The Autumnal flagship event of the EM Gauge Society will take place as usual this year over the weekend of September 8th/9th at Partington Sports Village, Manchester. On display will be at least ten finescale layouts representing the best in 4mm scale modelling; plus we have great pleasure to include this year, a guest layout in the form of Martin Stringer’s 7mm scale ‘Tollesbury Quay’ (MRJ 246) making one of its rare exhibition appearances.  In addition there will be plenty of opportunity to stock up on modelling supplies with around 20 specialist traders in attendance, plus a wide variety of  ‘Show you how’ demonstrations and other special interest society stands. As usual there will also be the EMGS Trade Stand and the extremely popular Members’ Second Hand Sales.

SAT NAV – M31 4ES

 

By Public Transport – On the Saturday there will be the usual Free Vintage Routemaster Bus Service from and to Urmston Railway Station during the show opening hours.

Please check for updates via the EMGS website nearer the date of the event.

 

As an alternative, Partington is on bus route 255 (Stagecoach) between the village and Piccadilly Gardens (Manchester) and which runs via Urmston (Queens Road) where there is the main line railway station. The nearest bus stop in Partington (Methodist Church) is on the A6144 main road, just near to the junction with Chapel Lane.

I'm glad that I've been asked to do my weathering demo again.

Its a very good show even if I wasn't doing the demo I would still go one of the best in the northwest.

We are expecting to have two new kits on sale at Partington, the Horwich version of the Kitson 0-4-0ST (should be the same price, for now at least) and the Harland & Wolff 0-6-0DM. Production etches arrived today and everything else should be ready, no price for the HW yet though.
