O Gauge Get Together - 4th & 5th September

@ The Engine House - Higley SVR

A like minded group of SVR based O gauge modellers have organised an O gauge “get together” at the Engine house over the weekend of the 4th and 5th September. 6 layouts confirmed including the Bewdley MPD groups “Burlish Road” and the award winning “Ventnor West”. “Little Burford” as featured in Hornby Magazine, “Willowbrook Marsh” and “Treloar Sidings” come from the Luton model railway club. An impressive set up of coarse scale trains is planned, along with a diorama of Bridgnorth Station from the Bridgnorth station team and “Woodys wagons” from our own Martin Wood.

Dapol are booked to appear to show off their latest projects in the scale and will have a selection of factory seconds, other traders booked so far include “Modelu” (go and get yourself scanned and printed in miniature form), “Connoisseur Models”, “Ragstone Models”and “Walsworth Models”. 

So far volunteers have managed to put together this event at no cost to the SVR with extreme thanks due to the layout owners for offering their masterpieces at no cost.

By car: Car parking is extremely limited at the Engine House; we advise to arrive by Severn Valley Railway train (see below), but there is a small car park at Highley Country Park (WV16 6NU) on Station Road. Alternatively there is parking in Highley village which is 20 minutes walk away.

By Train: The Severn Valley Railway are running their current covid safe service which entails booking a seat/compartment for the duration of the day. We advise for flexibility to book on the “Adventurer” or “Explorer” services which call at Highley 4 times during the course of each day. The “Flyer” service is also planned to run on the Saturday which includes an hour stop at Highley in the morning. We would like to point out that a saving can be made by booking a compartment as opposed to individual seats.

By Public Transport: Diamond Bus operates the 125 Halesowen-Bridgnorth service on Saturdays. How to get to the “O gauge get together”  Bus operates the 125 Halesowen-Bridgnorth service on Saturdays.
