  1. Set up going well despite some leaks in the building's roof due to the recent torrential rain.
  2. Weather looking fine and dry for the weekend so (hopefully) we won't have last year's parking problems! Something about visitors disappearing into the mud, never to be seen again Mal
  3. I will be there, enjoying the Exhibition and (maybe sometimes!) looking after the York Show display stand. Mal
  4. The York Show stand will be at Preston this weekend (2nd & 3rd March). Advance tickets will be on sale. Saves "fiddling" about with postage. Mal
  5. Last remaining traders and layouts have arrived so nearly ready to go. Should be a good day despite the local showers.
  6. Good news for car drivers on Saturday. The car boot sale is not taking place this year so cars can be parked on the firm Racecourse area (just beyond the Knavesmire Stand) instead of the Knavesmire field - mire often being the operative word. It's a shorter walk too!
  7. Last night's mania of trying to sort everything out at the clubrooms is over - phew! All we have to do now is get all the gear moved to the Show venue and set up
  8. Wish it was 2ft shorter as my original information. Mal - overworked planning department
  9. Just checked the paperwork and it definitely quotes New York 1960-1975, but duly noted and will amend my info. Mal
  10. Sorry - 55 weeks between 2016 and 2017 is correct - my sums teacher would be horrified. But definitely only 50 weeks to the 2018 Show
  11. 53 weeks surely. But only another 50 weeks to 2018 Show
  12. Last visit of Gresley Beat to the north of England before it is retired. If you haven't seen it yet or wish to admire it once again York Show is your chance.

    Derek Naylor

    Passed away last Friday. My condolences to his family and many long time friends. Derek was a regular visitor and contributor to many exhibitions, most notably Narrow Gauge North and York amongst others. A true gentleman who was one of the older scratchbulding generation. It was always worth stopping for a chat with him as he had a wealth of knowledge all the way back to his well known Aire Valley articles in the RM from the 1960s. RIP Derek Mal
  14. Tower Models is now dealing exclusively in larger scale models, 0 gauge upwards and declined the invitation to this year's Show. Caistor Loco has taken over his slot as general merchandiser and "box shifter".
