2019 Show

1 Oct: Continuing with the change-over process from the old format site to the replacement version. The Box Office is also now open for both postal and on-line purchases. ALL FUTURE UPDATE ANNOUNCEMENTS WILL BE MADE ON THE NEW SITE's UPDATE PAGE.

30 Sep (20:35) - For the next couple of hours we will be uploading new pages and replacing older one's with those on the revised site - we apologise for any confusion during this period.

25 Sep - Work is ongoing off-line to convert the key pages on the site to WordPress prior to the go-live date for Advance Ticket sales on 1st October. As part of preparation for the new Advance Ticket Season the YMRS website has today also swapped over to https: status, this may require minor updates to personal bookmarks and other links to our web site to use the secure version, our understanding is that existing http: URLs will remain live, alongside the https versions but unsecured. Other updates for the 2019 Show should follow during October.

30 Apr - As we are now clear in 2018 of the equivalent dates to those of the 2019 Show the index page dates and the site header have been updated ready for the 2019 Show. We didn't want people seeing the dates, but missing the year, and traveling to a non-event day! Additionally various pages are also now updated for the change of year although most of next year's exhibitor and other event details will not be finalised until the Autumn. Here's hoping you all have a good Summer's railway modelling and we hope to see you again next Easter.

2 Apr - Advance notice - the 57th York Model Railway Show will be held on 20, 21 & 22 April 2019. Advance tickets scheduled to be available from 1st October 2018.
