Some of the more eagle eyed readers of this little corner of the blogosphere will have no doubt noticed that the over the last couple of weeks the number of booked appearances of Fisherton Sarum at exhibitions has increased with a couple added to the diary for this year and also for 2018 too.  As I only purposely exhibit at between one or three shows a year on average it is always good to see and talk to readers of this blog at such shows and chat about all things Southern Railway whilst playing trains.

nevard_081024_fisherton_DSC_2673_webSo just a heads up that the current list of booked shows are as follows;  if you are in the area and able to come along please say hello:

Also by way of even more advanced notice the following appearances are booked for 2018.

Any other appearances of either Fisherton Sarum or even perhaps Canute Road Quay will also appear on my Exhibition Diary page here so check back from time to time for more information.

Happy New Year, lets hope that 2017 is not eventful for the wrong reasons like some of the events from last year (to many RIPs to mention)… the first picture of the month for 2017 is…

A quiet period on shed with Bulleid pacific 21C102 “Salisbury” being cleaned, a modified Hornby fitted with original style cab and short smoke deflectors. A Drummond 4-4-0 L11 “Large Hopper” No 405 is being coaled. She has been built from Lodden etched brass kit. An Adams 0-4-4T O2 No 213 also simmers on shed.

Just a quick heads up, the next few days will see announcements from both Hornby and Bachmann of their 2017 ranges.
Hornby will be releasing their full range to traders at a series of meetings this week commencing this Wednesday (4th January) at around 10am, I will post my round up of the relevant Southern related releases planned as soon as the full range is live (as I do not want to jump the gun) on the Hornby web channels.
Bachmann will be presenting their 2017/18 plans to the media, and meeting with many of their trade partners, next Sunday (8th January), and I will bring you news of any items of a Southern interest from the venue during the day, so watch this space..,

It’s a cold and bright December Morning as we approach Christmas at Fisherton Sarum and snow lay round about, lightly dusting, crisp and even, although services have so far been largely unaffected (remember when that was the case, stikes aside?).

As the festive season and New Year break is upon us, I just wanted to say many thanks to all of you whom have taken the time to read my ramblings over the past 12 months. I hope you have found such ramblings interesting and informative. I have also enjoyed corresponding with many of you that have made contact me either directly at shows, email or via the comments field on my various posts. I look forward to corresponding with you again in the New Year.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the various manufacturers, publishers and retailers whom have allowed me privileged access to some of their plans and developments and often taken on board feedback, suggestions and advice, with the sole aim of promoting and furthering modelling of the Southern Railway / Southern Region.

Seasons greetings, whatever your faith or beliefs, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all! Fill up your life with love, compassion, tolerance, peace, happiness and perhaps hopefully some time for modelling!
