Thornbury Model Railway Club Show 18-11-2023.

Thornbury & South Gloucestershire Model Railway Club 2023 Exhibition took place over the weekend of 18th & 19th November 2023. This year the exhibition was held at Turnberrie's Community Centre, Thornbury, Bristol. Wings Team Rich and Dave plus many other members visited the show over the weekend. And as you can see from our photo gallery what a show it was, with lots of innovative layouts and modelling. The show consisted of sales stands, Heritage Railway stands and approximately twenty Small to very Large Layouts ranging from N Gauge all the way through to 7mm (0 Gauge), and 3mm too. One layout as last year showed amazing total Innovation, as it was constructed in the back of half a car modified to work as a moveable trailer! Yes, that's correct folks, it was built by Lisa Hill, David, and George Fish. This took 5 months to complete from cutting up an old car, after chatting to them they have plans to DCC the layout and introduce Solar panels on the roof, along with other modifications to come. The Train Trailer layout can run off a car battery and/or mains at present. Also present was a recently built layout from the Midlands, a live 7mm (0 Gauge) diorama named Lapping Works, this was very highly detailed as you can in our images.
