This year, the Bassetlaw Railway Society will be hold its annual model railway exhibition at Retford Town Hall over the weekend of 17th and 18th November. Despite a somewhat chaotic year, due to the society moving to smaller premises on Retford station, preparations for this year’s exhibition are now complete. The exhibition will feature at least 15 layouts including the return of last year’s favourite Lego City Trains, this has been enlarged yet again to provide even more room for teenage builder Ian Belton to demonstrate his skills in constructing working model trains made from Lego. At this rate, he could be a serious competitor to Network Rail one day.
Layouts will range in scale from Lego City Trains in G scale through O, 00, TT and the diminutive N scale. Trade support will be provided by companies supplying all manner of model railway accessories ranging from the newest products available to pre owned items. There will be demonstrations of wagon and coach building plus displays from the Gresley and BR Standard Societies. Refreshments will be available on both days.
The exhibition is open from 10.00am to 4.00pm on both days and admission charges remain at £4.00 for adults, £2.00 for children under 16 and £10.00 for a family group. Details can be found on the society website www.bnnrs.net, their Facebook page www.facebook.com/groups/bnnrs/ or by calling 07768 347456.
