EVENTS

Train Show 2006

The 2006 "Model Train Show" was held on the 9th & 10th September. Many of the Exhibitors were MMACA members.

I have to congratulate the committee members who organized the event for putting on another a great show. The committee was headed up by John Mayo, the area representative of the BRMA in Tasmania and he was ably backed by Bob Rayner, Geoff Foster (HRCAA), John Fielding and myself.

Again the Glenorchy Lions Club supported this event as they did in 2005. And on this project I know that the Lions were very happy with the result with some $4000 being raised for their youth project services programme. There were 15 operating layouts. Some features included:

  • A second hand table BRMA - HRCAA
  • Valuations
  • Demostrations
  • Children's competitions
  • Kid’s Layout – which proved to be extremely popular.

The venue was the same as 2005, in the betting hall under the main grandstand at the Royal Agricultural Society's Showgrounds in Glenorchy and it remains an ideal venue for this type of one discipline Model Making Exhibition.

Southern Cross Television was again the major sponsor and we extend our thanks to them and look forward to their continued support.
