  1. I have used Peco set track on a couple of NG layouts in past with no issues Terry
  2. NEW UPDATE Layout information now updated UPDATED 2nd November 2021 Stafford Railway Circle 2022 Exhibition 5th & 6th February 2022 BINGLEY Hall (New Larger Venue) Stafford County Showground Weston Road Stafford PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE LAYOUTS CAN BE FOUND ON OUR WEBSITE www.staffordrailwaycircle.org,uk/exhibition OPENING TIMES: SAT 10.00 - 5.00pm - SUN 10.00 - 4.30pm ADMISSION: Adults £12.00 Concessions £12.00 We have confirmed our date for 2022 which will be the usual first weekend in February at our normal venue of the County Showground in Stafford. Over the last 10 years or so of utilising the exhibition space at the Showground we have grown the exhibition from using just one of the three halls to the present situation of using all of them. We have been aware that growth in numbers attending has risen considerably, such that it is now time to move into the larger Bingley Hall. Our biggest ever show with 45 layouts and 35 traders presently booked with more to be added. Our usual demonstrators area and club stands will be present. We are conscious of needing to spread the gangways so that crowding can be alleviated and our extra space (Potentially 60 per cent more!) will enable us to do this. There is a restaurant within the hall situated on the gallery level with a lift available if needed. There could well be a bar as well but this is to be confirmed later. Much larger toilet facilities are available. There will be a free bus service from Stafford Railway station as in the past. Plenty of free parking as well.

  3. Yes possibly the worst services on the UK motorway network Visited once, never again Terry
  4. Yes after delving on different websites I eventually found the exhibition information. But I shouldn’t have too, it should be all here for all to see. I hope the exhibition goes well as it’s a good selection of layouts. Terry
  5. A good bump would be for someone from the organisational team to post here all the layouts and traders attending. Terry

  7. “why did it have to be on sale for a particular date” I would guess that Hornby had a booked a manufacturing slot over in China Terry
  8. I was shocked when I heard the sad news yesterday evening that Malcolm Scrimshaw had passed away yesterday morning. I had know Malcom for many years in my capacity as part of the exhibition team at Stafford. Malcolm being a regular visitor for the two days of our exhibition promoting the York Show He will be sadly missed by his fellow Hull MRC members as well as the York Show team and the whole model railway community. RIP Malcolm Terry
  9. I would agree that the M1 / A50 is the better route and the one I favour if I’m heading down south from Stone Nr Stafford Terry
  10. Many thanks Terry
  11. Please by any chance have pdf service sheet for the Bachmann 3MT Many thanks Terry

  13. A recent YouTube video produced by Peco gives a glimpse of product development on existing products and new products to be introduced in the future. One such new product will be a new design of a Loco Lift Definitely worth a watch…. Terry
