Neal's N-Gauging Trains at NMRA British Region Convention

Hi, all,

In addition to the model railroading public service announcement below by the X2011 West
Facebook team bringing you near real-time pictures
from the NMRA British Region 65th annual Convention that is
taking place in Derby, UK Oct 22-24, 2010:

X2011 West Facebook page

I also have an update on Neal Carnaby of Neal's N-Gauging Trains.

This year's British Region NMRA Convention is another superb one, and the X2011
West National NMRA Convention 2011 committee would like to share
with all of us, so that we all can appreciate and applaud our
superb international model railroading colleagues.

In particular, I know this forum would enjoy the great N scale layouts on display:





I also saw Neal Carnaby of Neal's N-Gauging Trains.  Neal has not gone away, he
is still active in N scale distribution of his specific products and imports
(and he can be contacted at the email on the picture):



Including his new etched metal chain link fences with barbed wire:



:-)  Good to see Neal.

NMRA British Region ( NMRA BR -
National Model Railroad Association British Region
)was established
in 1945 and now has over 600 members, mostly in the UK but also
in other parts of Europe, and provides a focus in the UK for
modellers of North American prototypes in all scales.

Again, you can see more photos at the X2011 West Facebook page:

Enjoy this thread, and more to come Sat 10/23 and Sun 10/24!

I would like to add that i thought the NMRA BR managed to put on another good show and i went away a satisfied customer.

The two layouts pictured were the only N layouts at the show, but were nicely done, and there was plenty of trader support for N modellers.

I just wish i lived nearer Bournemouth, which is where next years will be!!

Alasdair ;D

Is Brittish N gauge or N scale? I notice that Neal makes a lot of his stuff at 1/150.

I havent been to Neals in years. He had good prices and is a very good guy and what not, I just over time got tired of everything I wanted being packed away in trailers awaiting to be brought to a train show somewhere and not available to his walk in customers.
I WANNA SEE THE BOAT MOVIE!

Does Neal have a website anymore? It has been elusive in the past.

Hi, NandW,

Neal said that he knows he needs to get a web site up and hopes to do that sometime later this year.
In these difficult economic times, Neal is working a regular full time job, so the fact that he is still
making the time/energy to provide us with some of his unique items is a benefit to all and a testimony
to who he is.

Here's a couple shots of the brass fences that he's got avail.

A barbed wire fence, i.e. this kind of fence:



The lower of the 2 fences here by Neal is his barbed wire etched fence (the upper is chain link + barbed wire):



Neal does have a wooden rail fence as well,
i.e. this kind of fence:



Here's Neal's wooden fence etched brass versions:



Contact Neil Carnaby at nealsngauge@aol.com for more info.

Enjoy, all.  Just trying to help us all out.  Good to see that Neal Carnaby is still with us N scalers.  :-)
