In addition to the three previously mentioned Hessle MRG layouts we are now pleased to confirm the following additional seven visiting ones.

 

Filey, Bridlington Model Railway Society. OO gauge portrayal of the station between Bridlington & Scarborough in the 1950s/60s.

 

Betton Street, Richard Hayden. OO gauge. Based on the loco servicing and Network Rail maintenance depot at Shrewsbury in 2000-2010.

 

Fox Valley Railway, Jason Johnson. N gauge western region terminus station set in 1960s/70s.

 

Hollym Gate, Brian Sunman. OO gauge based on the station on the former Hull to Withernsea line in the period 1950/60.

 

Chester Road, Bob Denton. OO gauge North Eastern/ Midland region servicing and fuelling depot in the mid 1960s.

 

Dolwyn, Dave Holmes. 009 gauge. Based on part of the Glyn Valley Railway in North Wales in 1930.

 

Box File Layout, Steve Grantham. OO gauge. Somewhere in England in the 1990s showing what can be achieved with a few box files and a lot of imagination!

 

In addition we can also confirm the following trade support.

 

Caistor Loco, general supplies of locos, rolling stock, scenic items etc.

 

Custom Layout Signs. Laser cut layout nameboards and replicas of loco headboards etc.

 

4 2 2 Modelmaking. Resin cast building and coach kits.

 

Spotters Collectables. Railway books and memorabilia.

 

Also there will be some second hand items on sale.

 

Finally don't forget there are light refreshments available for sale with plenty of home made cakes and pastries.

 

All this for just £2.00 admission (accompanied children free). It's got to beat even Aldi for value for money!

 

Hope to see you there.

In preparation for the exhibition we hired one of the large rooms at the town hall last Sunday so we could fully set up all three of the club layouts and give them a good test.

To hopefully whet your appetities further here are some photos.

Firstly Invermire

Also please note that as far as I am aware none of the layouts at the show will feature erupting volcanos, landslides or dinosaurs etc!

Yes, hopefully for serious modellers rather than the daft Channel 5 show. Looking forward to the n gauge layouts. Hope I can ask a few questions though? Help often needed.

Look forward to meeting you. Please ask as many questions as you like. You may even get the odd sensible answer!

Thanks to Hessle club for the invite. I had an excellent day and the layout seemed to be popular.

 

Hope it was the success it deserved to be.

Cheers Steve.

On behalf of Hessle MRG I'd like to offer our sincere thanks to all the exhibitors and traders who turned out to support us.

Also to the people who visited the show, in numbers far greater than we had hoped, particularly given the weather conditions early in the day. 

The day was a great success which everyone appeared to enjoy immensly. 

Thank you all again.
