At some of the Model Railway Exhibitions, and some that are not listed above, it is possible that we will be represented by our supporting Model Shop, Harrison-Brown Models http://harrisonbrownmodels.co.uk/ from who's web shop you can obtain a number of our items on line!
Appeal for HelpWe are looking for a group of people to help to run the sales and information stands to enable us to cover as many as possible. The only qualifications you will need are a good sense of humour, a willingness to stand on cold drafty and sometimes damp platforms and a keenness to see small locos working on the Bluebell Railway!
Full training will be given, and indeed we might even learn from you! in addition to the qualifications noted above you will need to be a paid up member of the Bluebell Railway and will be required to attend a short safety briefing given by the Bluebell Railway.
If you are in a position to help us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks in anticipation.
