OUR NEXT SHOW
TROON Sponsored by Kyle Model Railway Club
Formerly held in the Aucheharvie college between Ardrossan and Salcoats this show will now be relocated to Troon Town Hall.
We have been invited to show our FERNESS 'oo' layout based on the now gone for ever BANFF station. Decisions have not yet been made as to whether it will be running steam outline LNER locomotives and associated carriages or a depiction of the kind of stock which might have been running today to BANFF if the line had not closed.
CUMBERNAULD MRG OPEN DAY
Dates not yet known - probably late summer 2018
This is a very interesting quiet show opening for one day only (generally a Saturday in the LINK Centre Cumbernauld.
WE have promised to show our FERNESS layout which provides a nostalgic look at the old MacDuff station.
Sometimes we take the liberty of pretending the station survived into the 2000's and will run DMU's and even Voyager sets into its platforms. This will quite probably happen when we visit the Cumbernauld show.
The video clip (right) shows just this action as a shortened HST arrives.
This is our own sponsored exhibition and although a small show is a very friendly one where visitors have plenty time and space to see the exhibits and to talk to the operators and stall holders.
The illustration (right) was taken a long time ago in the very early stages of construction.
On completion it will feature an industrial area and an automated passenger shuttle service.
