Pendle Forest Model Railway Society - Annual Exhibition 2017


East Lancashire model railway enthusiasts are in for a real treat when the Pendle Forest Model Railway Society holds it’s annual model railway exhibition on Saturday & Sunday November 18th – 19th. The exhibition will be at Park High School, Venables Av, Colne and the Society reckons they will have something there for everyone.


Top of the bill is the Society’s layout ‘Earby’ which recaptures the look of the station and the surrounding area as it was in the 1960’s. Never slow to latch on to modern technology, Society members have created most of the buildings using 3D printing and the result is very impressive.


An unusual item of possible historical significance is ‘Rock n Rail’ a model of an early rail way based on artifacts discovered in a dig on a local allotment. Whilst the dating of the items found has yet to be determined it would seems possible that rail ways might well have been around a few millennia before the currently accepted historical dates of the early 1800’s!


At the exhibition will be many other layouts in a range of different scales and gauges, modellers from Creil, France will be there with a modeling workshop, there will be a demonstration of weathering techniques and children will have the chance to drive a train themselves.


Alongside the models there will be a range of traders selling everything from train sets to kits and detailing parts plus there will be full catering available throughout the event.


The exhibition is open from 10am to 5pm Saturday, 10am to 4pm Sunday and there is full disabled access to the show.
Admission is £5.00 adults, £3.00 children, £4.00 concessions and £14.00 families (2+2)
Further details from David Carter on 07770 331348




Some of the models on show this year will be :


Earby – showing Earby station as it was in the 1096s
Oldswick TMD OO – a modern locomotive maintenance depot.
Burnaby – a North American layout.
Whittham Grove – a London based scene.
