The Mid Wales Model Railway Show 2019
Organised by the Newtown Model Railway Society
Welshpool Town Hall, Saturday 26th October 2019,
Doors open 10am, close 5pm
Layouts in the main hall;-
Roy Link “Crowsnest Tramway” – taking a break from his publishing business to show his superlative 16mm scale model – we believe for the first time in public.
Karl Crowther “Hebble Vale Goods” – guest editor of Model Railway Journal and professional modelmaker with a superb rendition of the Lancashire and Yorkshire borders in 4mm scale EM gauge.
Paul Holmes “Hulme End” – another new narrow gauge layout in 7mm scale from a prolific builder of quality models. 17.5mm track gauge, DCC with sound and smoke effects
Ben Lord “Amalgamated Wagon Works” – showing the 7mm standard gauge layout first built by David H Smith, Ben and the Rochdale group have turned this in to an entertaining shunting layout, proving that good 7mm scale can be built in small spaces.
Barrie Johnston “Pen-y-Graig” – a skilfully executed slate quarry model in 5.5mm scale. Completely scratchbuilt with working incline and man powered wagons. Possibly the most atmospheric slate quarry model since Dave Rowe’s early dioramas.
Iain Chippendale “Clough Street Sidings” – 7mm scale standard gauge – Iain and his team from the Alsager MRS have supported our show in the past – This is another of the excellent layouts that they have built over the years. Visitors are encouraged to try their hand at operating.
Peter Kazer “Blythborough” – Peter is probably one of the best narrow gauge modellers in the country today and has been a long term supporter of the Welshpool Show. The model is built to a scale of ¼ inch to the foot and represents the intermediate station on the Southwold Railway – absolutely top class modelling.
Tony Bucknell “ Harkness” – based on the North Sunderland Railway this is a first for Tony in EM gauge , and features some excellent kit built rolling stock.
Newtown Model Railway Society “Pool Road” - the host club’s 4mm finescale layout has recently been rewired and renovated. Not often on the exhibition trail – enjoy it while you can.
Full support from the Corris Railway Society, the Bishop’s Castle Railway Society and the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway Society, including Dave Rowe’s iconic “Llareggub” in OO9.
Trade support from Tractex, Buffer Books and John Percival’s Walsworth Models.
Full demonstration of modelling by Phil May and Derek Mundy.
Tea, Coffee and cakes will be available to the public in the lower hall, together with displays by the Cambrian Engineering Society, Walter Turner, Alan Crowe with the W&L town trail and a first appearance of the Newtown MRS “Montgomery ( Bishop’s Castle Railway )“.

The Newhaven & District Model Railway Club 2019 exhibition is being held at the Seaford Baptist Church Hall, Belgrave Road, Seaford, East Sussex BN25 2EE on Saturday 26th October 2018 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. The venue is a 5 minute walk from Seaford Station turning left from the station onto the A259 towards Newhaven; it is just past the British Legion on the right hand side of the road. Brighton & Hove buses 12 and 12A stop close by.
The club has now been in existence for 60 years and after some recent turbulent times we have finally found and moved into our own clubroom in a secure location of Newhaven which has disabled access, we have also achieved charitable status, so like most clubs we have bills to pay, please support out show, in turn we support the local community.

    • 31 October 2020 Until 01 November 2020
      After much consideration, we have decided that it is in the best interest of the club & it's members, our exhibitors, traders & the general public to cancel this year's Spalding Model Railway Exhibition which was to be held across the weekend of October 31st & November 1st, 2020.
      A large number of the people involved in our hobby are likely to have been shielding to protect their most important health & any kind of distancing required would make exhibition's very different to what we have become accustomed to & would present a fresh set of challenges.
      We would have had to shortly commit a large amount of money towards the holding of the exhibition for hotel rooms & other expenses which we, unfortunately, could not guarantee to recoup under the present circumstances.
      We will however bring you the 2020 Exhibition virtually where we will have a selection of layouts, demonstrations & a showcase of our trader's product ranges on our website across the weekend of October 30th - November 1st, 2020.
      Please stay safe & well. We look forward to welcoming you in person to our 2021 exhibition which is to be held on November 6th and 7th 2021 at Springfields Events Centre.

      Padiham's 20th Annual Model Railway Event presents an enjoyable eclectic mix of live steam running, Japanese “N” Bullet Trains, stationary steam engines on compressed air, layouts from “G1” to “Z” gauge (subject to confirmation), two trade stand(s), children's Playmobil area and loads more for both families & model enthusiasts.
      Tasty homemade refreshments are available throughout the day in seated area in the main hall.  Three accessible exhibition rooms & toilets on one level.  Disabled visitors may need assistance with the car park access slope if accessible spaces are full.  
      The chapel car park tends to fill quickly, in which case there's more free parking at Clitheroe Street and Ightenhill Street car parks nearby.
      Saturday 7th November 2020 - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
      Admission - Adults £4.00, children £1.50

      CANCELLED.  It is with regret that we have had to cancel the 2020 Exhibtion, to be held by The Salvation Army in Wickford. We are grateful to the support of Members of Mid Essex MRC.

      The Committee has met, cogitated, and discussed our forthcoming show in November. Whilst we could manage,just, to put the show on, with a large proportion of our visitors being of a certain age and worried about visiting, we could suffer a large drop in numbers attending. Without numbers, the show would in all probability present us with a loss. I know all of you will be disappointed and some of you not surprised at its cancellation. 
      It was with a heavy heart that we decided that St Patcham 2020 will not take place. The decision has been taken now so that visiting layouts and traders can be advised well in advance, and we do not have to payout insurance and hall fees. 
      Next year's show, being in the year of the Club's 50th anniversary, will be an excellent opportunity to show ourselves to the outside world and rejoice the great hobby of railway modelling.
      With no show, we are considering the idea of holding a mini show on Club premises on the Sunday of that weekend 22nd hopefully using the station waiting room at London Road, showing our two exhibition layouts. Of course, we will be abiding by whatever anti-covid guidelines are current at the time, and with Southern's agreement! We are aiming to still having our annual sales day this year on Saturday 22nd August, again working within current anti-covid guidelines.
      Our 2020 Exhibition will be held on Sat 21st and Sun 22nd November our 42nd annual show.
      Open 1000 to 1700 on Saturday and 1000 to 1600 Sunday
      Patcham Community Centre Ladies Mile Road Patcham BN1 8TA
