The Railway Preservation Society of Ireland is to hold a Model Railway Day in November 2019.
The WRM Model Railway Day will take place between 10 am and 5 pm on Saturday 9th November 2019.
At least two dozen model railway layouts have already accepted the Society’s invitation to exhibit.
The layouts will be displayed at various locations throughout Whitehead Railway Museum, including in the Stables and the Carriage Gallery.
There will be steam trains rides at the platform for most of the day allowing visitors to experience the real thing as well.
The Edwardian Tea Room will be open for the event serving food and drink.
Highlights of the show will be a layout of a distillery build by Peter Smith coming over from England for the first time.
Another hoped for first is North Down Model Railway Club’s new “Antrim” layout.
Admission prices are £10 for adults which includes admission to the Museum to see the layouts and steam train rides. Visitors arriving by NI Railways on the day will get a 20% discount on production of their train ticket.
