Alton Model Railway Group would like to say a big thank you to all of you who managed to visit the exhibition over the weekend, despite the weather conditions. We would also like to thank the Eggar’s School staff, the ADORR Vintage Bus team, and all the layout operators, traders, demonstrators, and societies who made the exhibition possible.
When the snow began falling on Friday afternoon, we had serious concerns as to what level of exhibition we would be able to hold, and even whether we would be able to hold it at all. But thanks to the perseverance of layouts owners, traders, demonstrators and societies, we very nearly held the exhibition we intended, with only 3 traders and 2 layouts unable to make it.
We hope to make an announcement about next years exhibition in the coming weeks, with the layouts that dropped out or were unable to attend at the top of our invite list for 2020.
Here’s hoping for better weather in 2020!
Roger Joel, AMRG Exhibition Manager.
