"Calder Northern Group, are hosting one of their much enjoyed two day Themed Train Show events at Crewe Heritage Centre on the weekend of October 4th(Saturday)and 5th(Sunday) with the theme title of “Fallen Flags”.

There will also be a Saturday evening dinner at Crewe Arms Hotel.

To date we have 9 confirmed layouts plus 4 other layouts in the negotiation stages. Those confirmed are mainly HO scale but with 2 being On30 layouts.
There will be a bookseller and bring & buy tables. Calder Northern’s 2 layouts will also be operating in the North Junction Signal Box.

In addition to the Train Show the Heritage Centre attractions will be there for all to enjoy – 3 signal boxes, APT, Diesel and Steam locomotives and of course the miniature railway. We are also going to have the “be a driver for a fiver” again where you get the opportunity to drive (under guidance!) the Class 03 diesel shunter.

Hours of opening will be 10am till 4pm each day. There will be catering available and also drinks and light refreshments in North Junction Signal Box. Entry is £5 for adults, £2 for children.

For those wishing to come for the weekend then the rate for a room including bed & breakfast at Crewe Arms Hotel, (which is currently in the process of a complete refurbishment including installation of a lift, which will make things a lot easier) is £45 for a single room or £59.50 for either twin/double.

Premier Inns and Travelodge also have accommodation very close by and convenient to the railway station.For those wishing to make reservations for a room at Crewe Arms Hotel or for the Saturday evening meal would they please e-mail Terry Wynne at <T_WYNNE@sky.com> or telephone 01270 567050 and Terry will coordinate all bookings with the hotel to avoid any problems."

Updates:

Calder Northern Group’s two day Themed Train Show at Crewe Heritage Centre will be held on the weekend of October 4th(Saturday)and 5th(Sunday) with the theme title of “Fallen Flags”. There will also be a Saturday evening dinner at Crewe Arms Hotel for NMRA members and friends, traders and exhibitors.

We have 11 confirmed layouts plus Calder Northern’s layouts will also be operating in the North Junction Signal Box. Those layouts confirmed are mainly HO scale but there will also be On30; G scale and a British (GWR) N scale layout – after all that is also a fallen flag!

There will be a bookseller and for those of you who are familiar with ‘Anoraks Anonymous’ they will attend with their second-hand products sales stand. Bring & Buy tables @£5 per table will be available inside the APT or Exhibition Hall if space allows.

In addition to the Train Show, the Heritage Centre attractions will be there for all to enjoy – 3 full- size signal boxes, APT, Diesel and Steam locomotives and of course the extensive 7.25” miniature railway. We are also able to offer the “be a driver for a fiver” again, where you get the opportunity to drive (under guidance!) the Class 03 diesel loco.

There will also be a grand tombola with many prizes donated by model manufacturers and a Class 1 railroad! Hours of opening will be 10am till 4pm each day.

There will be a catering available plus the Tesco Supermarket eatery is next door. Drinks and light refreshments will be available each day in the North Junction Signal Box.

Entrance payment will be at the Pay-Hut as you enter the site but we ask all NMRA members to please sign the NMRA sheet in North Junction Box (club layout room) so we can see how many members attend. This October weekend is the scheduled CN members normal monthly meet date. Entry is £5 for all adults, £2 for children. We regret that NMRA and seniors concessions will not be available as it would pose too many problems for those on duty in the pay hut.

For those wishing to come for the weekend then the rate for a room including bed & breakfast at Crewe Arms Hotel, (which is currently in the process of finalising a complete refurbishment including installation of a lift) is £45 for a single room or £59.50 for either twin/double. Premier Inns and Travelodge also have accommodation very close by and are convenient to the railway station. For those wishing to make reservations for a room at Crewe Arms Hotel and/or for the Saturday evening meal (approx £15 per head) would they please e-mail Terry Wynne at <T_WYNNE@sky.com> or telephone 01270 567050 before September 14th and Terry will coordinate all bookings with the hotel to avoid any problems.
