Due to the current situation, the Poole and District Model Railway Club will be closed for at least one month. We will monitor the situation closely and will reopen when it is advised safe to do so. We will post here when the club will be open again for club activities.
Our 2019 exhibition went very well and thank you to all those who attended. We had 22 great layouts in attendance this year but as always there can only be one ‘Best in Show’ as voted for by the public. This year the prize went to ‘Brixham Bay’ built by Judith & Kevin Cartwrite.
Its almost here, 3 days to go, and we are realy looking forward to it. There will be 22 working layouts at the show in four halls including:
Any City – OO

It all starts at 10am on Sunday morning and we look forward to seeing you there.
We are pleased to announce that Wessex Wagons will be attending this years exhibition. They sell authentic and bespoke Limited Edition model railway rolling stock.
This Bank Holiday Monday is the Grand Donkey Derby, Dog Show, Exhibition & Fete at Pelhams Park in Kinson. And this year, for the first time, they are putting an a Model Railway exhibition and one of our layouts will be there! The event is hosted by the Bournemouth North Rotary Club and its all for charity.
One of our regular visitors to our Exhibition is Keith Tucker and he has made some great videos capturing all the main layouts at the show.
We are now a month away from this years show and things are just about sorted.
As sometimes happens with shows due to unforeseen circumstances layouts have to drop out and sadly Pottendorf, the German HO layout, will not be coming this year but the good news is Llaniog Town, a lovely Welsh N Gauge layout, will be. And there is the possibility of fitting in one more layout, hopefully we will have an update on what that will be soon.
In the mean time its back to the preparations for Sunday the 4th Of November.
