Garden Rail – Miniature Railway Exhibition

1940's Pin-Up Entertainer Kitten von Mew

This weekend (15th March 2014), we went to Warwickshire Exhibition Centre’s Garden Rail show! It was fantastic, with everything from 2 Gauge to T Gauge! As usual I was completely fascinated with all the little things and aging techniques. Some of the little people were completely hilarious and the hand built trains were so awe inspiring! Some of my favourites were the industrial set ups that reminded me of Tysley’s depot and a 1930’s tin railway with original and repro pieces (yes they actually make them just like the originals!).

Here are some photos I took on my way around…
