EARLY MOTOR CARS

This week the archive article is taken from the short lived Engineering Times looking at the earliest motor car experiments which have sadly not been the subject of many models over the years with the late Ron Jarvis being the brilliant exception.


.

.


CORLISS ENGINE BUILD

MEWS readers will be familiar with Vince Cutajar. This is his ambitious first steam engine, the Corliss, on which Julius based his drawings.

.



CORLISS ENGINE DRAWINGS

GARDEN RAIL SHOW RESCHEDULED

Due to the ongoing impact and uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic the Midlands Garden Rail Show has been rescheduled to Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd May 2021 at the Warwickshire Event Centre, Leamington Spa.

The organisers, Meridienne Exhibitions, have taken this decision to reduce the potential impact of the pandemic on the event if it was to be held on its normal date in March. 

Hopefully by rescheduling the event to May next year restrictions may well be removed and allow the event to operate as normal.

As this continues to be a fast moving and changeable period please see the website www.midlandsgardenrailshow.co.uk  for all the latest information.

Advance Tickets will be on sale from 1st March 2021.

.



DVDs

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, deliveries of MEWS DVDs to some locations are subject to delay at the moment.
