Choo choo! Model railway exhibition rolls into city

The exhibition will feature more lay-outs than ever before

The City of Canterbury Model Railway Society will be celebrating its 30th exhibition since reforming as a club in 1988 by holding its biggest exhibition yet in terms of lay-outs.

It takes place at St Anselm’s School in Old Dover Road, Canterbury, over the weekend.

Exhibition manager Jeremy Kennett said: “We have aimed to invite back exhibitors who have previously attended over the years, most with different layouts this year, but we welcome back for its last public appearance the iconic Tonbridge West Yard by Paul Wade.

“The layout has been to Canterbury twice before and will have been to all three of our venues over the years.

“Paul has upgraded the scenery and stock for the last few years of exhibiting and is about to retire the layout to his home but will be back on the exhibition circuit before too long with a new smaller layout, so look out for that.”

The exhibition takes place at the weekend

Younger visitors to the exhibition will be able to take a ride on large-scale trains operated by the Canterbury and District Model Engineering Society in the back playground.

Hot and cold food and drinks will be provided by the school on both days while traders will be selling model railway parts and equipment.

The exhibition takes place on from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, January 19 and from 10am to 4pm on Sunday, January 20.
