Roundhouse Engineering open day
« on: February 18, 2011, 02:29:03 PM »
Hi, Just thought I would post the details of the Roundhouse Engineering's factory open day which is on the Sunday May 22nd 2011 from 10am until 2pm. Free entry and there is even a free buffet laid on. So if you fancy seeing how 16mm narrow gauge live steam garden railway locomotives are manufactured, or you want to have a (play) drive one of the many locomotives running on the day, then come on over, you will be made very welcome!

Cheers

Rob,

Thanks, looks really interesting to me - only an hour and a half or so from Doncaster too. Do you think I'd be able to take my son (5 year old)? Think he'd love to see it all too!

Cheers,

Hi Rob,

I'd like to come along, weather etc permitting.

BTW, the exact location wasn't immediately obvious (to me, at any rate) from the website, but a bit of delving produced this:
Roundhouse Engineering Co. Ltd.
Units 6-9, Churchill Business Park
Churchill Road
Wheatley
Doncaster
DN1 2TF

Andy
ENGLAND


Andy
Sale, Cheshire
I've cut the end off it twice, but it's still too short
