Medway Queen gets great support from the local community, both private and business. We are delighted to welcome the A Class Driving School to that happy band of active supporters.
We owe thanks to our volunteer, Mitch Peeke, who also works for the driving school for going the extra mile and setting this up for us. Here's to a mutually beneficial arrangement!
For 00 Gauge modellers there is a new 7-plank wagon available in 2 colours (above), commissioned from Dapol and delivered ahead of schedule in February. The price has been held at the same level as the previous 00 vehicles at £12-75 per wagon. UK P&P is £3-30 per order. As can be seen in the photograph, this issue of wagons honours the small band of dedicated volunteers who give up their spare time to work on our ship.
Reading Support Group will have the wagons for sale at the London Festival of Model Railways in Alexandra Palace, London on 24/25th March and at other events. They can be bought at the Visitor Centre (from 24th March) or you can order by post from Richard Halton at 21 Lakeside, Earley, Reading. RG6 7PG. Cheques payable to “R. Halton” please. Email enquiries and Paypal payments/orders to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have a very small number of the “Gillingham Pier” wagons remaining in both green and bauxite.
