England: Model railway exhibition steams into Monmouth
From the Free Press: Model railway exhibition steams into Monmouth Monmouth's first Model Railway exhibition steams off on Sunday 5th February at Monmouth Leisure Centre. The event runs from 10.00 to 16.00 and is being organised by Monmouth Rotary Club. Peter Pierce, the driving force behind this new Rotary project said: "this is the first of what will become an annual event that should attract new visitors to Monmouth". There will be over sixteen exciting layouts entered from the surrounding area including Barry, Forest of Dean and further afield such as Thornbury. The layout owners will be on hand to demonstrate their skills and talk to other enthusiasts. There should be the opportunity for those new to the world of model trains to try their hand at running the stock. Also on static display will be 10 amazing engines that are large enough to sit on and use on a special track which the owners set up in their gardens. The engineering on these hand built trains is incredible. Trade stands will be present displaying new trains and track also providing the opportunity to purchase good quality used items. Eric Bottomley will be there with some of his lovely railway paintings. Rotary are very grateful to the businesses in Monmouth who are supporting this new exhibition by advertising in the programme. Entry is Adults £4, Children/Seniors £3, Family 2+2 £10.
