Hi Welcome to Macclesfield Model Railway Groups Blog. Here you will find articles, muses and news about our group or other related articles.
With regard to news, Purgatory Peak visited Folkestone Model Railway exhibition and although it would be fair to say we had some snags it was a resounding success with the “Peak” getting Best in show, as this was a public vote; so much the better! There are some things that the ON30 group has to fix before it is packed up again, as it is on its way to Orleans in November. On a personal note, thanks to the ON30 guys for the privilege of joining them for the weekend! More on the Folkestone trip in Novembers newsletter.
