Just booked my ticket for this event on Saturday 20th June, 60 layouts, 40 traders, 10 demo layouts all spread across 4 stations on the Great central Railway. The ticket (£13) allows travel by steam between the stations all day, sounds a great day out and I wonder if any other members are planning to visit the event??

Cheers
Ron

Hi Ron,

Sounds excellent. The shows are one hing but the steam journeys would be the icing on the cake. I fly out to Cyprus on the 20th otherwise it could have been a great mini weekend away for me.

I hope you and anyone else that intends going have a great day and post a few photo's on your return.

Have a great time.

Toto

Sounds like a great event Ron - wish I could go.  Don't forget your camera. :thumbs

Where are you going in Cyprus Toto ?  We had a holiday house in North Cyprus before we moved to France. :roll:

I am returning to the UK this week and will find time to visit the GCR event. Last year I did not have time to take it all in but this year I plan to spend all day and visit all stations and their offerings. Will report on my return home

I can certainly recommend the event. As an ex chauffeur working for Brush at Loughborough I regularly attended Gt Cenral events and even managed a footplate ride on a black 5 (it was boxing day and freezing). I hired my 1920's replica van to Hornby on 1 occasion and was lucky to meet wildlife artist David Shepherd there as he was running his Black Prince. Right enough name dropping.... but it is definitely worth a visit.

Lucky you.My late Father in Law used to drive Black Prince for David Shepherd when he was stationed at Longmoor and was offered a job by him when he left the army but he didn't take it.Shame that i might have had some rides.

Black prince is still going strong on the North Norfolk railway where Weybourne is based but I fear my tight curves wouldn't cope with a 9F's wheelbase!!

Cheers
Ron

I've just got back from there as well,
but I wasn't sure if we were going!


Spent the morning on a canal boat, learning to 'drive' it.
Got to the GCR at 3, so didn't have as much time as I would
have liked. Saw pseudo 'Evening Star' and went behind her
sister for a run (Quorn - Rothey - Quorn).


Great show, with lots of good layouts and plenty to buy as well
(but I managed to keep my urges under control!).
