Received the following update:
Hello,
Re your posting on the model show we have at Crich, there is no narrow gauge this year at the moment but there is the 'Bridges' layout in T scale which is a model of the Forth Railway bridge, all 3d printed and also Blackpool by Peter Whitley, one of our own electrical type people. This is DCC and is run by his home made control unit. His 4mm scale models of the blackpool illuminated trams are a delight with working lights [hundreds of miniature led's on each tram!" target="_blank" >
Next year will be my 009 layout "Avyn-A-Llyin" and my brother's On30 layout "Karolina Falls".
Hope this helps
Regards
Andy [one of the model show helpers" target="_blank" >
