Gaugemaster G Scale Show - 6th June 2015

Matt Taylor




PAT PETTETT reports from our outdoor railway show last weekend.

G Gauge Show

Last Saturday we held our annual G Gauge show, to promote outdoor model railways for the summer. Luckily the weather was kind to us!

G Gauge Show

A wide variety of stock was run, from LGB tank locos to Thomas, as well as painstakingly hand-built rolling stock.

G Gauge Show

The huge Sussex G Scale Group layout being put together – despite the size it is very well thought out and goes up quickly, and is of variable length.

G Gauge Show

The G Scale Group ran multiple locomotives all day.

G Gauge Show

Craig and Pat starting to set up our own track – all of the points are digitally controlled from mobile phones and the Roco Z21. Buildings await placement near the station area. This year we opted for a double track arrangement – this was much more flexible in terms of running than the single loop we have used in the past.

G Gauge Show

Pat’s rather ancient Forney loco happily stomps around the undulating curve by the roadside.

G Gauge Show

Just inside the front door, Charlie Fox-Wilson showed off just a very small part of Broke-Brick Mountain, the Old West G-Scale layout which won Best In Show at our Open Weekend last September.

G Gauge Show

In the shop we made sure to display the latest G Scale items from Piko.

G Gauge Show

Other layouts in attendance included Maggie Pettett's Little Green Buildings. This shows just how little space is needed for G scale modelling, as the main circle is made from radius 1 track. The layout is just four feet six inches wide! Amazingly many of the buildings are made from cereal packets – pretty much anything can be used as a raw material for modelling.

G Gauge Show

Also on show was Brian Taylor's Southern dockside scene with a fantastic hand-painted backscene.
It was a great show overall, with lots of positive interest from the visiting public. Hopefully these pictures have inspired you to take your railway out into the garden this summer!

Pat will be following this up with a few more G Scale-based articles throughout the summer.
