North West Group events - 1st and 8th April 2017

The North West group of the L&B will have a display / sales stand and a working model layout depicting Chelfham viaduct and station, at the following event:

Narrow Gauge Model Railway Show
All Saints Parish Hall and Rainford Village Hall
Rainford
Nr St Helens
Merseyside
WA11 8HE

The show occupies two halls, 200 yards apart, which open 10am to 4.30pm on 1 April.  It promises 20 layouts in various scales/gauges as well as 12 trade stands and society stands. Refreshments are available, and both halls are wheelchair-friendly. There is free parking around both halls.

Admission is £5 (under 15s free with an adult).

Bristol L&B member Paul Levy has kindly provided the NW group with a full range of his 009 L&B kits (as reviewed in L&B Magazine 111, plus some newly-introduced items), so these will be on sale at the show.  The profit margin on all sales of the kits at the show will go to the L&B.

N.B. This event is at RAINFORD, not the better-known (for railway enthusiasts) Rainhill, which is a few miles away!


A week later, the NW group will hold a meeting at the Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, Manchester M2 5NS, from 1400 – 1600.

The meeting will include pictures of various L&B projects as well as new pictures of the L&B’s twin railway in Australia, and (we hope) a live video Question and Answer session with L&B Company Director Keith Vingoe. A chance for members to hear first-hand about the current situation…
