In which details of items for sale and merchandise commissioned by RRRG or RRU to raise funds for the project is given.
RRRG was at the Nene Valley Railway diesel gala at Wansford over the weekend of 11-12 April with our sales stand. We always enjoy trading at Wansford and it was evident the NVR had gone to great lengths to put on a good show with a large number of visiting locomotives. Pleasingly the gala was very well attended and we enjoyed a good sales performance. Many thanks to all the people who dropped by to say hello and to those who bought something from us; we hope you enjoy your purchases and thanks for supporting us! Thanks also to the NVR for the invitation to attend.
If you missed us at the gala, we are pleased to advise that our web shop has recently been restocked. We have a fresh selection of brand new Hornby models as well as branded t-shirts, polo shirts, fleeces and mugs. Restoring 50029 and 50030 is neither easy nor cheap. If the enthusiast community wants them to run again, we shall need to draw further on your support to achieve that goal!

Just in time for Christmas shopping season, RRRG is pleased to offer a number of new lines of merchandise. We now have fleeces, polo shirts, new designs of t-shirts and mugs plus keyrings and phone cases!
Our A4-sized appointments calendar Class 50s Now and Then is still available from our online shop! Priced at £6.95 plus P&P, each month features important dates in Class 50 history such as dates of introduction or namings. The calendar is produced to the same high quality finish as the Rail Photoprints/Platform 5 series. October 2014 features shots of 50015 Valiant at Bury Bolton Street station in a night shoot at the East Lancashire Railway in January 2011 by Mark Burrows and in Dutch livery at Hereford in 1991 by Chris Holland.
Don't forget that our 2014 calendar "Class 50s Now and Then" is still available priced at £6.95 plus P+P. The image for September 2014 is one of 50035 Ark Royal in LoadHaul livery at Kidderminster station on the Severn Valley Railway together with a shot of the same locomotive in almost as-delivered condition and un-named, at Newton Heath Shed in 1975, photographed by Anthony Middleton and David Gray respectively.
