Campbell Riverside in operation at the Erne MRC exhibition in Lisnaskea 17th September 2016. There is a little well known blue engine that makes an occasional appearance which the younger children and even parents like.

Campbell Riverside has been exhibited on the exhibition circuit since 2014 and is continuing to prove popular for all who see it. Since my first exhibition in 2014, the layout has continued to be improved, with the introduction of the 'auto-shuttle' on the high level track and gradually improving the back scene. I have now made a start on weathering the rolling stock, this will be followed by weathering of some of the locos as well.

 

 

 

One improvement that I would like to make before the next exhibition is to make a lighting pelmet possibly using LED strips.

Hi all, Here are my first two examples of weathered 40' box cars for Campbell Riverside. This is my first attempt at weathering rolling stock, I will do a few more wagons before I attempt some loco's

Hi robbie58, Thanks, look forward to meeting you. I have made a few minor improvements and alterations since 2015, especially on the back scene and the introduction of the auto-shuttle on the high-level track.

I will be attending the first Bangor MRC show with Campbell Riverside on 26th & 27th May. The show boasts a great collection of various model layout and gauges spread across the church buildings. Public transport is in close proximity with Bangor train / bus station situated within a five minute walk from the show.

Hi all,  It has been another great year showing my Campbell Riverside layout.  This year it was shown at Wexford, Bangor (Co. Down) & Belfast.  I was also going to be at the south Dublin show in October but due to unforeseen circumstances had to pull out.   As for 2018 there are currently no bookings for Campbell Riverside, this will hopefully give me time to make a few improvements to the layout.   Also I have my 0 gauge layout 'Swanbourne Vale Light Railway' which I have been asked to take to Wexford & Belfast in 2018, http://www.rmweb.co....-2#entry2892358., so I  need to do some more work with that before next Easter!
