NMRS/NAGNAG Open Day Sunday 29th July 2018

Postby Newport_rod » Sat Dec 30, 2017 3:23 pm

Newport MRS in association with NAGNAG (the Newport and Gwent Neighbourhood Area Group of the Scalefour Society) are holding our third biennial* open day on on Sunday 4th March 2018 10:30 to 16:00 at Shaftesbury Community Centre in Evans Street, Newport, NP20 5LD

The open day isn’t meant to be an exhibition rather an opportunity to chat with fellow modellers and share a few experiences. The layouts won’t be operating as they would at a conventional exhibition giving visitors and club members alike a chance to swap tips and ideas. Hopefully visitors will have the opportunity to run one or two of their locos too - Finescale O gauge (31.2 mm, DCC), P4 (DCC) and N gauge (DC) are all covered.

Final details are yet to be confirmed but pencilled in are:
The format will be similar to previous events (see http://www.newportmrs.co.uk/2013-open-day and http://www.newportmrs.co.uk/2015-open-day).

Further information and up-to-date details can be found on the NMRS website at http://www.newportmrs.co.uk/2018-open-day

* It's three years since the last one but who's counting!

Update 20th February

    Richard Evans (of CamKits 4mm Cambrian Railways Transfers and Etched Kits) will no longer be able to attend as he will be promoting the modelling of Welsh railways in England with the Cardiff 4mm Group taking their superb Ynysybwl layout to Preston.

    The Admiral City of Newport Half Marathon will also take place in the City on the same day. From what we can tell that although the route passes close to our clubrooms the event should not impinge directly on the Open Day but there may be diversions in place and additional traffic could cause delays.

With the prospect of inclement weather over the next few days we had seriously considered the idea of cancelling the open day but having looked at the current forecast for the 24 - 48 h preceding the Open Day and the fact that we have distributed flyers and we don't want people turning up to a closed door we have decided to go ahead anyway although perhaps with a slightly lower key affair.

We'll keep this thread updated but if you'll like an update directly please email us on:

Due to the weather conditions we have decided to cancel the open day planned for 4th March.

We will look at alternative dates and post information here.

The accompanying hurricane will probably just blow the snow away...
