Guildex 2023

The biggest and best 7mm model railway shows in 2023.

Guildex 2023

The Guild exists to further all forms of railway modelling in 7mm scale or O gauge track.

A Short History of the Guild
The Gauge O Guild itself provides members with a quality quarterly magazine, an in-house newsletter, probably the best technical manual on railway modelling that is available, three exhibitions a year and a membership of friendly expertise shared between beginner and expert, young and old.

By 1960 the production of and the market for O gauge was rapidly being lost and there was grave danger of the scale disappearing or at least becoming the preserve of the favoured few. Letters appeared in the model press urging O gauge modellers to get together and form an association to further the cause.

A Mr Loch-Kidston did much writing, but it was left to Harold Bower to arrange an initial meeting, with attendant publicity, to bring together O gauge enthusiasts. The first meeting took place in railway owned offices in Euston Square, London. Around twenty people turned out and the Gauge O Guild came into being in August 1956.

Looking back at 2022
A huge thank you to all of the exhibitors and traders and visitors who attended Guildex 2022.

We have learned a great deal about the new venue but all in all it was successful and as many issues as possible were dealt with as soon as possible. All of the venue staff were excellent. The catering team were overwhelmed by the numbers but we will address that. The car parkers and overnight security were extremely good and after an initial hiccup with the courtesy bus that was working well too.

We are very appreciative for all those who filled in feedback forms and if you have comments you wish to share, please do so. That will help us to improve next year.
