Chesterfield Railway Modellers Show 2018

Post by dkightley »

Last weekend saw this show take place at the Agricultural Centre in Bakewell. Derbyshire.

Although there wasn't a T gauge layout on show, T gauge was represented on the Sunday on the MERG stand. I had my test track there with a Class 158 DMU set running under DCC control using a system built from MERG kits.

There were the usual "Wow! Isn't it small!" comments....and a lot of disbelief that the DMU power cars were fitted with DCC decoder boards. And there were a good number of visitors that recognised me and the Scotrail DMUs as being linked with The Bridge...which seems to now be one of the "known about" show layouts.

Its nice to know that T gauge might now have its place in the model railway world in the UK!! ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)
