Default Spaces Available For Miniatures

Exhibitor Update

Hi all. We are now nearing the stage where I am pinning down the final engines for Giant Miniature Weekend at Statfold Barn (May 12th/13th) and so naturally we're at the stage where the odd cancellation does come up.

At this stage I have around 5 engine spaces for miniatures free - if anyone is interested a warm welcome is assured

As some background information set-up is Thursday (Midday - 6pm) and Friday (7am - 10pm) so engines are welcomed during these times. We are expecting 100 miniature engines or more in 2" - 9" scales. As I say anyone interested even at this late stage is welcome to contact me and any questions are gladly answered. Do contact me either via TT or on sam.brandist@gmail.com to register interest. If there is any engine interest, spaces go first come first served

As for visitor tickets, they are going well and are available at www.statfoldbarnrailway.co.uk

Take care all, any interest welcome

Sam

Grin Ashley Steam Gallopers

Another new attraction for GMW...something a bit bigger and quite beautiful...we've just confirmed Jack Schofield's Ashley Steam Gallopers

They should look nice with "Repulse" and her Organ nearby
