  1. Now let’s use this years flyer info and not last years , nobody spotted my deliberate mistake 🫣
  2. Only a week to go until the UK’s premier Diesel and Electric model railway show will be in full swing. On a side note unfortunately due to personal circumstances Ravenscroft is unable to attend, but we have an additional micro layout in its place. Many thanks to Alan Monk stepping in at the last minute and bring one of his layouts……….Reading Signal Works.
  3. A photo reminder of some of the layouts appearing in this years Showcase
  4. A little taster of some more excellent layouts to be seen at this year’s Showcase extravagansa, don’t forget this year there is even more room with the addition of another hall offering even more layouts and traders. Knype Bridge Ravenscroft Blueball Summit
  5. As per Micks post I completely forgot I had already posted Deadmans Lane in February………..so now I will give you another teaser. Gordons Lane by Greg Marshall who has produced a great reproduction of a South West trains mainline.
  6. Final details are currently being put together, we have had to make some changes due to some traders and layouts previously booked not now available.
  7. Another little teaser for you all, especially those who like “Yellow Machines” and we certainly know a few ………. Deadmans Lane, by Mick Bryan will certainly entertain those who have an interest in departmental stock as well as the trains both freight and passenger that regularly trundle up and down the main lines.
  8. Another little teaser for the forthcoming Showcase in June. Waddon Marsh is a real place on a loop line near Croydon in South London. The line was a freight line serving Croydon Power Station and the passenger service was limited to 2 car EMUs. Some stock passed the site on ECS and reversing moves but essentially Waddon Marsh was a bit of a back water by 3rd rail South London standards. Regular visitors to Showcsse will know that this layout has attended in the past, however this year you will be able to see it in an extended version. Owned and operated by SEDG.

  9. It’s that time to start to tease you all with some photos of the layouts that will be appearing this year at the UK’s premier show for “ modern image “ modellers. DEMU Showcase 2024 will be at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall on June 15/16th. This year the exhibition will be even bigger with addition of a 3rd hall at the venue bringing you even more layouts and specialist traders for you all to enjoy. More details to follow soon. The first layout to be announced is the wonderful replication of the Derby Railway Technical Centre (RTC) Deadmans Lane built by the well known modeller of everything “Yellow” Mick Bryan.

  10. The destination lights on my EMT version are not on, my model is a DCC sound fitted model. Is there a CV code for the destination lights? I cannot find one in the list of CV's included in the box. Any advice please.
  11. Harry and Andrea are a great couple, very helpful and always seem to have the kit and accessories you want (or even dont want! ). Been trying to get them to come to DEMU Showcase for years but it always clashes with their annual family holiday.
  12. Plus freight from China, cost of sale ( Hornby staff, warehousing, packing )
