THE GRANGE Centre at Midhurst is preparing to put on its last modellers show in the current building on January 5.

Included will be a model of the proposed Redford Junction which would have been on the Midhurst to Haslemere railway line if plans had ever found their way off the drawing board.

The model is owned, and will be exhibited by, Paul Hopkins from Bognor Regis.

Also on show will be a model of the overhead railway line in Germany, built by Dave and Iris Guscott who live in Liss.

“The main sports hall will be jam packed with railway layouts from clubs including Liphook Model Railway Group celebrating their 50-year anniversary next year.

“Bognor Regis Model Railway Club, Astolat of Guildford and other railway clubs and enthusiasts from the South.

“The show has an appeal for all ages and covers every type of models and modelling suppliers to suit everyone.”
