  3. On behalf of all associated with the Lincoln & District Model railway club i would like to personally thank all those that exhibited, helped behind the scenes and the paying guests for making a great weekend.... A special mention to the Tytton Hall Yard team hope all are well as they continued our exhibition precedence for having serious crashes en-route to the venue. Again many thanks......Nige
  4. Good eveing!! due to cancellation we have room for one oo gauge max lenght 30ft at the exhibition to be held in Newark over the weekend of 24th and 25th febuary... if interested please contact me... [email protected] or via the club website
  5. Peter you will be fine on the saturday......The Auto jumble is only on the sunday with peak traffic inbound from 9.30 to 11.30
  6. Greetings to one and all! A heads up on the travel for the sunday morning, As in 2017 the showground is hosting one of the autojumble sales which in 2017 combined with a road traffic accident on the A46/A1 junction caused some lengthy holdups for a while (Newark on a good day normally) However, the showground will do their level best to mitigate the effects at the planning stage. The autojumble organiser is reluctant to change the age-old traffic plan for fear of causing even more confusion. So we like many other events are advising you take instead of the A46 towards Lincoln, at the A46/A1/A17 roundabout, take the first exit down the A17 towards Sleaford then left along Drove Lane. Although slightly longer, it enables traffic to queue along Drove Lane before turning LEFT on to Blue Gate runway. The hold ups are caused by traffic coming off the A46 then turning RIGHT almost immediately on to the runway. It is further exacerbated by people stopping at the entrance to ask questions! And the stacking begins.... Alternativley use the train and arrive by the free heritage bus from both Newark North Gate and Castle stations and save a pound on the entrance fee......
  7. Couple of layout changes .....Unfortunately due to health issues with one of the operators Blackgang wont be appearing, Rise Park also as its booked to go to Nottingham exhibition.

  11. On behalf of the Lincoln & District Model Railway Club i would like to thank all those involved over the weekend ....Yes we had one or two...(OK quite a few!!) issues but a new venue who would not have.....the positives out way the negatives and with the feed back we have already we will aim to improve and hopefully get it better for next year.... I am assured the Burglar alarm will be fixed for next year too!!! Nige.....
  12. For those visitors travelling by car some route advise to avoid congestion on the SUNDAY on the A46 between Newark -A1-A17 junctions From the North and South heading along the A1, Come off at the Coddington turn off NOT the A46 turn off, head through Coddington to the A17 roundabout then follow the signs for the showground. From the west A46 maybe wise to travel through Newark itself and head towards Coddington/Beckingham joining the A17 as above Nige....
  13. First Bus departures are..... Newark North Gate 09:20 Newark Castle 09:35 Then same times past the hour upto 14:20/14.35 Return service leaves the showground at 10 past the hour, last service at 17:10
  14. The bus will be free of charge (donation more than welcome but not necessary) Details of the times and other important travel news will be posted shortly especially for those visiting on the sunday
  15. I will be requiring one of each ....west country...manc orange...tyne yellow...original stripy blue before the doors change please!! dont rush though got a holiday to pay for first!!!
