    An all-day opportunity for running coarse O gauge electric and clockwork trains on 3-rail track and chatting with virtually undfellow-enthusiasts. Vintage as well as modern trains can be run so Hornby tinplate, Leeds, Bonds and even Bassett-Lowke sometimes 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. Four tracks 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. A six-coach O gauge train measures about ten feet in length so they are amazing to watch. Close to the Nene Valley Railway. 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.
