Happy 21st Anniversary DEMU

DEMU Showcase 2015

DEMU Showcase 2015

On Saturday I made a quick trip over to Burton upon Trent to visit the DEMU Showcase 2015.

This year was the 21st Anniversary of the DEMU (Diesel and Electric Modellers United) and the show was a larger one-off special to celebrate. The event was split over two sites. There was the usual Town Hall venue and a second venue at The National Brewery Centre.

I’m going to start with a look at the layouts on show at the Town Hall and begin with a personal favorite, Widnes Vine Yard.

Widnes Vine Yard (OO gauge) – A personal favorite
