I & WEMRC Annual Exhibition 2008

This year was our 53rd Annual Model Railway Exhibition.

Saturday 04 October 2008 - 10am to 5pm
Sunday 05 October 2008 - 10am to 4pm
St. Edwards School, London Road, Romford RM7 9NX.

A very special guest ...


This year were honoured with the visit of a railway celebrity, Jack the Station Cat, the popular character of children's fiction. Author Alan Cliff is possibly unique amongst authors in that 50% of all profits go to the designated charity noted in each book.

We celebrated Jack's visit with a Treasure Hunt with special prizes for children, including a full set of Jack the Station Cat books personally signed by Alan Cliff.

Included with each children's ticket was a free train ride on the 5" gauge miniature railway provided by exhibition regulars Ride On Railways of Romford, who fully embraced our 'Jack' theme by running from 'Much Purring' to 'Tails End'.
