Hello everyone hope your are all keeping well.
We would like to inform all our friends and the wider community that we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel our 2021 exhibition on in light of the on-going coronavirus situation. Although this will undoubtedly be disappointing for all our visitors and exhibitors but we feel it is our responsibility to protect all of our members, traders, exhibitors and visitors.
We’re sorry to have to announce this and ask for your understanding.
On a more positive note we do have a PROVISIONAL booking for the 25th & 26th 2022 at The Matford Centre
We will be planing for 2022 along with being back in the club room again soon. We will post updates on Facebook and on here and ask that this post is shared as widely as possible to inform as many as possible.

Hello everyone that’s February all done and dusted a few more traders and a few layouts have now been confirmed for the show please see our Exhibition page for more information.
A while back we mentioned that things had been happening within the club well we are please to say that our new in house club layout is up and running with 4 separately controlled lines capable of running either DCC or Analogue control systems running on a two level system with sidings and passing loops to hold trains and carry out shunting, these will be fully operational in due course as our aim is to ensure smooth running and reliability first, once we are happy with the running we will start to look at what scenery will be appropriate for the layout.
Will aim to get some pictures up soon when I next visit the club.
