Events on the weekend of July 7th & 8th

Saturday & Sunday – July 7th & 8th

This year’s Chasewater Railway’s Model Railway Exhibition is to be held on both days over the weekend – full details below.

Also to be held on both days, at Amerton Railway, is a charity event:

On 7th and 8th July 2012 the railway will be running in aid of a charity which Malcolm Garner supports for deaf children in the Gambia – The Gambia Deaf Children’s Support Project”. On these two days steam locomotives Isabel and Paddy will be in steam and the Hayfield Coach will be in use behind Paddy, visiting the railway to give special rides.

So, two events in two days, nice and easy – Chasewater Railway for the Model Exhibition one day, and a ride into the Staffordshire countryside to support the charity on the other.

Finally, if you feel like getting up early on Saturday 7th July,

Information from the South Staffordshire Railway website:

This site is well worth a visit, especially for Chasewater Railway members, as the Chasewater line used to meet the main line at Anglesey Sidings, and there are some good pictures on there when it was Charrington’s oil depot, and lots more besides.

Trent Valley Model Railway Society Model Railway Exhibition, Lichfield September 10th 2011

Trent Valley Model Railway Society

Model Railway Exhibition

LichfieldSeptember 10th 2011

Quite a few events were happening on this weekend and I did manage to visit two of them.  Firstly I made a flying visit to the Trent Valley Model Railway Society Model Railway Exhibition at the Wade Street Church Hall, Lichfield– I really couldn’t miss this one, the hall is where I first started school at Meredith House School, over sixty years ago. 

On entering the show, visitors were given a free booklet containing a plan of the layouts and lists of the exhibitors and traders.  A first class touch – I only wish that I could have stayed longer to make better use of it!  All the exhibitors had excellent layouts, whether big or of the smaller variety. 

Briefly, they were: Aylett End, Chalford,Deesdale Road, Highly Unlikely, Overkill, Thomas the Tank Engine, Waldkirsch and Z Line.  The traders were: 12 voltsdc, Derby Trees and Scenics, Keith’s Model Railway, Loughborough Model Centre, Sansome’s Model Railways, not to mention Wickson’s Travel.

Full use was made of the hall and it seemed to be building up to a very good attendance on the day, and well deserved.

 I shall have a collection of video clips linked to the blog in the next day or so.
