Just a word of warning:

 

According to the ELR website, their next running day is Sat 09 Nov, so anyone hoping to catch a train up to the exhibition from Bury might be in for a long cold wait.

 

Richard, where have you seen this? I have just checked the ELRs website which says the next service will be Saturday 2nd November using the blue timetable?

 

ELR have also posted the loco roster for this weekend for Saturday & Sunday:

Steam - 34092 City of Wells

Steam - 52322

Diesel - 104 &122 DMU

 

Also to note is that on Saturday 50015 should be out on a driver experience (not for public use) and in the evening 33109 & 47765 should be top & tailing the ghost train (special tickets required).

 

(note all the above information is provided in good fair from both the ELR Website & the ELR Diesel group website).

Right! I have just spoken to a lovely lady at the ELR who has confirmed they are DEFINITELY running this weekend (obviously subject to the usual caveats). Apparently they had a glitch with the website last week where some dates were not showing properly so this could be something to do with that. But just to re-iterate they are running both days this weekend!

 

I’m personally really looking forward to this weekend operating Russel St and talking to folk. Just a shame I’ll not get a spin to Bury and back!!

 

Regards,

 

Al.

Richard, where have you seen this?

When I checked on the ELR website this morning, the first service in Nov was 09, as confirmed  by Ryde-on-Time.

 

It's now been updated, so possibly someone had already contacted the ELR about this.

 

I wasn't trying to scaremonger, but on the info available at the time was trying to save some visitors a wasted trip.

Not  a problem Richard, I just wanted to make sure we'd covered all basis and there wasn't some miss information out there! Assuming you're coming I hope you enjoy the show.

Yes there's three of us coming up on Sunday from Telford.

 

I had a good chat about it at the Dapol open day in September and have had it in the diary ever since.

We have now confirmed the use of a vintage bus for the weekend to operate a free shuttle service from the ELR Rawtenstall station to our venue. Below outlines the timetable we will operate which coincides with the ELR arrivals.

All being well this is the bus you'll be looking for:

Unfortunately, an act of vandalism has occured today which means the free bus service will not be running all day tomorrow (Sunday)

Thank you for posting this last night.

 

As stated above due to an act of vandalism earlier today our free bus shuttle operating from the East Lancashire Railway **will not** be operating for the entire timetable tomorrow.

If you've made plans to travel via the shuttle please make alternative arrangements to attend the exhibition.

Wonderful photos of what look to be great models. My own transition to O is motivated by my attraction to the enormous sense of presence that comes just from the larger scale. Those photos illustrate it beautlfully.

 

The US scene is especially impressive to me -- like many others I suffer from locoholism, and thst scene is so evocative to me precisely because of its loco-minimalism. I have in mind a small country junction (County School is the inspiration, for anyone interested in tiny prototypes) which would make it impossible for the scene to be dominated by giant locos.

 

It looks to have been a great show.
