The Dorset Model Railway Exhibition

On Saturday, 19th March, we went to the Dorset Model Railway Exhibition at the Queen Elizabeth School in Wimborne and had a lovely informative chat to the guys from the The Junction 72A Model Railway Club there with The Junction layout in N Gauge (above). Here are a few more scenes from the exhibition that caught my eye.

The Cornish Engine House

The Cornish Engine House
Around 3,000 Engine Houses were built to house beam engines in Cornwall and west Devon, so it would seem like an important omission if Porthkeres were not to have one. This is mostly scratch built by my husband, finishing with materials found in ScaleScenes Scratchbuilder's yard and canibalising a chimney from a Kestrel Designs' Boilerhouse kit.

Country Pub

The George Inn

Our second building is ScaleScenes' Country Pub, which we envisage by the village green.

Half Timbered House

Constructed from the Bilteezi D4 Half Timbered House card kit, this was built first so we could get accurate measurements. It's still to be decided if and where it will be situated.
