4th and 5th May 2014 — NRM SHILDON – SPRING STEAM GALA
This event will take place at ‘Locomotion’ in Shildon, Co. Durham, on Sunday 4th and Monday 5th May 2014. The theme for this year's event is ‘The Great Northern Railway’ and on display will be the Stirling Single (with its proper tender) the Ivatt Large Atlantic, the N2 Tank and the J52 Saddle Tank.
The LNWR Society will be sharing a display stand with the GNR Society. Both will be advertising their activities and it is hoped to display models of the locomotives that worked the East Coast and West Coast main lines from 1900 till the grouping.
Some members of the Society from the North East area will be meeting at ‘Locomotion’ on Sunday 4th for an informal get-together and other Society members are cordially invited to join us.
Saturday July 5th 2014 — Modellers' Workshop
The first Modellers Workshop, held last year at Kenilworth, provided those attending with a stimulating day spent discussing many aspects of modelling the LNWR and also the opportunity to delve deeply into the depths of the Study Centre archives.
By popular request a similar event has been arranged to take place at the same venue on Saturday July 5th from 10.30am till whenever we run out of topics to discuss (or 6.00pm).
You are invited to bring examples of your work. test tracks and even layouts as long as they are not too big! Twelve volt power supplies will be available and, hopefully, 'rolling roads' in 4mm and 7mm scales. A device to measure the power output of your locos will be present. Computer facilities will also be available.
Tea and coffee making facilities will be available but you will have to bring your own food or visit the pub nearby. This year we are not asking you to book in advance – just turn up and if we have an overflow we can always retire to the pub!
