Successful Weekend at Birkdale

Posted by Robert Hampton on 4th October 2010 at 9:59 pm

The Friends of the 502 Group is celebrating a successful weekend at the Southport Model Railway Show. Our stand attracted a great deal of interest from show visitors keen to find out more about this unique electric multiple unit.

Friends of the 502 Group Stand

For the first time we had Class 502 souvenirs — mugs, polo shirts and mouse mats — available to buy at the show. If you weren’t able to make it to the show, don’t worry – you will soon be able to purchase the merchandise through our web site shop, with all profits going straight into group funds to aid the unit’s restoration. We will also be announcing further items for sale shortly. In the meantime, our collection of railway books, offered through Amazon.co.uk, is available to buy now.
