.
A layout of French Hornby O gauge trains.
Below is one of the only OO gauge layouts there today, run on DCC and with Bachmann rolling stock, some great detailing
Same layout as above further along.
