Epsom and Ewell model railway exhibition

Epsom and Ewell model railway exhibition
 OK it's a bit late in the day. Over a week ago I wandered up to Epsom using a rather tortuous route to avoid the M23/5. The E and E is one of those dates in the year which is worth your attention. Always good quality and an excellent supply of trade. Two things caught my eye: Modbury, not only the 2mm F/S aspect, but the fact that is the rarely done GWR pre-1920s period which removes the cliché immediately. Quite beautiful in execution.

At the other end of the scale was Stackton Binge, a club offering which used to be a GWR branch in O, but now re-jigged to fit Ian Hopkins' early LSWR stock from St Georges Hill. Poorly operated and better with some sort of backscene, but it just had something about it.

Lunch got very confused. If two people ask for sausage and chips, don't dish one up and then say that it's the last available. Needs improvement.
Show: 10/10, catering: 6/10
