Friday 17th - Sunday 19th June, The Model Event, Great Central Railway, LE12 8AG (this is the postcode for Quorn station where the main parking facility is, the station also features in a previous blog of ours!)
Admission: £18 (includes all day freedom of the line travel)
This is the third Model Event held at the Great Central Railway and it has already established itself as a firm favourite amongst the UK's top model shows.

The majority of layouts and traders (ourselves included) are housed in the large marquee at Quorn station. Over 60 layouts are set to be on display and more than 40 traders. There will also be layouts and displays at Loughborough and Rothley, mainly dedicated to the larger 'outdoor' scales.
Apart from the size and variety on offer another thing that makes the GCR show so attractive is the price, £18 for an adult ticket is only £2 more than it would cost on a normal running day at the railway, which makes it excellent value for money in my opinion.
This event is well worth a visit even if you are travelling from some distance, I hope you will join us there!

Also, a reminder we are at Statfold Barn Railway this Saturday (4th June) for their open day. More than a dozen locos are expected in steam and if you've got your re-booked invites then we hope to see you there too :)
As well as being at these events the shop remains open as usual Tuesday-Saturday 10AM-5PM (4 on Saturdays)
Hope to see you all soon, either at one of these events or the shop. Keep enjoying your modelling. Tony :)
