Colne Exhibition November 2017

Coming up on November 18th & 19th is Our own Pendle Forest MRS exhibition at Park high School, Venables avenue Colne BB8 7DP.
The exhibition is open from 10am to 5pm Saturday, 10am to 4pm Sunday and there is full disabled access to the show. Admission is £5.00 adults, £3.00 children, £4.00 concessions and £14.00 families (2+2)

Top of the bill is the Society’s layout ‘Earby’ which recaptures the look of the station and the surrounding area as it was in the 1960’s. Never slow to latch on to modern technology, Society members have created most of the buildings using 3D printing and the result is very impressive.

An unusual item of possible historical significance is ‘Rock n Rail’ a model of an early railway based on artifacts discovered in a dig on a local allotment. Whilst the dating of the items found has yet to be determined it would seems possible that railways might well have been around a few millennia before the currently accepted historical dates of the early 1800’s! We hope you enjoy the societies latest layout.

At the exhibition will be many other layouts in a range of different scales and gauges, modellers from Creil, France will be there with a modeling workshop, there will be a demonstration of weathering techniques and children will have the chance to drive a train themselves.

Alongside the models there will be a range of traders selling everything from train sets to kits and detailing parts plus there will be full catering available throughout the event.

Oldswick TMD OO – a modern locomotive maintenance depot.
