    *** PLEASE NOTE***  - WE ARE MOVING ONE MONTH INTO APRIL!!!!!!
     
    Macclesfield Model Railway Group's 2024 Exhibition will be held over the weekend of:
     
    Saturday 20th APRIL and Sunday 21st APRIL 2024
     
    Further details of Exhibitors and Traders will appear here in due course, but for now, please make a note that we are moving the Exhibition one month to 20th and 21st APRIL 2024
     
    This is primarily down to Easter being early in 2024, but also to continue the long tradition of etiquette amongst Exhibition Managers and therefore trying not to hold our show on the same weekend as anyone else, we're moving from our usual end of March date, one calendar month to April.
     
    Cheers for now
     
    Andy
    Exhibition Manager

    • New Forest Model Railway Society - Brockenhurst, Hampshire - Exhibition
      By Robin Brasher,
         Enjoyed exhibition. I came by train and had lunch at the Foresters Arms. I enclose pictures of Pine Wood, Ipleigh Castle, Parts Unknown and Castle Bevan. 
       
      I was interested to see that the Hornby Terrier locomotives would run on 9" radius curves at Iplegh Castle. The Parts Unknown TT 120 layout was the second exhibition layout I have seen in that scale.




    • Mendip24
      By John P.,
         Quite easy and fairly straightforward to enter an event.
    • Hillingdon Railway Modellers - Test Track Open Day
      By Solderpete,
         A friendly get-together and good chance to run your models.
      The refreshments are pretty good too. 
    • Lincoln district model railway exhibition
      By Dagworth,
         A well presented local club show with around a dozen layouts in 2, 4 and 7mm scales. The O gauge layout was actually one of the smallest layouts present.
       
      Layouts were a mix of entertaining fiction through to well researched models of real places and places that had previously had railways but modelled as though those lines had survived the Beeching cull. A good mix of steam era and more modern diesel content too. One exhibit showed the true definition of a tail chaser, the train missing it's own tail by about 2 millimetres.
      I was there helping with a layout presented as a work in progress that got quite a lot on interest showing how a layout was built.
       
      A good social and meal on the Saturday evening in a local pub added to a great all-round weekend.
       
      The show was VERY busy both days!
       
      My thanks to the organising club and to @Clive Mortimore for letting me be his wingman for the weekend
