It was nice to be invited back to this event which is in a great location next to the South Downs Light Railway running track. We set up prior to the weekend event which made it more relaxing on the Saturday. All the South Down’s rolling stock was adorned with Teddy Bears which made it a really fun family affair.

If you have never taken a run on the South Down’s Light railway it is worth a trip. The line runs around the garden centre then heads north up a steep incline which makes the engines really work hard in their endeavour to reach the top of the climb.

The weather this year behaved itself and stayed dry over the weekend. Our West Sussex layout proved popular with families and Thomas was a favourite as usual. Mike got into the spirit of the weekend and had his face painted like Thomas – such a kid!
