Saturday 1 & Sunday 2 February : L&B TVG at Alton FebEx 2020

The L&BR Thames Valley Group were very pleased to be invited to FebEx 2020 - the model railway exhibition organised by Alton Model Railway Group.

The TVG stand was in an excellent position, just inside the door of one of the halls. (Photo John Jones.)

Every visitor had to come past us on their way in to see the model railway layouts and again on the way out. This gave us two opportunities to engage them in conversation and to tell them of some of the delights of the L&BR.

We gave visitors leaflets about the railway, Exmoor and Lynton & Lynmouth. Many said they will visit Woody Bay while staying in the area for a holiday or short break.

A number of visitors were so impressed by what the L&B has already achieved that they took membership application forms and said they would sign up once they got home.

Thanks to John Jones, Roger Beazer and Alan Pearce for all their hard work during the weekend.

Thames Valley Group members are now looking forward to taking the exhibition stand to Ropley Station when Flying Scotsman visits the Mid Hants Railway later this month. If you have bought tickets for that event then do please find us in the viewing gallery of the carriage shed and say hallo to those manning the L&B stand.
