Bedford MES Gala 2019

The Bedford Model Engineering Society are once again holding their Annual Gala at the Summerfields Miniature Railways at Haynes in Bedfordshire. This year’s event will be held over the weekend of Friday 30th August to Sunday – 1st September 2019. As always we extend a cordial invitation to fellow enthusiasts from other clubs to join us for a weekend of miniature railway enjoyment.

Owners of miniature traction engines are also most welcome to attend.

The majority of our ground level track is dual gauge and both gauges will be available for use by visitors on the Friday and Saturday. During public running on Sunday the 5″ gauge on the ground level will not be in use. Visitors with 5″ gauge locomotives will be able to run, and public haul if they wish, on the raised track at Hammer Hill Station.

Friday will be the Welcome day and the railway tracks and the traction engine road will be open for use. Saturday is the Gala day proper while Sunday is a public running day where all our visitors, if they so wish, can run for the public.

Camping and caravan facilities are available on site (by arrangement) from Thursday 29th August to Monday 2nd September, though it may be possible to accommodate tents and caravans beyond these dates if so required. Please note there are a limited number of pitches and they will be allocated on a first come basis.

If you would like to attend please download and complete the attached form and return it to us as soon as possible, but no later than 17th August 2019.

We look forward to welcoming you to our annual Gala weekend
