High standard at model show

Crawley Model Railway Society are presenting their annual model railway exhibition at Tanbridge House School, Horsham, on Saturday and Sunday April 13 and 14. The show will be to our usual high standard with something for all visitors to enjoy, from the experienced modeller, to the casual admirer, who can watch the model version of the real thing.

At the show there will be approximately 22 layouts of British, American and Continental outline in various scales and gauges. There will be lots of traders selling new and second hand models, kits, scenic materials, tools, and all the bits and pieces to make a model railway layout.

There will also be new and second hand books, magazines, videos and DVDs for sale. A miniature railway will be there for the younger visitor to enjoy a ride.

Refreshments will be available, there is easy access for the disabled and car parking is free. Various railway and model societies will be present.

The Crawley Model Railway Society will have a club stand manned by members keen to give advice and encourage railway modelling, and answer enquiries for anyone who wishes to become a member of the CMRS. We are always looking for new members, who can enjoy the benefits of the club to improve their modelling skills, and can participate in the social nights and club outings that we have at various times of the year.

The event is open from 10am-5pm on Saturday and 10am-4.30pm on Sunday.

Admission: Adults £5.50; Children £3.50; Family (2x2) £15. (Two children free with one adult after 2pm.)
