Re: SHMRC Portsmouth Model Railway Exhibition - 16th November 2019

A quick note to let you know about changes to our traders , and some parking information . Unfortunately, London Road Models, Masterpiece Falcon Figures, and Frome Model Centre have had to pull out at the last minute for unavoidable personal reasons - we look forward to seeing them back in 2020. We'...

Re: Portsmouth Model Railway Exhibition - Sat 17th November 2018

Thanks to all who came and made the Exhibition such a great day. According to our Chaiman (another Dave ... Dave Hawkins) traders and exhibitors were all pleased with the day. We had very nearly 800 paying visitors, our second highest attendance. There are always things we can improve on - these wil...

Re: Portsmouth Model Railway Exhibition - Sat 17th November 2018

Just three days to go, and we're nearly ready ... the Show Guide (one free to each party coming through the door) has gone to print, barriers and signs have been prepared, and the staffing schedule circulated. Traders update: We are being supported by four traders this year who all carry a wide rang...

Re: Portsmouth Model Railway Exhibition - Sat 17th November 2018

We're into the last two weeks before the exhibition ... and the Committee is getting the usual pre-match nerves - they think they've thought of everything! This is a good time to remind visitors that the excellent catering put on by 'Trig' in the school's kitchen, is only available between 12 noon a...

Re: Portsmouth Model Railway Exhibition - Sat 17th November 2018

This year's Exhibition will probably be known in the Club as "The Year of the Knees". The Committee has, between them, only 50% of the fit and funtioning knees they should have. I think it might be a ploy to avoid the heavy lifting! Don't forget - if you're coming to the Exhibition on the 17th, and ...

A short introduction

I'll have to keep this short, otherwise I won't get any (proper) work done this afternoon. I've been back and active in the hobby for just four years. I'm a member of the South Hants MRC, and several line and gauge societies. After too long working on the new (to us) house and getting the loft ready...

Re: Portsmouth Model Railway Exhibition - Sat 17th November 2018

We were busy in the Club room last night building some more supports for our barriers - we'd run out last year. Had a chat with the compiler of the Show Guide ... he has most of the information he needs, and will be creating the frist draft in the next few days. Traders preview Today, I'll mention a...

Re: Portsmouth Model Railway Exhibition - Sat 17th November 2018

Good morning Caiptean The parking directly in front of the school is quite limited, and there are always school sports activities as well as our Exhibition. We will have a few bays marked out for Blue Card holders, but we rely on non-card holders not to use them. There is also parking on the tarmace...

We're begining the count down in the Club, with lots of activity ... building extra barrier supports, mapping out the hall, and starting to give you a preview of the layouts, traders, societies and demonstrators. Traders preview Two of our regular traders are Book Law and Coastal DCC. Book Law keep ...
