    expoEM Summer 2022
    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 2022 and will take place over the weekend of August 20th/21st 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.
