NMRA BR On The Road

  • Print

The NMRA British Region  On the Road.

We are attending a number of shows with NMRA Displays.  You are all invited to come and see for yourself what the NMRA is all about.

Our main theme is to 'share knowhow'. The sharing of the hobby, the exchanging of ideas, techniques, operating trains together is the main strength that you will not get from the internet. 

Any members are invited to help out as volunteers to man our stand, help set up, talk to the public and show what we do.

There's a list of what we are doing in this month, and the near future, which have been confirmed. Others will follow once confirmation is received.

March 12/13  Nottingham Model Railway Exhibition

The stand is being organised bij Steve Dennison of the Black Diamonds group. Anny offers of help to him please.

March 19/20  The London Festival of Railway Modelling, Alexandra Palace.


'Ally Pally' is the big London based event. There is much model railway interest. We meet and greet many existing members, as well as creating interest from potential members, visitors. We have a 12ft x 6ft stand allocated to us. We are on stand 59-60.  Ant Quinlan is there with his BNSF Horsethief Bridgelayout, but in a different aisle to our stand.

We already have some limited offers of help, but can any others offer help on either or both days please? Mike Hughes would like help in thaking the stand after the show.

He has arranged fro someone to get the stand to the show. In case you're wondering it consists of the display boards inside a carrying case plus a large (64L Really Useful) box and one or two pull up roller posters. At a push he can take the roller posters but is totally unable to take the other items. Anny offers of help please? Contact Mike Hughes

March 26-28 York Model Railway Show, York Racecourse

Chris Hobbs is the main contact for all help. He has suppoer from a couple of members, but would still like to heard from more members able to help out at all ove rthe three days of the Easter weekend.
