West Midlands Area Support Group at Banbury MRC Exhibition

This latest report from Mike Whiteaker:


Regrettably we could not make this year's Autumn Gala but you’ll be glad to know that the West Midlands Area Support Group were working hard promoting the railway at the Banbury Model Railway Exhibition on Sunday 27th September.


Mike and Yvonne Whiteaker together with Michael Ordway took the L&BR stand to the Banbury and District Model Railway Club’s annual BanRail exhibition.

The exhibition was held in the Banbury Academy, and featured 11 layouts and a wide range of trade stands. With fine weather and rugby on the television, the show was not as busy as it might have been; nevertheless the stand attracted a steady flow of visitors.

With the submission of the planning application, the proposed purchase of the Old Station House Inn, the heritage carriages and the imminent completion of LYN, we had much to tell and show to the many interested visitors, who then left the stand with the clear impression that things are moving (and quickly) in North Devon.

We handed out plenty of membership forms!
