Carnforth Station railway collectors’ fair Sunday 31st May 2020

The Carnforth dates for 2020 are now available. Sunday 31st May and Sunday 16th August. (9.30am until 2pm). The May date has been changed to avoid a clash with an event at the Crewe Heritage Centre on 16th May. The station is well worth a visit most days with its museum, shop and restaurant. The shop and restaurant sell postcards related to the station. The fair sees the main platform occupied by a variety of stall holders selling railwayana, model railways and even postcards!
