The South of England FNRM outreach stand promotes the National Railway Museum, and its Friends. The staff can provide advice on how to get to the NRM and its outstation at Shildon, what's on etc. The stand has working OO models of Rocket and carries many souvenier lines, all related to the NRM and the National Collection. The events which the stand is scheduled to attend can be found in the Diary section of this website. The souvenir products available from the stand include:

  • Greeting cards, fridge magnets, keyrings, tea towels, prints, tote-bags - with a variety of illustrations of National Collection locomotives or class members, or railway posters from the NRM collection.
  • FNRM monograms on National Collection locomotives
  • Railway Company Plaques
  • Badges of National Collection locomotives
  • Plastic models of Rocket

Note that FNRM Members can benefit from a 10% reduction in price on many items by showing their membership card.
