I visited this exhibition earlier and can highly recommend it,

A great selection of layouts on show and some excellent bargains to be had at the various trade stands-(thank you Seamus Graham)

Layouts that done it for me were Rathmichael OO gauge,Joseph's bridge OO gauge,Heathfield and Llangollen N gauge.

Nice to meet baseboard Dave, Murrayec and Brian Collins with his excellent range of road vehicles-looking forward to his future release of the Bus Eireann Expressway liveried SP111.

Hi All


Great to meet all who came over to say hello today, with all the talking and things to do I never got to take a few pictures!


Yes lots of layouts- leaning to the N Gauge side, and loads of things to buy!! A well presented show and very easy to get around- hopefully more will come tomorrow!


I picked up a nice little N Gauge white metal kit of a 45t Boom-handler / Reach-Stacker;-

Looking forward to seeing and hearing a sound Class C loco a forum member is bringing in tomorrow.


We have to invent a barrier system without those mad feet that everyone trips on, their disastrous!


Hopefully will get a few photos

Had a Fab day yesterday, Some Quality layouts, The O gauge was superb, that Western was only sublime along with the class 25..Need more steam locos on it though!! Gerrys GWR layout was fab to along with some other cracking N gauge exhibits, The new Wexford Layout based on the wexford line was smashing. Lovely Ship Models and some Excellent Aer Corps Models on display.

Thank you all for the nice comments about the show. It is an honour for me to organise the event the past 7 years and it is lovely that I get great support from my fellow members in Wexford MRC and all the other clubs and organisations who exhibit and make the show what it is. It`s easy to organise a show but the show would not be possible without the exhibitors,sponsors and the public who support it. Many thanks to everyone here and beyond for their continued support. It is intended to continue the Easter tradition next year again with Easter landing on Sunday 27th & Monday 28th March 2016.

"Jim Kearns Memorial" best layout award won by "Dorset St.Junction" by MRSI
