Runner up at the East Anglia Model Railway Exhibition in Huntingdon!

Last weekend was the St. Neots Model Railway Club's exhibition in Huntingdon/Godmanchester and I took along my guitar case. The layout gathered lots of attention from all ages, particularly because of my 'Eyesight Test' for the layout where people had to find 10 people etc. on the layout. Lots of people from 5 year olds to battle hardened railway exhibitors had a go at it, most managing to find all the tiny details.

I was very surprised when after the Mayor of Huntingdon had awarded the Best in Show award to the amazing 2mm finescale layout "Fence Houses", he came over to my layout with his entourage and said that if he could have given out an award for second place I would have got it. I was and still am flabbergasted. Thank you Mr. Mayor!

T gauge Tardis/police box

I've added 2 police boxes to my layout, 1 obvious and one hidden in trees. The police box is available from NeilMachin's shop on shapeways.com here.
