EAST at Expo NG

2015

This is EAST reporting from Expo Narrow Gauge 2015 at Swanley in Kent!

The event was chosen to be the venue for our maiden outing for a new L&B sales/information stand which was finished very recently. It was a great success with lots of interest in the L&B at the stand and a good number of sales. It was great to meet many new people and catch up with friends and L&B members.
