    Very friendly coarse O gauge 3-rail group, no membership needed. Bring your own locos and stock to run, vintage or modern, clockwork or electric or just come to watch and chat with fellow enthusiasts. Home-made snacks, cakes, tea and coffee available. Fantastic location next to the mighty Harringworth viaduct.Car parking. Bi-monthly. NB this is not an exhibition as such, the accent is on running. There is usually a bring and buy table.

    An opportunity for running coarse O gauge electric and clockwork trains on 3-rail track and chatting with fellow-enthusiasts. Vintage as well as modern trains can be run so Hornby tinplate, Leeds, Bonds and vintage Bassett-Lowke often run. Revival tinplate such as Ace, Darstaed and Seven Mill also very welcome, we can also accommodate MTH and Atlas. Mostly models of steam trains but Diesel/electric welcome too. Informal group so as long as it's O gauge and has wheels it will be welcome. Two-rail running possible on 50” radius Atlas track. Fourtracks planned: (1) 27" (Atlas) & 36" radius (Merkur tinplate) and 50" radius (Atlas) (2) 27” Radius (Atlas)

    Even if you have no trains to bring, why not just come to enjoy these amazing trains running in a beautiful English village virtually underneath the eighty-two arch, 1.2 km Harringworth viaduct? A stunning location. A six-coach O gauge train measures about ten feet in length so they are amazing to watch. Close to the beautiful Rutland towns of Uppingham and Oakham. Our home-made cake is legendary, also freshly-prepared sandwiches and the usual drinks.

    Please bring any O gauge buildings, stations, signal boxes, water towers, bridges, signals & ancillaries or any other die-cast models which you would like to show.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT A MODEL RAILWAY EXHIBITION; THE ACCENT IS ON RUNNING TRAINS SO SCENERY ETC IS MINIMAL.

    PARKING FOR ABOUT 20 CARS IN THE VENUE's OWN CAR PARK.
    FULL DISABLED FACILITIES.

    Loose, informal theme for this meeting is vintage tinplate but our ‘themes’ are not proscriptive so if you have something you’re itching to run, please bring it even if it’s a pink Mongolian State Railways loco that runs on camel droppings!

    We usually meet every two months on the last Monday of each month with TWO exceptions - on Monday August 20th and our all-day event on Saturday October 13th. There is no meeting in December 2018.
