Kernow Model Rail Centre on Tour

What a busy weekend at the two shows, Swindon Railway Festival and The Railway Enthusiasts' Club Model Railway Exhibition! We hope you managed to get to one of them!

Next up we have Worthing Model Railway Exhibition next weekend. It is being held at Durrington High School in Worthing, West Sussex on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th September. Looking forward to October we have four shows!!!

See details of all the future exhibitions we will be attending here.

Did you know...
15 years ago this week there were two very excited men getting ready to open the shop for the first time! The shop was very different then - mainly because in those days you tried to make 100 things look like a 1000! We definitely don't have that problem now!

Newsletter Correction: I was disappointingly not entirely correct about the Westland Sea King (in last weeks newsletter) and my fathers connection. He did indeed fly a Sea King in the Falklands but a different one so half right there! Also he didn't fly one during the conflict but after it during the clean up. My excuse is I wasn't born at the time thus my reason behind not getting it entirely correct! :)

Best wishes,
