crawley model railway society exhibitionLooking for inspiration? Here’s a few photos of the amazing layouts at Crawley Model Railway Society’s 2016 exhibition held last weekend.



I counted approximately 19 layouts on display over 3 halls with my favourites shown below, including the N gauge Umbridge, the OO 4mm Salmon Pastures, the 7mm Arigna Town and the monster G gauge Broke Brock Mountain.

Sadly, I didn’t get to catch up with Paul Denyer aka @gnome_garden who I’d tentatively agreed to meet up with and managed to miss Simply Southern who were also there (and from whom I wanted to pickup a couple of wagons from) but other than that it was a great day out with some impressive layouts on display.

Did you go? What was your favourite layout?

    Umbridge was my favourite layout as there was always a train on the move this was possible becausey they really thought about the track layout. Each operator had their own fiddle yard along with two main lines. I am not normally a N gauge fan but seeing layouts like that could convert me.
