A bright spring day and huge numbers of narrow gauge modelling enthusiasts headed for Shepton Mallet in
for the 16th annual modelfest splendidly organised by the hard working Small & Delightful team. Delightful it certainly was, small it certainly wasn't with over 30 layouts present in all scales from 2mm to 16mm and an attendance by just about all the Somerset UK based specialist narrow gauge modelling traders, including Parkside Dundas all the way from Kirkcaldy, in Fife, 450 miles and 10 hours drive away.
Many people that I spoke to considered that this was the best NGSW yet and the 009 Society reported record sales figures. I noticed that the crowds around the 7mm NGA stand were much deeper than usual as well. I think everyone must be spending their pounds while they still have some value left!
