North 3 (CMCR 9) 2014 schedule.
Jun 14th, 2014, 10:15pm
 
The restored scanner- North 3- †(possibly accompanied by Unit 23) is all set to appear at the Kelsall Steam Fair near Tarvin, Cheshire next weekend (22nd, 23rd June).

Also in the offing are:-
Wilmslow Show (appearance to be confirmed) on Sunday, 13th July,
Astle Park Steam Fair, near Chelford, Cheshire, on Sat/Sun 9th and 10th August and
Shrewsbury Steam Rally, Onslow Park, on Sun 24th and Bank Holiday Monday 25th August.

Information about this famous vehicle may be found here.

And the restorationís story is here.



The team hope to meet up with some of you (especially the crew!!) at one or other of these events.

It's probably best to confirm the events nearer the time.

North 3 is one of the few surviving examples of full-sized TV Outside Broadcast Vehicles. It has been restored with care, and affection. This type of 'scanner' produced many of the BBC's most famous and loved outside broadcasts.

From "The Grand National" to "The Good Old Days". TV OBs were there.

If anyone has any memories of these vehicles, please add them here.

If you have any spare parts- even better!

Jerry Clegg has written to remind us of CMCR 9's schedule.


"Just to let you know that type-2 CMCR9 / ex-LO5 / Midland / North 3 will be on display at the Shrewsbury Steam Rally, Onslow Park, Shrewsbury SY3 5EE, this coming Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday 24th and 25th August.

Note that the show does not start until Sunday, but does continue on the Monday. This is the farthest south that North 3 will venture this year. Its also probably the last outing for this year, except for the Manchester Science Fair appearance at the University of Salford at the end of October."

Well worth a visit.  I thoroughly enjoyed my visit when it was at Kelsall.

The former London 5 / Midland / North3 type-2 scanner CMCR9 will have its final outing for this year to the University of Salford Media Centre on Salford Quays as part of the Manchester Science Festival on 25th/26th October.


The Manchester Science Festival web-site is here.


Thanks to Jerry Clegg for the information.
