Gala Days we should be attending this year.

We have firmed up our information stand programme for 2016

Following on from a successful talk given to the Haywards Heath U3A on the 10th of March and the unfortunate cancellation of the Branch Line weekend we are hopeful that we will have a successful season this year for fund raising (and spending!).

We are at Steyning this weekend attending the Wealden Railway Group Personal Layout model railway show. this is in the Steyning Centre from 10:30 until 4:30 on Saturday ONLY.  Entrance is a mere £3.50. 

Project 27 will be showing a couple of small dioramas and having a sales and information stand to hopefully get the word out and the donations in!  Part of the display will be a rolling slide show of the restoration progress and there will be a display of pictures of the computer model of the cylinders, well worth looking at!
