Society stand at Warley NEC, Help wanted Urgently.
Fellow Members
The Warley model railway show at the NEC on Nov 26 & 27 is probably the largest in the UK and this year the LNWR will be well represented by two superb layouts - 'London Road' and 'Clarendon'. The Society, at short notice, has been given display space so there is an opportunity to publicise the Society, sell some literature and recruit new members. Steve Johns will be manning our stand on both days but we need people to assist him.
Please put your name forward now - the good news is that four volunteers on both days get into the exhibition for FREE. Any assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated.
Steve Johns can be contacted at: steve9617@hotmail.co.uk or by phone on 07870789996 or contact me here today on 0191 4171003. Can also contact Webb Master via link below who will forward your reply.

Sat 02-Jul-2016 Modellers Event at Kenilworth

**** Photos from 2016 event ****
This event will be held at the Study Centre on Saturday 2nd July 2016. Come along and meet fellow modellers, discuss techniques of building models of locomotives, rolling stock, buildings, to name but a few, with different materials, painting them and indeed, all aspects of the hobby. There will also be models on display to provide even more inspiration!
This year there will be a demonstration of how to paint and line out a coach in LNWR livery by Paul from Stevenson Coaches. This is a rare opportunity to sit down with a professional painter and be shown this aspect of the hobby which many modellers find difficult. Paul will also have his range of 4mm LNWR coach kits and accessories with him and available for purchase on the day.
If you would like to do so, please feel free to bring along examples of your own work, finished or under construction, other members are bound to be interested. Perhaps you have a kit that has been sat on the shelf with a problem you can’t just solve, but another member may be able to help you with.
Test tracks in 00, EM, P4 and O gauge should be available on the day (and also in gauge 1 if a member attending works in this scale, could you please bring a couple of lengths of track along). Modellers of all gauges, disciplines and skill levels are all very welcome. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available, but please bring along your own lunch, or utilise the local facilities.
If you would like further information, please contact David Bond — e-mail
