Vintage Toy Train Show

A report on the 2006 Alresford Toy Train Show 


Paul and Jennifer Brookes were exhibiting a substantial collection of Tin signs by various makers both on and off their buildings. They were also selling  from their vast collection of Master Models and related items.


Ashley Barton was again showing his enchanting Kitmaster Airfix layout . My wife Fiona and friend Julie thought this was the best exhibit  due to the numerous working accessories Ashley has managed to fit in.

David Holmes with able assistance from Brian Arnold and their partners put on a lovely Bakelite track Trix layout  which again seemed to have a bit of a Southern theme.

James Day was promoting the TCS  plus selling his excellent spares as well as assisting Tony Penn who had set up a 4 track Battlespace layout.

Although mainly Tri-ang Hornby there  was a Bachmann Missile Train and the Lima Leopold Gun set.

Also noted were the Lionel HO Helicopter car and exploding wagon which Tri-ang copied (with consent) so successfully.


Alongside, Bob Boekhout who came over from the Netherlands to display his exquisite Tri-ang Standard gauge set complete with Rubber buildings and Minic cars and trucks.
