Get in the SWING at Felpham Model Railway Exhibition

The very popular annual exhibition of a local area group of Narrow Gauge railway modellers will be a Mecca for adults and children who have any interest in this fascinating hobby. The show, which is the largest of its type in this area, is expected to attract visitors from all over the South to enjoy the many model railway layouts on display (nineteen are already booked to appear) and visit the stands of 20 suppliers of new and second hand model railway equipment, books and tools. As well as the ‘Ride on steam railway’* (weather permitting), there will also be the team of caterers ready to supply our well known bacon rolls and other home prepared refreshments throughout the day.

The organizers are the South Downs Group of the 7mm Narrow Gauge Association who call the show, SWING 2015.

S.W.I.N.G is an acronym for “Small and Wonderful Industrial and Narrow Gauge” although the group have interests in all aspects of industrial and narrow gauge, and modelling railways in general. We have a reputation for presenting an exhibition that showcases some of the best (generally small) layouts to be found on the circuit and to do this in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Come and join us – we can promise an interesting and worthwhile visit.

This year, under 16 year olds will be permitted free entry to the exhibition if they are accompanied by an adult.

Several of the group members, most of which live in an area from Emsworth (Hants) to Worthing (West Sussex), have their own layouts, which they are pleased to discuss with visitors, giving help and advice on many aspects of building and operation. This year, visitors attending the exhibition may be invited to an informal open day later in the year at a local venue, to view some of these layouts and learn what the friendly group can offer to established modellers and those new to the hobby.

The SWING Model Railway Exhibition will be in a NEW VENUE this year at Felpham Community College,  Felpham, Bognor Regis, PO22 7NU on Saturday 16th May 2015 from 10.00am. till 4.30pm.
