The doors actually open to the public at 9.30am on Saturday (10am on Sunday) at the Hartlepool College of Further Education, Stockton Street, Hartlepool TS24 7LB.

Fisherton Sarum will be one of 25 layouts at the show, along with a wide selection of trade including Hornby and Bachmann,  so is well worth a visit.

This will be Fisherton Sarum’s last public outing for 2013 although my exhibition diary page here gives information about the our planned travels next year.

I am already in discussion about a couple of appearances in 2015, so watch this space…

Hornby Magazines own St Stephen’s Road layout, on show  is also a Southern / Western Region joint station set somewhere over the border from Devon.

Also present are almost 30 traders including display stands from Hornby and Bachmann showcasing their latest models. Demonstrations from Hornby Magazine contributors include Paul Chetter, on DCC Sound and Phil Parker on building just about any kit that that takes his fancy.

I shall be kindly joined by fellow members of the High Wycombe and District MRS, Roger, Mark and Daniel along with my Mum and Dad to operate the layout for the weekend, and I express my thanks in advance to them all. Hopefully the work and amendments made to the layout over the last few months, documented on these pages, such as the turntable and box van uncoupling will be effective throughout the show.

The shows venue is right in the town centre, within walking, and almost sight, of the railway and bus stations at the Hartlepool College of Further Education, Stockton Street, Hartlepool TS24 7LB. It is open to the public on Saturday between 9:30 and 17:30, and on Sunday between 10:00 and 16:30. If you are planning a visit,and it is well worth doing so, please come and say hello.

I am now able to confirm that I have accepted an invitation to exhibit Fisherton Sarum at next year’s Hornby Magazine Live show in Hartlepool on 13th / 14th July.  This year the show moved to an in town venue at the new Hartlepool College of Further Education, and has gone from strength to strength quickly building a reputation for being a high quality show.

It will not be the first time some of stock has been seen there as the layout Ashland that Mike Wild (editor of Hornby Magazine), Richard Proudman and myself built actually during the 2011 show  was exhibited at this years show and on the Saturday ran in Southern 1946 to 1949 guise using my stock.

This will be one of only three shows that Fisherton Sarum will be attending in 2013 and the full details can be found here on the Exhibition diary page. 

Fisherton Sarum’s final outing this year will be at ‘TadRail’ the annual exhibition of the Tring and District Model Railway Club on Saturday 13th October 2012. It will be a new venue for TadRail as it is being held at the the Cottesloe School, Aylesbury Road, Wing , between Aylesbury and Leighton Buzzard, LU7 0NY.

Due to many other commitments I do not exhibit Fisherton Sarum more than 3 or 4 times a year, so catch it while you can…
