FOR all those enthusiasts TaD-Rail (Tring & District Model Railway Club) are holding an exhibition at Ashlyns School, Berkhamsted on Saturday 10 October 2009. This is to be quite a big affair occupying 4 halls. There will be some superb layouts on show with names like Chiltern Hills, Caeau Uchaf. and also some American and continental layouts. However the Southwold Railway (1879 –1929) intrigues me. It was a 3ft narrow guage track that ran from Halesworth to the Suffolk seaside town of Southwwold. I remember a few years back walking along much of the disused track towards Walberwick where it crossed the river Blyth to Southwold.

You will also be able to visit the many Trade and Society stands. A wide range of refreshments, free parking at the school, and disabled visitor access for 3 of the 4 halls.. Admission Adults £4.50, Senior £4.00, Child £2.50 and Family (2+2) £11.

Why not have a day out – you could even go by rail!
