A visit to Crofton Beam Engines this May Day Bank Holiday offers an opportunity to admire some of the finest examples of model making and engineering skills ever seen in this part of the UK.
There will be exhibits and contributions from:
– The Guild of Model Wheelwrights
– Sarum Model Traction Club
– West Wilts Society of Model Engineers
– Reading Society of Model Engineers
– Andover and District Model Engineering Society
– Andover Model Railway Club
– Swindon Model Railway Club
– Fantastic models in Meccano
In addition there will be a historic workshop and many private exhibitors with lots of working models displayed over the whole site to enjoy.
As well as all the usual Crofton attractions, including our historic beam engines in steam and the Engineman’s Rest Cafe, this weekend offers a really close up view of some wonderful models and the chance to meet and speak to some of the most skilled model engineers in the south of England.
Gates open 10:30-16:30 on each day and normal steaming day admission prices apply.
Although we plan to include all these elements within our programme we reserve the right to change exhibits and exhibitors as circumstances may require.
