Modeller’s Mecca

As both regular readers know, the Grand Opening Gala for the Apedale Valley Light Railway will be on the 18th & 19th September. Amongst other attractions, we’re planning a record number of model railway layouts this year.

These will be in a variety of scales from the delights of Hull Miniature Railway Society’s ‘Barrowfleet’ (009 and 00) and Hazel Grove MRC’s penultimate outing of “The High Peak Tramway” (O16.5) right up to ‘Hookers Junction’ in 1/12th scale. The photos, courtesy of Hazel Grove MRC and Paul Harrison, show the High Peak Tramway. Rumour has it that the CME can be seen pointing at something in one of the scenes.
This is the perfect opportunity for narrow gauge modellers of any scale to get ‘up close and personal’ with camera and tape measure to a considerable range of locomotives and is not to be missed.
Further announcements will be made, so keep watching the press and here for more details of what will be one of the Narrow Gauge “events of the year”. The ‘how to find us’ button on our website provides maps and useful sets of directions. As ever, get in touch here.
