Yorkshire Wolds Railway Model Railway Show

Postby mikeknowles » Thu Feb 28, 2019 11:20 am

For those of you who are not familiar with the Yorkshire Wolds Railway it was set up just over ten years ago with the aim of re-opening part of the former Malton & Driffield Junction Railway. The group has its base at Fimber (across the road from the old station) and initially it is working to restore the line as far as Wetwang. A short section of line is currently working at the Fimber site but the next twelve months should see significant progress in advancing towards Wetwang.

As part of the fundraising scheme the Railway is hosting its second model railway exhibition at Wetwang Village Hall on Saturday 16th March from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. There will be ten layouts on display including my P4 layout Boston Frodsham plus various other exhibitors. Admission is just £2.00 for adults and £1.00 for children with all proceeds to the railway. So I hope you'll be able to come along, if you do please say hello.

Below is attached a poster for the show, if you can please feel free to download and display it to help publicise the event.
