York Model Railway Show - Easter 2016

Recommended Posts

The advance ticket office for the 2016 York Model Railway Show is now open.  PayPal option for payment is, hopefully, up and running! The normal pdf form to download is still there however.

 

Details of layouts etc will appear on the York Show website as they are confirmed. http://www.yorkshow.org.uk

 

Look forward to seeing you there

The details of confirmed layouts is now on the website and the list of traders will be up later.  For the first time this year it is possible to purchase advance tickets using PayPal which should save to a bit of hassle; and is running OK. 

 

Looking forward to seeing RMwebbers at the Show

The Paypal option is a useful addition,works well. Just about the fastest I've ever paid for tickets I think.

Just a reminder that the York Show advance ticket office closes on the 17th March 2016.  That is the last date for me to receive your request/order for tickets, not the last day for posting to me! ​The PayPal option will available until the evening on the Thursday but will then be shut down. Look forward to receiving your orders for tickets and seeing you at York over Easter.

I will be at the Preston Exhibition this weekend with a supply of advance tickets. Seek me out on the Driffield layout (stand 34) if you wish to purchase one (or more) for the Easter extravaganza.

I could not see Tower Models listed.

And not listed on Tower site either :stinker:

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".

Which means the up and coming new scale/gauge will not be well served at this exhibition anymore. We'll have to wait for Doncaster.

What new scale/gauge?  The only newish one that I know of is 09.

I presume O gauge referring to Tower models withdrawal and the Gauge O Guild Summer Show being at Doncaster...

Not that it is correct given the number of specialists at York, and a bit unfair to criticise the show given that Tower WERE invited but declined...

Again a reminder that the last date for me to receive requests for advance tickets is Thursday 17th March. Which means if you are sending the request by 2nd class post it should be posted no later than Tuesday 15th March, ​By 1st class post Wednesday 16th March.

 

The PayPal option will close at approximately 5.00pm on Thursday 17th March.

Further to earlier update re the bus the travel page has been updated. The options are Service 197 Saturday (Similar to last year) or the public service route 11 (Sun & Mon). The latter a much reduced service with a less convenient return route. Full details of the changes now on-line at http://www.yorkshow.org.uk/howget.htm#linkbus

 

We trust you will appreciate that these changes for this year's show are outside our control as the bus company operate the racecourse event bus link service as a commercial operator.

The final day for posting ticket applications is tomorrow, Wednesday 16th March, and would suggest if you have left it this late that you use first class post.  PayPal will continue to operate until early Thursday evening.

 

Tickets will only then be available from 10.00am on Saturday 26th March at the normal price.  Please note that currently we can only take cash at the door.
