The Christmas Show Manchester 2018

If you’ve got time tomorrow, this years Manchester Show is really worth making the effort. If you like Minories, and BR Blue, Alan Whitehouse’s Hallam Town in 2FS will float your boat,

Geoff Kent’s sublime Black Lion Crossing features EM Gauge and BR steam.

For OO Andy Jones’s Tarring Neville showcases an unusual and highly effective peninsula design, with superb detail touches and buildings, real ‘presentation’ food for thought.

For O gauge Gordon and Maggie Gravett’s Aran Quay oozes atmosphere

And for me one of the best P4 layouts I’ve seen, Pwllheli from Jonathan Buckie. This sort of attention to detail in a contemporary era layout isn’t common, combined with a recognisable location and brilliant colour balance, Pwllheli is worth searching out!

Manchester 2018 very much in the exhibition Premier League, if you can go, just do it!
