The Joy of Small Shows

That’s the title of an article in the latest issue (September) of British Railway Modelling Magazine. The main article, by Phil Parker argues that small shows are worth a visit.

I couldn’t agree more; to me they are at the heart of the hobby. As against large shows, there is time to chat to operators, ask questions and have a nice cup of tea or coffee with some home made cake, whilst you watch the trains go by! Possibly some bargains on the club second-hand stall as well.

I would recommend the Liphook & District Club’s Open Day event- Model Trains in the Valley on Sunday 29th October 2017 at the Milland Valley Memorial Hall GU30 7NA- close to The Rising Sun PH and Milland Stores at Milland Cross Roads, (3 miles from Liphook Hampshire; 7 miles from Petersfield Hampshire and from Midhurst West Sussex, ┬áin the South Downs National Park.

Now in its 8th year this will be the first I will not be involved in, but I may be exhibiting!

The Open Day is aimed at enjoyment of our hobby- so do come along and support their efforts
