Open Day with NMRA - Sun 6 December 2015
Our end of year open Sunday event, in conjunction with the NMRA.
MRC layouts include:
- “PUTNAM” H0 gauge (New York Central)
- "LACEY DALE" N gauge (normally BR, but could be running US outline…);
- Four entries from the Club’s layout challenge
Plus guest layout "West Street Yard". This small HO scale switching layout depicts the outskirts of a city somewhere west of Chicago. The period represented can be anywhere between about 1950 and the present day depending on the stock and vehicles displayed, but is usually exhibited as mid 1960’s. Control is now usually DCC. You will see a variety of stock from various western roads.
Our multi-gauge TEST TRACKS will be available, to run N, 12mm, OO, HO, EM, P4 S and O gauges with DC or DCC control so please bring your own stock to run.
We will have a good selection of pre-owned models available from our shop.
And of course refreshments (including a selection of freshly made rolls and Greene King beers) are available.
Open from 11am to 4pm £3 adults, accompanied children under 18 free.
