I’m looking for help! 

We (MMRG) have a model railway exhibition at Tytherington School on 9th and 10th March and, if you have any spare time, we’d much appreciate your help. There’s a lot you could help with ….. setting up from 1600hrs on Friday 8th March (followed by a free pint!), dismantling from 1630 on Sunday 10th (Sorry. Buy your own pint – you’ll be too thirsty!) and a whole host of stuff during the show itself. If you could help, please message me (Facebook) or e-mail at

You can see the sorts of things we could use your help with in February’s Newsletter. If you don’t have a copy, you can download it (free) from our Newsletter archive.

Your support would be invaluable.

SUBSCRIBERS – January Newsletter

For those subscribers of you who may have missed your invitation to download the Newsletter, what with holidays, family commitments, travel and involvement in more general festivities, fear not. A second invitation will be winging its way to you on Wednesday 2 Jan.


January Newsletter

Apologies to all non-subscribers to the Newsletter ….. it will be available on this web site, Facebook and a variety of other sites on Wednesday (2 Jan) evening ….. you have not been forgotten!

However, in future, you can ensure that you get your copy ‘hot off the presses’ by subscribing and it will be mailed to you direct, via ‘MailChimp’, on the first day of publication.

What can we say? It makes sense to subscribe (it’s free!) and you can ‘unsubscribe’ at any time with no questions asked. All you have to do is go to the ‘Newsletter’ option in the main menu and ‘sign up’! What is it that meerkat says? Simples!


HEADS UP all Newsletter subscribers! Your New Year issue should be hitting your e-mail ‘in-boxes’ at 0800 hours, Sunday 30th December. If it isn’t in your ‘in-box’, check that it hasn’t been filed as ‘junk mail’ …… it does happen! We’d hate you to miss your copy.
