    expoEm North 2016

    Saturday 10.30 – 5.30 Sunday 10.00 – 4.30George H Carnell Leisure Centre, Kingsway Park, Davyhulme, Manchester M41 7FJ

    Located just off junction 9 on the M60 near to the Trafford Centre.

    This year we are back at Davyhulme for one year. The centre has taken a booking on this weekend for subsequent years which regretably will mean a change of venue for 2017. There will be a free vintage bus service from Urmston Station to and from the venue.

    Refreshments are available on site or at various venues in the Trafford Centre also at a pub across the road that serves food. Members entry fee will be £7 with a concession rate for families and children.Tickets are valid for both days.

    The EM Gauge Society aims to bring to the attention of OO modeller the fact that modelling in EM is no more difficult than in OO. Conversion of rolling stock is a simple job with steam out line being a little more time consuming. Joining the Society brings access to a large manual explaining and showing how it is done along with access to the EMGS Trade Officer who is able to supply items you may need all stocked at the same place and at reasonable prices.

    The venue has free parking for over 200 cars with public transport passing the entrance to the centre.
