This forthcoming weekend – the 7th & 8th September 2019, winkle’s Yard will be appearing at the Bure Valley Railway’s STEAM IN MINIATURE weekend.
Alongside their home fleet of 15” locomotives they will have a selection of smaller scale models in action and on display. A special intensive timetable will be in operation throughout the weekend to allow visitors the opportunity to see as many different locomotives as possible hard at work over the nine miles between Aylsham and Wroxham.
The weekend will also feature:
Wroxham Signal Box Trust Great Yarmouth Model Railway Club A range of live miniature steam engines 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers
and more…. I guess I’m in the more section!
While Winkle’s Yard generally features the BR Blue era of the 70s and 80s, I shall try to take Winkle’s Yard back in time with some green diesels and steamies…..assuming they run OK!
There are lots of uncertainties at the moment, but one things is secure and that is the Modelling Group of which I am a part.
Consisting of Kelvin Barnes, John Barnes, Graham Minshull, me (Shaun Harvey) and our ever faithful supporter Audrey Barnes, we make up the newly named Norfolk Railway Modelling Syndicate.
We are not interested in becoming a club but we do operate by consensus and support. We all have different means and backgrounds but we come together with a common desire to produce and exhibit high quality model railway layouts and items of rolling stock. We also aim to encourage and support other people who are already modelling or new to the hobby.
Kelvin Barnes retains responsibility for the booking of our layouts and we should have something to appeal to all tastes as we have a large number of exciting layouts available as well as other major layouts in the works for the months ahead.
If you want us to attend your exhibition please contact Kelvin on his blog:
Winkle’s Yard, my OO gauge layout, appeared at this years Model Railway exhibition at Bressingham Steam Museum. It was great to have Winkle’s Yard out at this show and there was some great feedback from those who came to see the layout.
The light wasn’t great but my fish tank lights helped people to see all the detail.
