URGENT: CALENDAR ERROR NEEDS CORRECTING

Can whoever compiles the forum Calendar please edit the entry for the DEFine Modellers Day as it is completely wrong day, date and times.

It should read Saturday 12th January opening at 10am.

Can you please do this with some urgency as the event is almost upon us,

Thanks

Alan, if you have any advice on the post code a PM would do rather than dig us up on an open forum. This is the post code we used last year and everybody found us. There are two postcodes given in directories for the building 3SS and 3SY. We were advised it was the latter. I have since made further ...

14.4mm dia wheels

Anyone know who stocks 14.4mm diameter P4 wheels suitable for diesel locos?
I know Ultrascale do but 8 months is a bit long to wait.
