Many of your Hobby Shops, Suppliers and Manufacturers are STILL OPEN.

During these interesting times when we are all advised to Stay at Home what a great times to catch up on all those outstanding modelling projects.
With my interest being in American Narrow Gauge over the years I have accumulated many kits. So last week I made a start on them and have just completed a Pagosa Springs Combine #215, followed by at last putting the decals on a couple of brass passenger cars. Next on the list are a Jordan Spreader and a 3 way coupler car. So let's get modelling.
And if your short of bits an pieces or even whole kits remember there are still a lot of retailers and manufacturers out there who are still open and doing mail order.
So in these interesting times support your hobby and keep on modelling.
Best regards,

Exhibitions, Open Days and Swapmeets

Given the current National and International situation, together with the number of notifications of cancellations I have received over the last few days, I think it is reasonable to assume that all Exhibitions, Open Days and Swapmeets have now been cancelled or postponed for the rest of March and April.
I know I have not received notification of this from all organisers but I think this is a safe assumption.
Therefore if you are planning to visit an event that is still listed I strongly recommend that you try and contact the organisers first before travelling.
All the best to everyone and I hope you and your families keep healthy during this situation.

How to Report a Change of Circumstances with your Event

With the current International situation could Event Organisers please be aware that I am able to update entries very quickly as long as you follow the process below.

With every event submission you will have been sent an acknowledgement email. In that email there is a section entitled **HOW TO AMEND YOUR EVENT**. All you need to do to change the details or report a cancellation is read and use the info in that email.

Using the above process, which is automated, the event entry can be updated within a matter of hours. If you send me an email I will complete your request BUT I may not read that until the following day, then I have to search for your event, then I have to manually update it.

Back on track: why slot cars and model railways could make a come-back

"With the Government restricting most workers and all over-70s to stay at home for the foreseeable future in order to combat the spread of Coronavirus, millions of people suddenly have rather a lot of time on their hands. Traditional hobbies such as slot car racing and model railways have seen a surge in interest."
Telegraph Online 1st April 2020.
And no it wasn't an April Fool.


As we hope you can appreciate we cannot visit every Shop and Supplier in the country. So your help and assistance is always greatly appreciated.
Alas, sometimes shops do close and we are invariably not informed, so it is always best to ring ahead if you are planning to make a special journey. If you do find a shop listed that is closed, please let us know to help others.
You can submit information on the forms that are on the following pages of the website;
Events, Clubs, Layouts, Information and a General Enquiries form for everything else.
Also, if you know of any Supplier or Retailer that isn't listed, why not let us know. Fellow modellers will surely benefit.
