Warley Model Railway Show 2012

I have not visited the Warley show at the NEC for a number of years. My last visit (some 3 or 4 years ago) was quite exhausting.

I am pleased to say that this years show was my most enjoyable visit to the exhibition, with some very impressive modelling on display.

‘Cliffhanger’ was a very impressive layout; constructed on a steeply angled base board. More on this superb layout can be found here.

Another great layout was ‘Veldhoveh 1935’. Positioned in a picture frame and viewed from a fixed perspective. This super small layout gives the impression of looking along a busy street in 1935 to a photo-realistic finish. It is all achieved with the clever use of different scale buildings and trains, not to mention the novel idea of creating a ‘skewed’ train that appears to be driving off into the distance.

If you can understand Dutch and fancy reading more about it, visit here.

Below is my video of the the show, enjoy!
