    I'm sure you all remember the reports at the time, but following the vandalism of the 2019 exhibition and 2 years of postponement due to Covid, the Market Deeping club are finally getting to put on another show.

    https://www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk/news/people/peterborough-model-railway-clubs-exhibition-returns-for-first-time-in-three-years-after-last-show-was-vandalised-3688533

    We will be there representing American HO modelling with our layout: Padden Flatts

    Further details on their site: https://www.mdmrc.org/

    Hoping for a good turnout and plenty of support. Here's to train shows!

    Well safe to say it was a success from many sides.

    Quite a bit of press coverage: https://www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk...exhibition-since-vandalised-2019-show-3696050

    There were TV cameras there Saturday and made the local news Saturday night. Had visitors there Sunday that said they came as a result of seeing it on TV.

    It was hard for the club to judge what to expect number wise but hoped for 600-700 across the weekend but had achieved that before close of play on Saturday!

    We were the first layout most people saw and the first few hours it was 2/3 deep

    I snuck out for the quick pic above.

    There were 4 halls in total, I did get to lookaround briefly on Saturday afternoon in a lull but no pictures.

    There are numerous videos posted to Youtube by attendees:

    It was nice that it was so well supported by both modellers and families, hopefully some future modellers will come from it.

    No more shows lined up for us but a few potentials for next year.
