Description

Australia’s most respected and largest model railway exhibition is celebrating its 10th anniversary, with even more to see and do this year. Enthusiasts will be given the chance to see superb operating layouts running model trains from Victoria, interstate and overseas. Hobby suppliers will have locos, carriages, track, buildings and signals to offer. While many railway books and DVDs will be for sale, so visitors who get the bug can start their own model layout.

Take a ride around the 7 ¼” gauge under-cover track.  Cruise around the venue on a trackless Thomas, as well as Kids’ colouring activities, U-drive Model train Thomas for the kids and LEGO trains.

There will be demonstrations of model train building with plenty of experts on hand to advise beginners on all aspects of the hobby.  Operating layouts indoors and out, traders, displays, train rides, kids’ activities, free parking and air conditioning will help make it a day full of fun for all.
BUT WAIT! There is more. This year will feature R/C trucks and Tanks, with a laser tank battle.
