This small but very friendly model railway exhibition was small but very enjoyable. It gave a real opportunity to get close to the layouts and have a chat with some of the exhibitors. It coincided with the Alresford Watercress Festival which made the visit or the more worthwhile. A vintage bus service was put on between the Watercress Line’s Medstead and Four Marks station, so a visit to the exhibition could be easily combined with a visit to the line.
As with previous exhibition articles, I take absolutely no credit for anything in this entry! Also as before, I would like to apologise in advance for my snaps not doing enough justice to exhibitors layouts and also for missing a few. This has nothing to do with the quality of the layouts, all of which were excellent.
