Warley - National Model Railway Exhibition 2012

Well, it's not time for our normal monthly newsletter yet, but here's an interim snippet.

The above exhibition at the NEC is the largest in the UK, and this year, to celebrate its 20th anniversary it was larger than ever. One of the highlights for many people was an area of the Hall devoted to the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway - long gone but never forgotten. There were several layouts in a variety of scales together with the new build replica L & B 2-6-2 locomotive "Lyd". Although the club was not exhibiting this year, we certainly didn't forget our obligations to the modelling community, with some of the members of our Narrow Gauge Group helping with the operation of a brace of L & B 009 layouts belonging to Tony Peart, a local modeller of longstanding and L & B supporter.
