Ready to Roll……..

We are all set for a great event on Sunday 15th March – Mums and all! As well as the usual mix of stallholders drawn from across Scotland and the Borders, the North East, Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria, we have also some new faces who have decided to see what all the fuss is about at Rosehill. Some are selling off parts of their own collections whilst others in attendance are simply happy to put on a bit of a show, such as the North East Meccano Society; Peter Metcalfe (Hornby Dublo – 3-rail); George Johnson & David Ranson (demonstrating the appeal of ‘O’ gauge) and Peter Koch-Osborne’s amazing goods yard diorama – which is completely self-contained within 3 box files! See the attached image for a small taste of his work.12-01-23_113547__M=A_R=8_S=4 lo resIn contrast, Peter will also be showing a few of his treasured ‘O’ gauge locos. Whatever your model interests, new or vintage, big or small scale, you can’t help but be impressed by the variety and choice on offer. Don’t forget, you can buy, swap or sell and we are hoping to raise some money for the Great North Air Ambulance too!
