Railway enthusiasts, family and friends are invited to check out the second oldest model railway organisation in Queensland at Bundaberg Model Railway Club’s open day.
To be held at the Bundaberg Model Railway Clubhouse visitors will see detailed miniature locomotives in action and they will also have the chance to find out some of the history of the long-running organisation.
Bundaberg Model Railway Club promotion officer John Bonnett said this year they would have a new track, which had been under construction for some time, up and running.
“There will be six layouts running on the day with club members on hand to welcome visitors and answer questions,” John said.
“Many changes have been made to the landscaping since our last open day.
“Also, the new N scale layout is under construction and is at a very interesting stage.”
John said the club’s open day attracted people from the wider community to stop by and say hello.
“Children as young as two or three years old enjoy watching trains go by, as do their parents, grandparents and other family and friends,” John said.
“The open day is free to attend, and just a great way to promote the hobby.
“People can come along any day of the year that we are open, but these open days draw in more people.
“We hope there will be as many visitors as possible on the day to enjoy our hobby and help make our open day a success.”
Bundaberg Model Railway Club is the second oldest model railway organisation in Queensland, and the open day will give the community a chance to find out about the long-running history of the club.
Bundaberg Model Railway Club’s open day will be held between 9 am and 3 pm on 13 August, at the old showgrounds, with entry via Kensington Street.
