National Model Engineering and Modelling Show 2020


From 8th to 10th May 2020, we will be attending the National Model Engineering and Modelling Show at Doncaster Racecourse.  

The main attraction there will be the our Exhibition Track called Ridings. Some of the scenic sections will be attached (steaming bay & engine shed, goods yard, colliery), and we will demonstrate slip-coach operation and shunting activities as well as live steam running throughout each day. There will also be a rolling road demonstration and the usual booklet and magazine sales.

The picture right shows a coal fired LNER A1 "Flying Scotsman" (before reclassification to Class A3) pulling an LNER Dynamometer Car and Coronation Coach set built by Golden Age Models.

Bakewell Agriculture and Business Centre, 
Haddon Road, Bakewell, Derbyshire DE45 1AH

The Yorkshire Group's end-to-end exhibition track, Moordale, can now be built to a range of lengths from 22 feet to 36 feet long. It can also be added as a terminus station to Dobson Bridge.  New buildings are currently being added, a signal box, road bridge and gang hut have been completed, and new station buildings have also now been completed. The station platforms have been increased in length to accommodate four passenger coaches with a run-around facility. We have completed the fitting of new electric point motors and signalling, and a new turntable  and engine shed section has also been completed.

but only if the NW Group are unable to

The G1 Yorkshire Group spent much of the winter in 2015-2016 building its new  Gauge 1 Exhibition track, which made its debut in May 2016 at Doncaster. We have received terrific financial sponsorship from a number of Gauge 1 Traders, including Golden Age Models, Cromford Designs, Walsall Model Industries, Keith Cousins, Vulcan Model Works, Peter Korzilius, RPM Models, Tenmille Products, Woodbury Models, The Gauge 1 Model Railway Company, Model Engineers Laser and Northern Finescale.  The track has been laid and tested and incorporates a four track scenic layout, which includes some fine detailed modelling including a colliery, a  goods yard, an engine shed/steaming bay, and a wharf scene and we hope to increase the size of the layout by perhaps adding Moordale as a branch extension.
