The 2011 Gauge 1 North Model Railway Exhibition in Bakewell

30 September 2011

  Gauge 1 North Model Railway Exhibition 2011  

The Gauge 1 Model Railway Association held their annual Gauge 1 North show at the Agricultural Business Centre, Bakewell, Derbyshire on July 16.


Despite being seen as a 'niche' scale, the show was extremely well attended, with the Anglia Roads layout of the East Anglia G1MRA Group proving quite a draw - there was a constantly changing fleet of motive power, electric, battery and steam - even a working GWR slip coach!

Short video highlights:
 

Layouts included 'Anglia Roads', 'Moordale', and 'Worcester Road'.
