The Great Electric Train Show – 7th/8th October 2017 – British Motor Museum, Gaydon

Over the weekend of 7th/8th October Hornby Magazine held their annual model railway show. Once again it was at the impressive British Motor Museum, near Gaydon.

Natalie and myself were invited to help out over the weekend with two DEMU layouts, Rannoch Moor and Bere Banks. Unfortuately as it turned out we weren’t really needed in fact so spent more of the show talking to various people. However I was offered the chance to help operate the impressive Mostyn layout by the Barrowmore Model Railway Group, more on that later though.

There were a number of impressive layouts on display over the course of the weekend. These included the afore mentioned Bere Banks, Rannoch Moor and Mostyn. The show was pretty busy throughout the weekend as well.

A aspect of the show that is perhaps unique, is that entry to the show gives you access to the Motor Musuem below (and I believe the recently opened new buildings but I didn’t venture there). Well worth a visit if you get the chance.

I look forward to next year’s show and the upcoming Warley show at the NEC.
