Bringing railway modelling to the public
The club held an open day to spread the message about model railways as a hobby.
Club members demonstrated a range of skills and expertise involved in planning, building and operating model railways.
Layouts and models in various scales were on view and under construction. Members spent much time throughout the day talking to visitors about what they were doing and discussing techniques. Some visitors had specific matters on which they wanted advice. Others had a general interest in model railways either from long experience or recent opportunities to take up the hobby.
