I must admit this is a bit of a 'selfish plug' of a post but one that needs to be done at the start of each Winter. The meeting this evening was most enjoyable but also quite serious, mapping out the various plans for next years do. In 2016, Statfold welcomed 74 miniatures to its Tamworth base from across the country and for the next one its looking like there will be 90 or more! Thinking of those engines certainly takes me back to the first year of planning the first MTEW back at Market Bosworth over the Winter of 2012 and practically begging people to join us. These days, thankfully, people are often willing to come along and that is fantastic. For those that wish to visit us next year please note that the weekend has moved back 2 weeks for the first time in 5 years. This has been due to both searching for warmer weather (we're sick of frost!) and for operational reasons at the SBR. Below are a few images from the event this year which we hope may entice a few more visitors...
