Eurospoor 2017: 25 year! A jubilee year with extra layouts!
3 - 5 November 2017, Jaarbeurs Utrecht, NL
(Sunday 5 November free entrance for children under the age of 12 with e-ticket).
For 25 years, Leo and Chitra Hendriksen are the driving force behind the Eurospoor train. Started in a small hall in Zaandam, the Netherlands it slowly grew to become an international event for hobbyists coming to the Jaarbeurs from far and wide. The name 'Eurospoor' for the event came almost by itself as the borders would open in 1993, making it easier for foreigners to cross national borders with goods and layouts without much formalities.
Now for the 25th time Model railway buffs should be getting ready for Europe's largest model railway event, EUROSPOOR, which takes place this year in the Jaarbeurs (trade fair centre) in Utrecht, the Netherlands on 3, 4 and 5 November 2017. A surface area of 23,000 square meters will offer visitors the chance to view over 60 model railways belonging to clubs from the Netherlands as well as other countries, extensive model train collections, model-making demonstrations, stands of representatives and retailers, a model railway market of appr. 1000 meter length where train-lovers offer their used trains, accesories and collectors' items for sale or exchange.

We have 14 different railway layouts from Z gauge to O gauge, including two making their exhibition debut - BelmontBahn (HO) and Jongreg (OO-9) plus a slighter longer model of the Volks Electric Railway (OO-9), operated by Noel and Derek on Sunday only, that now includes Black Rock Halt, Halfway and the Aquarium stop. There will also be a number of local traders joining us plus societies are to be represented as well - such as the Southern Electric Group, the Network South-East society and the 4DD Double deck group. Don't know what a 4DD is/was? There's only one way to find out...!


Close to the A2, Ebbsfleet station and Bluewater, Northfleet School for Girls (DA11 8AQ) has: Free on-site parking, wheelchair access, the usual friendly atmosphere and a regular bus service that stops outside. Our members are happy to assist those who need assistance and answer enquiries about the Show or Society.


Once again, we are so proud of our exhibition that children accompanied by an adult are able to join us for FREE. So that means, one adult can bring several children with them and only pay £4!


An extensive range of hot and cold food and refreshments will be available. Plus on Sunday we will again be serving roast dinners with all the trimmings between 12-2pm; Beef, Turkey and a vegetarian option.


Ebbsfleet railway station is only 17 minutes from Central London, 10 minutes from Stratford International and Gravesend railway station is 11 minutes from Dartford. Northfleet School for Girls is about 2-3 minutes drive from the Northfleet turn-off from the A2.


Bus route 481 serves Gravesend town centre, Ebbsfleet station and Bluewater shopping centre and stops outside the school on both days. Other regular bus services stop close by to Northfleet School for Girls. Anyone arriving by bus will be able to have one free tea or coffee on production of their bus ticket.

----- THE EMGS 4mm Modellers Workshop
By Leander


Event Name: EM Gauge Society 4mm Modellers Workshop

Address: Wells Town Hall<br />Market Square<br />Wells<br />Somerset<br />BA5 2RB

Day 1: 4th November 2017
Opening times Day 1: 10.30am - 4.30pm
Prices: u00a35<br />EMGS Members Free

Website: http://www.emgs.org/...odellers-event/

Disability access: Unknown
Car parking: No

Organising body: The EM Gauge Society
Organiser: Roger Sawyer Secretary EMGS<br />info@emgs.org

This event is organised by the North West Somerset Group of the EM Gauge Society, for modellers of all abilities, as part of the EM Gauge Society Members Day and AGM.
The Workshop will be held in the upstairs Main Hall of the building. The normal Wells Saturday Market will be outside in the Market Place; with an antiques and collectables fair in the Foyer and Old Court Room. The EMGS AGM will be held in a separate room, so will not impinge on the workshop.


The aim of this 4mm Modeller’s Day is to encourage all modellers (be they 4mm of any gauge or other scales) to come and spent a pleasant day watching, talking and doing the things that make model railways such a wonderful hobby. The demonstrators will be very happy to discuss any problems you may have and, depending on the problem, give you hands on experience in sorting the problem out. Alternatively you may wish to discuss the pro’s and con’s of various gauges and if you have any rolling stock give them a run on the test track.
At no time will there be anyone telling you that you are in the wrong scale or gauge.


With the trade attendance, albeit limited, you should be able to stock up on essentials before the next exhibition.Come and learn, chat and socialize with fellow modellers.
