The City of Canterbury Model Railway Society will be presenting its 26th model railway exhibition at St Anselms School, Old Dover Road, Canterbury, CT1 3EN on 17th and 18th January from 10 until 5 on Saturday and 10 until 4.30 on Sunday.
As ever the Society has brought model railways from all over the country to entertain its visitors. There are layouts large and small, from busy main lines with lots of trains to sleepy byways with an atmosphere of bygone days.
For the young there will be a small railway where they can drive trains with Thomas and friends, and the Canterbury and District Model Engineers will be running their popular rode on trains as long as the weather permits.
The host club will have on display it’s new layout called Nonington Quay, this is being built to give the less experienced members a chance to learn by getting down and doing it. Work will be continuing during the exhibition, do feel free to stop and ask questions. If you’d like to be part of the project then details of club membership will be available.
Refreshments will be available all day, from a cup of tea to a full lunch. There is free parking on site for many cars, and lots of buses stop near the school.
