North of England Line (N gauge) and Lomond St (00 gauge) will be there from Scarborough & District Railway Modellers. I believe we're at Oxenhope Station.
Come and say hello if you plan to attend the show. We're looking forward to being there .

I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Thanks, Malc.
There aren't that many places where you can see N gauge pretty much alongside the 12" to the ft :)

Now I'm really confused?  10::00 till 5:00 on the Saturday ?  :confusedsign:
The adverts in the model railway magazines say the event runs from 10:00 till 4:30 on both days.
 The website seems to say it's 10:00 till 4:00

But it doesn't matter. As long as we're all there for 10:00 , we can sort out what time we're finishing on the day . 😊

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

The railway's website says 1000-1600 on both days
http://kwvr.co.uk/event/2017-model-railway-exhibition/2017-07-01/

I'll leave well before whatever the actual finishing time happens to be.
BTW the learning coach at Ingrow West, located in the goods bay, is an ex-LMS composite restored as a red breakdown coach http://www.cs.vintagecarriagestrust.org/se/CarriageInfo.asp?Ref=684

Your wish, good Sir...................................

I visited this morning mainly as I hadn't seen the 'North of England Line' for a couple of years or so, so I have no shame in  some new pics of the venerable layout















Despite being a bit 'long in the tooth' the layout does not look at all 'tired' and has some wonderful detailing so there's plenty to look at, such as little cameos like The Beatles using the zebra crossing in the town a la Abbey Road. It was the first outing for several months for N.o.E.l. so somehow I got the blame for some iffy coupling on goods trains and a point that played up. For anyone who has not seen it, you'd need to go a long way to find one of equivalent quality.

On a much smaller size, another N gauge layout was Lothersdale.......



and both layouts had unusual backdrops.............









The main crowdpuller in the Orribly Oversize section was the well known The Worlds End.........







A very good sausage sandwich to remove the pretty awful taste of machine coffee in the buffet carriage on Oxenhope station and I was on my return
