Abingdon and District Model Railway Show 2009

A lot of community events in Abingdon today. There was the two swap shops, the Alzheimers Jumble Sale at the Baptist church, and the Foyer and the Fairtrade stall on the Market Place. If people can send pictures I'll include them soon.

But the biggest event of the day was probably the Railway Show, at the Vale of White Hourse Leisure Centre.

Enthusiasts came from far and wide to lean over and watch.

There were two models of Abingdon Station on view. This one by Brant Hickman appeared in the 1996 edition of the Railway Modeller, and was last seen in Abingdon in 1997. More of this layout can be seen on Brant's website.

Brant was asked back because a second Abingdon layout is under construction. This is to a larger scale (00 rather than N), and involves consequently more work. Details of its progress can be see at Abingdonbranch.co.uk.
