Very friendly coarse O gauge 3-rail group, no membership needed. Bring your own locos and stock to run, vintage or modern, clockwork or electric or just come to watch and chat with fellow enthusiasts. Home-made snacks, cakes, tea and coffee available. Fantastic location next to the mighty Harringworth viaduct.Car parking. Bi-monthly. NB this is not an exhibition as such, the accent is on running. There is usually a bring and buy table.


An opportunity for running coarse O gauge electric and clockwork trains on 3-rail track and chatting with fellow-enthusiasts. Vintage as well as modern trains can be run so Hornby tinplate, Leeds, Bonds and even Bassett-Lowke sometimes run. Revival tinplate such as Ace, Darstaed and Seven Mill also very welcome, we can also accommodate MTH and Atlas. Mostly models of steam trains but Diesel/electric welcome too. Informal group so as long as it's O gauge and has wheels it will be welcome. Two-rail running possible on 50” radius Atlas track. Fourtracks planned: (1) 27" (Atlas) & 36" radius (Merkur tinplate) and 50" radius (Atlas) (2) 27” Radius (Atlas)


Even if you have no trains to bring, why not just come to enjoy these amazing trains running in a beautiful English village virtually underneath the eighty-two arch, 1.2 km Harringworth viaduct? A stunning location. A six-coach O gauge train measures about ten feet in length so they are amazing to watch. Close to the beautiful Rutland towns of Uppingham and Oakham. Our home-made cake is legendary, also freshly-prepared sandwiches and the usual drinks.


Please bring any O gauge buildings, stations, signal boxes, water towers, bridges, signals & ancillaries or any other die-cast models which you would like to show.






If it's got wheels and it's O gauge and you'd like to bring it along to run - we'd be delighted to see you. All-day home-made cakes, freshly-made sandwiches etc. Two trade tables plus bring and buy.
