Strange Brew?

Burton on Trent is synonymous with the brewing industry, a subject as dear to the heart of RMRG members as model railways themselves. Mind you apart from the Burton Bridge Micro, theres little there for the beer lover these days, the serried ranks of large tanks with the “Coors” logo emblazoned on them tell you all you need to know about brewing in Burton.

However something good that way comes in the shape of the DEMU showcase event and this year Graham has been invited with Kirkmellington. Its should be a very good show especially for those more internal combustion than steam! 4 and 5 June, Burton Town Hall DE14 2EB

Pot Holder

The news today that Ben had won the chairman’s Cup for exhibiting Amalgamated Wagon at the Bradford Exhibition has raised much cheer amongst the club members as that means the beer is on him at the Horse and Farrier on Wednesday night 😉

Its good news for the club (apart from the free beer) in that a bit of a cinderella layout has been resurrected to a good exhibitable standard and looks like it’s going to be in demand. Keep an eye on our exhibition dates for its next outings. Well done Ben.
