Hi Guys & Girls


If anyone on here reads the local papers The Express & Star and The Chronicle (At least the Dudley edition), please note there was an editorial error in their advert for our show. While the advert reads that our show is this Sunday, that is not the case, and it is, and always has been planned to be, this Saturday, 22nd October.


Gotta love a good gremlin...

Just finished loading up "Steam on the Cambrian"  ready to go!
Looking forward to appearing as an exhibitor at my "Home" show!

If you are visiting you'll find me stuck up a corner somewhere in Hall 1 !  Stop by and say Hello.

Another great smaller exhibition put on by the Cradley Heath MRC with a very good selection of NG layouts in both 009 & 0.16.5 to compliment the the 0 & 00 offerings


Well done lads
