One of the best-curated model railway exhibitions ever was undoubtedly the Model Railway Journal Exhibition of November 1990 at Central Hall, Westminster. Sadly, though I was 7 when this took place I missed out on this great gathering. This is a collection of my favourite model railway home and exhibition layouts in differing model ambition scales that would all appear at my fantasy model railway exhibition…
