Another week, another show! Fortunately this one was within walking distance. I have been a regular attender at the Aberdeen Model Railway Club Exhibition for the last dozen or so years. This is the fourth year that it has been held in the sports hall at the Robert Godon University.

|Aberdeen Modellers Society: Schnellboote.
|More from the Aberdeen Modellers Society.
|And some more.
|My area of modelling interest.
|Cardale Halt: Fourdon Club.
|The engine had real steam effect.
|Inverness Club: I can remember those billboards!
|Black Road: Real steam engines!
|Track runs over a dam.
|Through rural scenery.
|Into a tunnel.
|I followed this train along the route.
|And over this spectacular bridge.
|This display is made from simple card buildings.
|Second hand and recycled engines, rolling stock and track.
|It shows what can be done on a budget.
I was there late morning, when there was not a huge attendance, and was able to visit the traders. I made a dent in Squires stock (as usual) and picked up some resin walls from Aberdour MR Co. It was good to see Mutineer miniatures attending, although they only had scenics on their stall.
By all accounts, it was a busy afternoon. This is a really good show for all the family.
