It has now become something of a tradition amongst those who “keep up with the curve” to find themselves halfway through January each year and already have 2 super narrow gauge modelling events under their belts. This year was no different, despite the weather and the cancellation of a couple of large commercial shows due mainly to the reluctance of some layout owners to risk travelling.
A couple of days before the Beds & Bucks NG Group members open day at Barton le Clay in Bedfordshire, organiser Mark Howe feared the worst as several of his own booked layouts cancelled, but the Group showed some good British Dunkirk spirit and rallied to the call-up of the reserves with a vengeance! So much so in fact that the final roll-call on the day found no less than 18 narrow gauge layouts, and not all of them tiny micro’s, being set up in the village hall. That is 2 more layouts than were presented at Expong folks!
