Next stop… the Model Train Show

IT will be full steam ahead later this month when the popular Model Train Show returns to Glenorchy.

Held on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 August, the event is a joint initiative between the Glenorchy Lions Club and the British Railway Modellers of Australia (BRMA) in conjunction with the Tasmanian Transport Museum Society (TTMS).

A wide assortment of TTMS trains and trams will be open for inspection, as well as about 20 layouts from across Tasmania.

Featuring entertainment for the whole family, the show will include children’s competitions, a raffle, refreshments – including the Lions Club food van and barbecue, and trade stalls by McCanns Model World and Tiger Models and Hobbies.

The BRMA second-hand sales table will offer the opportunity for patrons to add quality railway accessories to their collections.

The Model Train Show will be held at the Tasmanian Transport Museum Society premises in Anfield Street, Glenorchy from 10am to 4pm.

Entry is $12 adults, $5 children (under 12-years) and $25 family, with admission including free steam train rides.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Glenorchy Lions Club and its chosen charities.
