Fisherton Sarum at Doncaster Festival of British Railway Modelling this weekend 11/12th February

Fisherton Sarum is currently only making two appearances on the exhibition circuit this year and the first of which is this coming weekend 11th and 12th February at the British Railway Modelling magazine Festival of British Railway Modelling at Doncaster Racecourse.

With over 30 layouts ranging from N to O gauges, many of which ( including Fisherton Sarum, see February 2012 issue), have graced the pages of British Railway Modelling Magazine and over 80 trade stands  there should be something for everyone.
It is also good to see that Fisherton Sarum will not be alone in flying the flag for Southern Railway / Region based layouts, these include Thornbury Hill, Brighton main line including third rail electrics in South London based C1962; Stodmarsh, East Kent Railway basedduring World War II; Soberton, the Meon Valley line in the 1950s and Lynton and Barnstaple Railway based Bratton Flemming in the snow!

A sneak preview and video of the some of the layouts attending include Fisherton Sarum can be seen on the shows website here, whilst an electronic version of the show guide can be viewed here

I shall be ably assisted by my Mum and Dad (who actually appears in model from in his short trouser days on the layout), and Roger, Mark and Daniel from the High Wycombe District Model Railway Society to whom I am very grateful and would not be able to exhibit Fisherton Sarum otherwise.

    1. grahammuz – A railway modeller with a keen insterest in all things Southern Railway especially the 1946 to 1949 period. I can often be seen on the exhibition circuit with my Layout Fisherton Sarum or assiting MIke Wild the Editor of Hornby Magazine with his layouts at shows. I am also long time member of the High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society

      Yes I noticed you got the front cover of the guide, if you had modelled a proper railway in the first place I would have mentioned it in my post too! Young Richard (Metro) is also attending with his Romney Midland layout, we were debating at the weekend if we should wear our Hornby Mag polo shirts or not…

      1. Some of us don’t own a Hornby Mag polo shirt. If they want advertising, I expect a free one. With my name emboidered on it. In gold threads. And red shading on the letters.

        Of course if any other magazines are reading this, for a fee, I’ll wear your polo shirt instead. I understand professional footballers get paid millions to do this sort of thing !
