Canberra Model Railway EXPO

The opportunity to indulge your inner model railway enthusiast is approaching on a track near you! The 31st annual Model Railway EXPO run by the Canberra Model Railway Club Inc. opens on Saturday 30th of March at the University of Canberra High School, 104 Baldwin drive Kaleen.
This is now the largest Model Railway exhibition held south of Sydney in the ACT & NSW. Children and their parents, grandparents and extended families can view a large range of model railway layouts in various stages, purchase model railway products, and even ride on scale model steam trains. There is something for people of all ages and at very affordable entry prices.
For anyone interested in trains, model or otherwise, the 2019 Canberra Model Railway EXPO on Saturday 30th March and Sunday 31st March at the U.C. High School in Baldwin Drive Kaleen is a “must see.” Adults and children are welcome, and a family pass is only $25. Doors open 9:00am to 5:00pm on the Saturday and 9:00am to 4:00pm on the Sunday.
The Canberra Model Railway Club Inc. is a not for profit organisation, dedicated to having fun with model railways. We have no particular bias to any scale, however in practice most of our members model Australian prototype in HO, and this is the basis of our club layouts.
New members are very welcome. Your level of ability or experience will not matter as we are willing to share our knowledge and skills. We also invite you to contribute to our knowledge of our great hobby.
We meet on the first and third Wednesday of every month in rooms at The University of Canberra High School (Kaleen), 104 Baldwin Drive, Kaleen, from 7:30PM to about 9:30PM. At our meetings, we hear from speakers on modelling related topics plus a Show n Tell and current club topics. We also work on or operate the Club layout.
The club rooms are also open each Tuesday morning from about 9.30AM to approximately midday. Those who are able to attend on Tuesday mornings assist with constructing club projects, run trains, or simply have a good yarn. Tea and coffee are also on the agenda.
In addition, there are occasional working bees on weekends plus visits to other Clubs, museums, Members’ layouts, etc as the Members wish. Please contact us for details of our next meeting.
