Trains4U open day 2012


Recommended Posts

  • RMweb Gold

I will be there with the N-gauge Thomas&Friends layout, using the Hornby Elite & RailMaster for all to have a play with

I need to see if Gareth has a little bit more space so I can take my box file layout as well for folks to see.


See you there!

Bachmann, Hornby and Gaugemaster will be there. Blue Pullman on display!

Runswick Leamside up and running and several layouts in operation from customers and local clubs.


I'm also expecting a few displays of things built using products from the shop, including a hand built working model of a fairground waltzer and a 1/12 scale articulated truck.


We have a charity raffle with a good selection of prizes and we've been assured of TWO live steam attractions outside! (Subject to availability of course)



I look forward to seeing some of you there on Sunday!

Me and the boys are getting ready to make the journey from sunny Macclesfield down to Peterborough this weekend.


I've spent all week in the shed, cleaning wheels of all the Leamside stock that is coming along with us. There will be 4 of the original Leamside crew there on Sunday, running the layout with a lot of the stock that used to run at exhibitions.


Anyone who has never been to Gareth's open day should make the effort and get down there. It's always a cracking and friendly day where you get to see exhibition layouts running, but its a lot more relaxed than an exhibition, so come on down.


See you there.

There are 12 (possibly 13 if Traction brings his boxfiles) layouts booked for tomorrow, plus we have a few static displays and demos.


Layouts include


Amberdale - BRM's Layout in a shed (OO)

Shopleigh (St. Neots MRC) (OO)

Runswick Leamside (OO)

2012 Bachmann Demonstration Layout (OO + N)

Gaugemaster Demo layout (N)

Thomas N Gauge


Plus a number of brand new N gauge layouts


We are anticipating the Nanking Blue blue pullman to be on display (possibly even running on Leamside for a bit!)


Please do come along, it's free to get in, plus we have a charity raffle with some great prizes, including a Graham Farish Train Set, Bachmann Loco, Javis scenics, Gaugemaster controller, Peco Starter Track set, Expo tools and others from Hornby.


See you Tomorrow


PS, we did move the date by a week - but it seems everyone else also moved to avoid all the clashes! (Expo EM, Steam, Showbus...)

Another thank you from me. As a local I know the shop well, but the 'extras' today were worth visiting for - plus of course the debut of the Bachmann Blue Pullman! Sometime ago I decided against one, but today I succumbed and duly ordered one, it's got the same wow factor as the NRM Deltic in my opinion. Now, about those items I must sell on Ebay....
