Past Events:

AGM 2016

The AGM 2016 was be held on Saturday 15th October 2016 at Keen House, 4 Calshot Street, Kings Cross, London N1 9DA, the home of the Model Railway Club. This is a short walk from Kings Cross railway station.

( The last time I visited Keen House, the door is a fairly anonymous dark door, with a couple of door bells to gain attention. I imagine that once the event is open, there will be someone at the door to welcome people into the building).

The doors open at 10am for the model displays, etc. and the formal AGM is at 2pm.

Amongst the things to see are the models Copenhagen Fields (and a chance to look behind, without the usual deep crowds!), Pete Matcham's layout 'Kyle of Lochalsh' and Mark Fielder's 'Pizza' layout. Laurie Adams will be displaying some of the late Steve Sykes' pre-grouping wagon models and Noel Leaver will be doing a mini-demonstration of the Faller car system. Plus the members display stands and competitions (please bring something along to display!).

The Association's "central" (or travelling) shop will be in attendance.
