2018

HINWIL, near Zurich, Switzerland

BURGESS HILL, West Sussex
Saturday 1st September
Burgess Hill Model Railway Club are hosting a show at the Burgess Hill Girls School, Keymer Road, Burgess Hill, RH15 0EG. Various layouts, including Trix, and sales. Contact David Holmes for further details:- 01273 890191.

GAYDON, Warwickshire                See a video of the 2016 event here
Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd September (TTRCA event)
Museum & marquee GTG followed by evening dinner. Old Town Farm, Knightcote Road, Bishops Itchington, CV47 2SL.
To remind you of the show please take a look at the video that my daughter Amy made at the last event. If that doesn't spur you on to coming then ​please read on. 

The museum and show will be open from about 09.30 on Saturday 22nd until around about 6 pm and from about the same start time Sunday 23rd until an early close at 2pm.​ 

This year there are 10 working layouts running on Saturday and 8 on Sunday, 3 of which are from our friends in Europe. Including a UK Minitrix N gauge display and layout. There will be over 150 feet of sales tables with 13 traders offering all ages and quality and price range, including of course, the excellent TTRCA spares service from Martin and Penny Drayson.  Plus John Brown with the latest versions of red replica boxes and correctly printed labels. And from Holland, Stefan van de Poll will be bringing his international series of train set insert replicas, for all shapes and sizes both pre WW2 and post WW2.

Excellent food at subsidised prices is available all day both Saturday and Sunday at the rear of my house, by the museum, cooked by my daughter Jess, with her friend Naomi (she was helping at Middleton Cheney in March) in the kitchen. Sitting, under cover accommodation for diners is available close by.  

The evening dinner on Saturday night is a wonderful social get together at a traditional UK Pub where 60 people will sit and eat quality food in the company of like members from all over the world. This year I already have 52 reservations for the dinner out of an extended 60 places due to high demand.  2016 was 54 total and a few missed out. 

Dinner at The Merrie Lion (NOTE NEW VENUE) is from 19.00 on Saturday night.  www.merrielion.co.uk Nigel and Daphne at the "Lion" will do everything possible to make us welcome and it is possibly even easier to travel to the Lion from the show and museum than the previous pub. Parking is limited in the pub, but there is plenty of street space.

The venue is within 3 miles of junction 12 of the M40 by the village of Bishops Itchington and will be clearly signed from both obvious directions by familiar large yellow signs with the word TRIX and an arrow in blue showing the direction. CV47 2SL is the Satnav code and there will be a large TRIX sign at the entrance to the show. Well behaved dogs are welcome, as are small children.
