Peak Exhibition 2017

Sutton Hilltop (4mm OO gauge)

Peak (Bakewell) Exhibition 2017

We had a family trip out to Bakewell on Sunday to see the 2017 Peak Model Railway Exhibition organised by the Chesterfield Railway Modellers. It isn’t a huge show but it’s one of my favourites locally. So, here are a few of the layouts that caught my eye.

Sutton Hilltop (4mm OO gauge) ā€“ I particularly liked the landscape and viaduct.

Yorkshire Coast Tramway (4mm OO gauge) ā€“ Nicely modelled and great use of the what I image is a modified Faller car system for the trucks and buses.

Forth Bridge (T scale) – An excellent model and really gives you a sense of how enormous the full size bridge is.

A View from the Abbey (2mm N gauge) ā€“ Nicely modelled and visually interesting.

I did pick up a couple of engines for Dales Peak, while I was there (Well it would be rude not to) but more about them in a future post. šŸ™‚
