Annual Exhibition 19th November 2016
This will be our 30th exhibition and the fifth time that we have put on a show at the Bassingbourn Village College [SG8 5NR], just north of Royston. As before, the show will be open from 10:30 am until 5 pm and we will set up directions/maps/signs.
An “Historic Bus” service will be in place from Royston town Bus & Train Stations during the day, for those that don’t want to make the trip by car. Departures from Royston Bus Station are at 10:03, 11:03, 12:03, 14:03 & 15:03; [from the Train Station North side car park approx 12 mins later]. Departures from the college are at 10:40, 11:40, 13:40, 14:40, 15:40 & 16:30. NB the 16:30 service does not return to college!
There will be no admission charge to the exhibition for accompanied children; The admission charge to the exhibition for adults is £5 [Sorry, but there will be no concessions].
We have invited the Royston Model Engineering Society to bring along their outdoor track and rolling stock to give rides (An additional charge will apply for those partaking of this activity).
The club normally meets every Friday, in the Town House, Church End, Barley SG8 8JW from 8.00 to 10.30 p.m.
Please check with Tony Clarke, [Tel: 01223 440399], or Barry Clements, [Tel: 01763 271031] if you want further information or confirmation that we are meeting, before coming along (as the Town House is sometimes used for other functions).
The club and members are involved in the building of model railway layouts in all the major scales for their own enjoyment and have exhibited their layouts at Model Railway Exhibitions all over the South East and East Anglia over the last fifteen years or so.
Whether you are an experienced modeller, just starting in the hobby / returning to the hobby after a period of absence , or you just need some advice, come along and have a cup of tea and a chat. No obligation to join the club.
We organise an exhibition in November to promote the hobby.
