Wimbourne Model Railway Exhibition 2015

In April it was the turn of the Wimborne Railway Society's biennial Wimbourne Model Railway Exhibition at Queen Elizabeth's School, from which the above is from Terry Harrington's layout Woodley Moor, a fictional ex Midland Region mainline station set in Yorkshire. We particularly like this scene with the cattle being driven (clearly, back out to the field after milking) as this creates the feeling that more is going on than if they were just standing in a field.

The other takeaway from this show was seeing what can be done (see below) with some Celotex insulation board and Woodland Scenics Realistic Water™, as with cliffs, sea, river and a waterfall planned for our layout, this will undoubtedly prove to be invaluable knowledge.
