The Canberra Model Railway Club 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 member’s model Australian prototype in HO, and this is the basis of our club layouts.
Annual Exhibition – 2017 will be the 29th exhibition presented by CMRCI.
The 2017 Expo is on the 25th and 26th March 2017 at the University of Canberra High School – Kaleen. For more details see the EXPO 2017 page on this website. The Expo Manager is Andrew Lund and can be contacted by e-mail here.
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 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.
We also have our “Daylighters” meetings. The Daylighters meet on Tuesday mornings from about 9.30AM to approximately midday. Daylighters are usually Members with health problems or carer duties or other circumstances that make it difficult for them to attend the normal meetings – or retirees that simply wish to join in the Tuesday morning activities as well. The Daylighters built Smiths Crossing, our Children’s U-Drive layout and are currently working on a replacement.. Tea, coffee and a good yarn 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.
