expoEM Autumn 2019
A Showcase of the Best in 4mm Scale Railway Modelling
**New location for 2019**
The Autumn flagship event of the EM Gauge Society will take place this year over the weekend of September 7th/8th at its new venue of Kettlethorpe High School, Wakefield.
On display will be seven 4mm finescale layouts plus this year’s ‘guest layout’, Oakhurst Town (Scaleseven SER, 1880s). In addition there will be plenty of opportunity to stock up on modelling supplies with around 20 specialist traders in attendance, plus a contingent of ‘Show you how’ demonstrations and other special interest society stands. As usual there will also be the EMGS Trade Stand and the ever popular Members’ Second Hand Sales.
