Sad News about Bob Hill from Earls Barton

Richard Coleman has contacted the K&DMRS website as follows,

“Sorry to report that Bob Hill from Earls Barton passed away on Saturday 03-12.

Bob attended the Kettering shows with his Thomas the Tank Engine layout and second hand stall for many years”.


Successful Annual Show, 2016

Initial numbers suggest that the club has had a more successful show than in the previous year. Factors that might have increased attendace may have the mid morning appearance of the “Flying Scotsman” at Kettering Station on a steam charter as well as no festival competition in the local area!


The club introduced a public vote for the best layout. Over 40% of visitors voted and their choice was Peter Marshall’s “Two Sisters Farm” based on a Lincolnshire potato farm tramway. Peter is pictured with his layout and the club silver signal box trophy!

We hope to bring you a video and stills account of the show very soon!
