  7. Really good show with excellent trade support, but only gripe was for first two hours on the Saturday, the catering kitchen was closed and not open to noon. To be honest the amount you have to pay to hire the place, they should open the catering area from 10am. Even bar staff when I asked them if any food was available, said no and only spotted a public cafe near the entrance when leaving.

  14. I am going to present a report to a Steam Heritage line and would love the following input from railway modelers, of which I am one. I would like to know the answer to the following questions, as many heritage lines, local steam railways has paid staff and volunteers. You may have a few steam railways within an easy drive of some of you on here. The question is how come you don't volunteer or want to volunteer on them. Is your passion, model railways and recreating an era or actual steam & modern locos. I found this in flying as a pilot, lots of plane spotters love aircraft but never thought about having a go flying one. If you as model railway fans, had the chance to work on real engines, track, signals and infrastructure as a hobby, would you? and could you? Of course some may volunteer already, it is RM's who don't I am interesting in getting feedback from Also how many of you have ever actually driven a steam or diesel locomotive, and if not why not and do you have the desire to do so. Would any of you ever consider a working holiday on a heritage railway where a new skill can be taught or a skill you have could be used. Of course every steam railway has its steam buffs and photographers, but again many of these don't actually want to get their hands dirty or be part of the actual operation of a railway. Could it be a age thing, ie lots of jobs particular to engineering and line infrastructure do require a bit of agility and fitness. I know these seem odd questions to ask but there is a valid reason and ways to attract more volunteers to real steam railways.
  15. The lovely Shannon who usually runs the admission area at our shows and who many of our regular exhibitors know has a model photoshoot this Sunday for a teen magazine so she cant help us. So we seek someone from 9.30am to 2.30pm who is based near to Sevenoaks or can get there with ease, to be the second person running the entry desk. You will get £50 which we ask that you give us a invoice for on the day plus you get lunch and of course free entry after your shift to enjoy the show. Must be over 18 and friendly and able to deal with cash. Please text me on 07946 904208 if interested and can make this Sunday.
  16. We have another trader join us today, MODELUX of Guildford make bespoke N and 00 Kit buildings
  17. Just added two extra layouts Rixtimmin and Kingsnorth both N gauge plus an extra trader Sudbury Models who doesn't usually come this far south and will be their debut show with us. Remember pre book discounted tickets are available until midnight on the Sat before the show and gets yyou in 15 mins before official opening time see .www.modelrailwayexhibition.com
  18. I will answer that question after the show when I count the number of traders asking for a receipt for their liquid lunch for business expenses lol I know the Batcombe lot like a drink, my advice for a laugh come about 3pm and see some avoidable train crashes on that layout
  19. Updated the layout attendee list to include the N Gauge Rixtimmin. Good train service into Sevenoaks and Bat & Ball that day, so think about leaving car at home as the real ales on offer are: Summer Pearle from Westerham 3.8% Route 53 from Headcorn, half French and half Kent hops and a gorgeous red ale Spirit of Kent from Westerham 4% Coffn'Toff Porter 5.8% Gluten free IPA alco free Wheat Beer and also free lager One Tree Hill Real cider 5% made from local Lewisham apples collected from gardens and a hit at all festivals trains from London Bridge, Orpington, Charing Cross, Ramsgate, Beckenham, Catford, and Ashford and Hastings and stations inbetween Bat and Ball is slightly nearer then Sevenoaks BR although the latter is a easy straight walk about 950 yards and Bat and Ball 800 yards. Phillip Ford will also have a small selection of commissioned wagons fro sale along with of course The Wagon Yard who have an amazing selection of new wagons not yet seen on the exhibition trade circuit. Also the Soutwark MRC pre owned stand always has lots of good stuff, little tip if you ask for Ray who may be running the stall when not operating the clubs layout and use the code 'I am a friend of Dorothy' you might get a discount.
  20. Weds 3rd July at The Ale Bar, 443 New Cross Road, New Cross, London, SE14 6TA starts 6.30pm (2 mins from new cross BR and on bus routes 53, 453 and 177) all welcome and now a proven popular monthly event. Selection of real ales and normal pub prices. There is a 009 and N gauge layout built into the bar area.
  21. We have space for a 10/12ft layout due to a cancellation at this years Sevenoaks show on Sunday 7th July. This is a well attended show with 18/20 layouts and 16 trade stands plus a real ale and cider bar. If interested can you email [email protected] we would love if you are new to exhibiting and this is your first, we of course will accept smaller layouts
  22. totally agree but that is only good if you have off street parking as cant keep a trailer on a public road unless attached to a motor car or van
  23. Not sure if this is the right place, but we are sellinng our exhibition layout van, which held three layouts at once, been converted in rear to shelves and been a great work horse for last 4 years. We are looking £400 and good points although high mileage it onlt has done about 600 to 1000 miles each year for past 4 years and had a new clutch two years ago. Bad points is MOT expired this month, rear loading door only locks from inside and exhurst although not blowing will need work. Starts first time and cheap to run, I think we pay £320 insurance a year and good mileage return. External could do with removing tape marks from posters we put up on it advertising exhibitions we were at. At one stage we had a second shelve above giving even more storage space and easy to add the third shelf. We also have the side panel area which we used to carry our tables and athough you cant see it, there is a big running stock storage area to the front. Works out lots cheaper then hiring a van each weekend and I think you will need to spend a couple of hunred to get through MOT or know about exhusts welding. We have put it up on autotrader for more then this, but nice if it went to a model rail exhibitor as that what it has been used for. It is in SE London/Kent. email me at [email protected] or call 07946 904208
  24. We have a cancelled layout so have space for a layout around 10ft to 12ft, if you'd like to attend please call me on 07946 904208
