The Bachmann Collectors’ Club is to sponsor this year’s Train Collectors Society (TCS) summer exhibition for the fifth year. The event is to be held at Sandy Upper School, Beds, on 2nd July and provides the largest single gathering of historical operating layouts and displays under one roof in the UK.
The annual TCS exhibition was established in 1999 and Bach-mann’s sponsorship of the event commenced in 2007. Featuring a range of models produced over the past 100 years or so, the show will have operating vintage layouts in many different scales and gauge combinations, several specialist traders and is supported by clubs including Bassett-Lowke, Hornby, Kit-master, Tri-ang, Trix and Wrenn.
David Ramsey, TCS chair, commented: “Members of the TCS are interested in all types of model trains produced. We are delighted that Bach-mann will again represent our great hobby by show-casing the latest models. The support of Bachmann for 2011 reinforces the point that model and toy train collecting is not just about the past but also the present.”
Dennis Lovett, PR Manager for Bachmann Europe Plc, added: “The TCS Exhibition is without doubt an event where we can show the very latest models from Bachmann alongside those from the past. Our involvement over the last five years has seen us raise our profile amongst collectors and increased membership of our own collectors’ club.”
