AMRA WA Annual Exhibition 2018 - Day 3

Hey hey, an early start for everyone today as the annual awards for the exhibition were announced this morning before the door opened to the public. Bencubbin made a clean sweep of all the awards taking out the "The Richard Smart Memorial Cup",  "Jack Stanbridge Trophy for Best Model Railway as Judged by other Exhibitors" and the "Bill Gardner Cup for Best Model Railway". As promised, the day was run using modern era rollingstock. After some teething issues, trains settled into some perfect running for the day. All in all, a good exhibition which was enjoyed by all. Congratulations goes to Greg Aitken for all his hard work and effort to bring his home layout to an exhibition. As the awards it won clearly show, it was a job well done.
