Next Scheduled Events.
Coffee and Polish 5th August
This coming Thursday (5th August) we continue with the next round of our Dust Down Programme at the National Motorcycle Museum.
We completed a Blitz on the older machines in Hall 1at our last visit with the result that their Nickel, Brass and Copper bits have been polished to eye dazzling brilliance, their tyres pumped and headlamp lenses left sparkling.
We have a great team of regular Midland and Warwick Section members who continue to support the Museum in its determined efforts to preserve our British motorcycle heritage.
If you would like to enjoy some likeminded company and help with this important maintenance programme you will be more than welcome.
Spend as much or as little time as you wish, all cleaning materials are provided
As the Museum is open again, entry is through the Main Entrance from 10:00.
After our exertions we enjoy free Tea, Coffee and Biscuits in the plush new Coffee Lounge where we chat and make plans for future Section events.
Hope to see you there.
Light Railway Tour Saturday 14th August.
Light Railway Tour Saturday 14th August
Visit to the Echills Wood Railway in Kingsbury Water Park. It is a seven and a quarter inch gauge miniature railway built and operated by a group of enthusiasts and dedicated volunteers.
The railway runs a passenger carrying service using scale models of engines and trains that run on the full size national railway. There is a 2 km line running through some of the beautiful wooded 600 acres of Kingsbury Water Park
There are diesel locomotives, electric locomotives and trams.
As a special treat for us they will also be running some steam locomotives, in addition to the usual Diesel and Electric trains; in addition they are giving us a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of workshops and areas not open to the general public.

We have enough interest for a Midi Coach and have the possibility to increase to a larger coach if there is enough demand.
We are also looking for expressions of interest for a trip to Bovington Tank Museum in November (say Tuesday November 9th) with similar costings, but leaving NMCM at 7.00am and returning from Bovington at 5.00pm, as travel times are longer.
Again if you are interested let Geoff know contact details as above.
