News Early 2024.

On the 18th. February the Guild was invited to put on a display at the British Commercial Vehicle Museum. 6 members were able to attend at quite short notice and were able to fill several tables with an interesting collection of models. Some of these are shown below. Click on them for more details.

The Hands-On Plastic Meccano Workshop was in operation and about 20 models were constructed, most to original design. A slide show of some of them can be accessed from a picture below.

On the 3rd. March, we were invited to exhibit at the Ellenroad Steam Museum. We filled 9 tables with models. Pictures appear lower down on this page.

Ellenroad Steam Museum, 3rd March 2024.

7 members and one visitor were able to attend and filled 9 tables. Unfortunately, the resident engines were not in steam, which was a pity because we displayed several Meccano models of steam engines. There was plenty for the younger visitors to enjoy. Of particular interest were a model of the Barton Swing Aqueduct and one of the Giant Meccano Bridge at Nob-End. Chris. Harris is making a normal size version for display at Maghull Library ( Frank Hornby lived in Maghul for much of his life).

Pictures of many of the models appear below. Click on them for more information.

Some of others  were also at BCVM and their pictures can be seen higher up on this page. It is hoped that more details of Chris’s effort will appear on the Giant Meccano Bridge page.

There is more information about this model on the

Virtual Meeting 2021 page.
