Our 4th annual Open Day Exhibition took place on September 1st after being re-arranged due to heavy snow in March. Inevitably there were a few alterations to the original March line-up, but one or two good replacements had been booked for the new date.
Again we had a good attendance from visitors, 298 in all, and some visitors came from far and wide. A variety of scales and gauges were exhibited, with trade support from Narrow Planet, A1 Models, N-Drive Productions, Norfolk Heath Works and the 009 Society sales stand. Society Stands from the Bure Valley Railway, Southwold Railway Trust and the Halesworth to Southwold NG Railway Society. Sarah, Linsay and Penny from Graet Yarmouth Brass were helped by Ann in supplying great teas, rolls and cakes again. Our Group “Challenge” was won by Bill Knight for a scratch built 1:16 scale Mobile Donkey Engine in his own well-modelled and meticulous style, and David Gander kindly presented the cup to him. Our Group members would like to thank Richard & Sarah for their relentless work in organising and advertising our humble event that made it the success it turned out to be.
