February 2017:

Once again we were very pleased to have Les Nixon, the well known railway photographer, judge our annual photographic competition. Despite the large number of entries, Les was able to offer helpful, positive comments on each photograph before selecting the four category winners. from these the members present selected an overall winner.

April 2017:

The 2017 Model Railway Exhibition was held on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd April. There 15 high quality layouts, a wide variety of trade stands, audio visual presentations, and a display, including live steamings, by the Sutton Coldfield Model Engineers.
Society activities were reflected in a display of photographic competition entries, and the continuous showing of a newly commissioned and professionally produced, high definition DVD of a year in the life of the Society.
The 2018 Exhibition will be held on the 28th and 29th April 2018. As more details become available they will be shown on the web page marked ‘Exhibition’.

Looking Ahead:

In June 2017, there will be a three day trip to the North West of England. This will include visits to the East and West Lancashire Railways, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, and the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Railway. Additionally, the inclusion of a cruise on Lake Windermere means that this should be an action packed weekend!
One day trips have also been arranged to the Welshpool and Llanfair Railway in July, and to the East Somerset and Avon Valley Railways in August. The August trip will include Sunday Lunch on the ‘Mendip Belle’ dining train.
As is the case every year, there will be a Saturday afternoon visit to the home of the Sutton Coldfield Model Engineers in August, and again as is usual, there will be a Ladies Evening in the run up to Christmas.
