We are sorry that we have had to cancel our 2020 show due to the Coronavirus crisis. A number of exhibitor pull outs and a chance of not enough visitors to make the show viable means we cannot go ahead, irrespective of any government ban on gatherings.

Andy Cooper’s “North Ballachulish”, Karl Crowther’s “Hebble Vale Goods” and Tony Bucknell’s “Harkness ” will all be venturing to the dark side of the Pennines to take part in one of our favourite top quality Model Railway shows.

Unfortunately due to personal circumstances, Chris Nevard is unable to attend the show this year with Brew Street and has had to withdraw it from the show. He will be back next year though!
He is replaced at the last moment by Amalgamated Wagon (7mm O Gauge) by Ben Lord. Our thanks to Ben.

Due to unforeseen circumstances both Redwood Lumber and Junction City have had to drop out of this years show.
They are replaced by Nigel Hopwood’s “Three Score Vale” Our thanks to Nigel for stepping in at short notice.
We are off out on the road again this weekend. Skipton show is a bit like the Charity Shield in Football, a curtain raiser for the forthcoming exhibition season. Its now a few weeks earlier than it used to be but nevertheless its always worth a visit. The Rochdale group is a bit mob handed there this weekend as Tony Bucknell’s “Harkness” and Andy Coopers North Ballachulish are both in attendance at the show.
