TVNAM 2015

I went to the Trent Valley North American Modellers (TVNAM) meet last Saturday and it was up to its normal great standard.  I met loads of friends, there was great trade and some really interesting layouts.  Details of the show can be found here.

Here are some photos of the show:

I love Andy Gautrey’s roads.  They are made with crazy foam covered with grout.  I think they look excellent.

  1. Nice pics Kathy, do please send a few of the best to Matin Boyask for Roundhouse.
    I am jealous as you have a billboard that is not in my huge collection. It is in your heading banner and is yellow with a butterfly on. How much or what do you need that I have for it? I have a few duplicates and will offer two for one. All have Kadee wheels and couplers. Ask me for photos if interested. I assume HO all round?
