SWING, an acronym for "Small and Wonderful Industrial, Narrow Gauge and light railways", is the now well established and popular Annual Exhibition held by the South Downs Area Group of the 7mm Narrow Gauge Association.

We have a reputation for presenting an exhibition which showcases some of the finest layouts to be found on the circuit which have been inspired by industrial, light railway or narrow gauge prototypes. We aim to do this with a show which offers welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Come and join us - we can promise an interesting and worthwhile visit.

If you are tempted but come from further afield, why not make a weekend of it? There are plenty of hotels and B&Bs in the area and you are within an easy drive of the Amberley Industrial Museum with its 2 ft gauge railway, Hollycombe Collection, the Bluebell to the north-east and the mid-Hants railway to the north west - and much more!. Treat yourselves and your family!
