expoEM Summer 2023
A Showcase of the Best in 4mm Railway Modelling
The flagship event of the EM Gauge Society in the North of England is back for 2023 and will take place over the weekend of August 19th/20th at Kettlethorpe High School, the venue we first used in 2019. On display will be at least eight finescale layouts representing the best in 4mm scale modelling.
As usual there will be plenty of opportunity to stock up on modelling supplies with a good range of specialist traders in attendance. In addition there will be a variety of ‘Show you how’ demonstrations and other special interest society stands. There will also be the EMGS test track plus the EMGS Trade Officer will be in attendance selling, amongst other things, the Society’s range of EM track and points. Additionally the ever popular members’ sales stand will be selling second hand models, kits and bits.

EMGS Trade Stand and Society Apparel


As usual the EMGS Trade Officer will be there with the stand. However he will not be able to bring all the items stocked because of transport logistics. He will be happy to bring along any pre-ordered items for payment on the day, BUT these must be ordered with a deadline to reach him by 7 days prior to the show. He will be able to take cash, cheques and cards as payment at the show.
