You’re invited to make tracks to a model railway show in Dulwich on Saturday 26th May 2018.
The first one ever in Dulwich and there is a actual mainline railway bridge within the school grounds!
The event is being held from 10am to 4.30pm at James Allen’s Girls School, 144 East Dulwich Grove, London, SE22 8TE
People are invited to make tracks to the model railway show to see up to 20 model railway layouts will be on show in a variety of scales from tiny z gauge to o gauge.
The exhibition is being supported by clubs and modellers from around London, Kent, Essex, Herts with layouts including:
•Rusbury Basin, a layout with a canal system integrated with running steam and diesels.
•Midsummer End, a 1940s steam railway with model aircraft flying above.
•St Mellion, is a small village situated in East Cornwall - a little west of the River Tamar.
•Ville A La Campagne - a quaint model of a fictitious French town, which replicated the terminus of a German narrow gauge line.
There is something about model railways that retains a fascination for those of all ages from five to ninety and probably beyond.
Despite the attractions of other hi-tech past times, many people always find times to enjoy model trains in action and their will be plenty for visitors to see.
The exhibition will be an opportunity for people to enjoy nostalgia in miniature for others to learn about a new potential past time or simply appreciate the care taken to create a model railway.
We are extremely grateful to all the exhibitors who are taking part in the event, some whom are travelling long distances to attend!
