Saturday 30th March (TTRCA event)
Sports & Social Club, Astrop Road, Middleton Cheney, Oxfordshire, OX17 2PG. Trix Get-Together. Set-up from 8am, open 9.30am to 2pm. Access off M40, Junction 11: follow A442 towards BRACKLEY, turn off at roundabout signed MIDDLETON CHENEY. Turn right at cross road in village into ASTROP ROAD, the venue is 100 metres on left. Buses from Banbury Stagecoach 500 (towards Brackley).

  • This year we have working display layouts from Jeff Carpenter, who is sure to be running pre-war TTR with many early wooden buildings on display.

  • Clive Parker is bringing his micro display again, running later 50's style Trix, with some of his ingenious conversions of standard Trix Twin locos. And last but by no means least, Geoffrey Robinson with his extensive build-on-the-day railway featuring later 12 volt DC items and working overhead electrics.

  • Sales tables, covering every era and price range you might be tempted by, will be provided by myself with rolling stock and official TTRCA shirts and caps in a range of sizes. Plus sales from Dixon Upcott, David Best, David Holmes, Peter Berry, Don Holder and of course Martin Drayson with the popular range of TTRCA official spares. John Brown is expected to bring his range of new style replica boxes. It is likely that exhibitors with layouts will have some small areas of sales alongside their tables.

  • Master painter John Hopkinson will be there to advise on repairs and repaints and will have a range of excellent alternate liveries to customise to your own choice.

  • I am expecting Franz Nowack from Germany to add international flavour and advice. I am not sure that he will bring any sales items from so far away by public transport, but if he does, make sure you pay him a call.

  • And of course excellent freshly prepared food by my daughter, including the well-received TTRCA event cup cakes that sold out quickly at Gaydon lnternational last September.

See you there from 09.30 onwards. Remember we close at 2 pm.
