Broadland Model Railway Club Exhibition 2018
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:50:28 am »
Broadland Model railway club's 2018 Exhibition

The 2018 model railway exhibition sponsored by the Bure Valley Railway will be held again in the Jubilee Centre, Aylsham, NR11 6JG on Saturday 6th October. There will be models of different gauges and sizes that range from N gauge to 00 gauge with model steam and diesel traction as the theme.  Exhibitors usually come from the surrounding counties of East Anglia but we try and have layouts from further afield to add variety.

The exhibition owes much of its success to the catering support given by the volunteer ladies of Aylsham.   They do a magnificent job providing refreshments for the visitors and lunches for the exhibitors, traders & our volunteer helpers.

Due to building alterations at the Jubilee Centre the available exhibition space is reduced slightly.  However, we will be using the Bure Valley Railway station as a location for our railway groups and clubs along with some modelling.  This is still being developed so keep checking to see what is going where!  The good news is that we have secured the use of a vintage Routemaster bus to link the two sites together and this will be free to ticket holders.

The BMRC will offer a “Loco Doctor” service again this year as this was a success in 2017 with some generous comments.  In addition the DCC ‘doctor’ will be there giving good advice to potential DCC modellers either starting from new or thinking about conversion.  Lots of exciting things can be done these days from loco sounds to automatic train control.

Keep visiting the webpage to see our exhibition and trader list as it is developed.

The Club itself has two N gauge Layouts, an OO9 under construction.
There are current discussions on the next 00 layout which has to better than the previous one which didn't last long, as it was too unwieldly. Something more Norfolk broads related may be a possibility.

Also under rebuild / construction at the club house is a 0 gauge layout and another N belonging to members.
 Also it seems the rebuild of the club test track will include an EM circuit as several members have EM as well (including me)

Due to our exhibition Venue being rebuilt our own layouts may take a holiday from the show this year.
