Southport Model Railway Exhibition 2015

This is always a good show that is well worth a visit. This year it was held over the weekend of the 7th/8th November at Greenbank High School.

I ran into my old friend Geoff Payne who was running the West Lancashire Light Railway stand. Geoff is an Aintree Village Parish Councillor of long standing. It was nice to catch up with him especially as I not previously realised that he was a fellow railway enthusiast.

I also spied my old chum Roger Bell running the OPSTA stall. Roger is a also a Labour member of West Lancs Borough Council and was deep in conversation with someone (Roger is a big talker!). I thought I would have a chin wag with him later, trouble is he must have seen me as I could not find him on my second circuit! Only kidding Roger.

Here are 3 photos I took at the exhibition:-
