Narrow Gauge East, Bressingham. 1st June 2019

22 narrow gauge layouts were assembled at Bressingham Steam Museum on June 1st, a very good selection in various scales.  It was supported by four or five trade stands including the 7mm NGA Sales Stand, plus all the usual attractions at Bressingham.

Here is a slection of photos (in various lighting conditions!).  I was unable to get details of stock as I was assisting at the show, but hopefully it gives a flavour of the event.

Two views also of the Lincolnshire 7mm Society's modular layout.  Almost any module can join up to any other.  An American scene freatures at one end of the layout, while down the other end a British scene was displayed with through trains to the fiddle yard.
