Knutsford East on show

Postby Will L » Wed Mar 14, 2012 5:06 pm

Our next outing with Knutsford East will be at the Stockport show on the weekend og May 12th 13th 2012. See the clubs web site.

Because we have been let down by the cancellation of an invite to a large east of England show later in the year, this is likely to be the layouts only outing this year.

As I was taken a little by surprise the photo was taken against the light and this is the best I can do. Dick Petter receives the award.

Knutsford East on show July 14th/15th

Postby Will L » Sat Jul 07, 2012 12:23 pm

Knustford East will be exhibited at the Manchester Airport Transport Fair on Saturday and Sunday 14th and 15th July.

This event is run by the Aviation Society and takes place in the Concorde Hanger at the Manchester Airports Runway Visitor Park. While primarily aviation orientated, it does feature all forms of Transport, including, on this occasions, railways. I gather it is more trader than exhibitor orientated. The stands are set up under Concorde's wings so it should be an interesting venue.

While it may seem a slightly unusual place to show a P4 layout, and I doubt many of the visitors will get the subtlety, the man who asked us to attend did say all the right things about how the layout looked right from above. He should know as he was, I believe a police pilot. As we had lost our planed second show of the year when Spalding found that their sponsoring magazine wanted more layouts that had featured in their pages, we though that somebody who had observed correctly what we had tried so hard to achieve was worth going along with. And it could hardly be more local to us.

Having enjoyed the Concord tour in the past I can assure you that the venue itself is worth a visit.

It is at The Runway Visitor Park, Sunbank Lane, Altrincham. WA15 8XQ
Open from 10 till 6 Saturday and Sunday, I don't think public transport is an easy option.
The normal Runway Visitor Park's parking fees will apply, but you can save 50% by buying in advance. See their web site

Knutsford East - one last show

Postby Will L » Fri Sep 26, 2014 9:16 am

So Knutsford East is due one more outing, and it’s this week end at Scaleforum. In some ways it will be a sad occasion, but circumstances are what circumstances are. The advancing age of key elements of the exhibition team has a lot to do with it.

Anyway, the van is packed I gather, the stock is all cleaned and ready to roll, and most of us will be on our way after lunch. Personally I will be a little later this evening, as her who is not in doors has to finish work before we can leave Cheshire, so I hope the Fish and Chip supper isn’t to early Terry.

Tomorrow and Sunday we will be very happy to welcome all our old friends. While I’m sure we will all have a lot to talk about, we really must remember that there is a requirement to run trains. See you there. History suggest that I will be behind the Up fiddle yard.
