The Yorkshire Group of 16mm N.G. Modellers Ltd

The Yorkshire Garden Railway Show [ formerly Elsecar Garden Railway Show ] is organised by the Yorkshire Group of 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers Ltd.

The Yorkshire Group donated £2500 to Yorkshire Air Ambulance in 2019 and the present amount collected during the 2020 Virtual Show is now over £500.


Our 2021 show will be on Saturday 25 September, back in the Ironworks Building at the Elsecar Heritage Centre


We’re hopeful the show will go ahead. However, this is PROVIDED the current restrictions on indoor events are relaxed in good time before the show, and we are satisfied that the show can run safely and effectively.

Barnsley MBC accepts that our show will not be viable if there are restrictions on the hall layout or the number of visitors. For example, restricting the number of visitors allowed in the hall would adversely affect both traders and the economics of the show. We do not have an easy way to sell tickets in advance or to maintain tracing information for all visitors.

We have therefore agreed with Barnsley MBC that the show will go ahead only if there are no onerous safety restrictions. If Government or the local authority decides that restrictions are required, we may cancel the show.

We’ll keep you informed, should anything change over the coming weeks, but our crystal ball for predicting the future course of the pandemic is no better than yours!
