Twenty track layouts will be on show when Crawley Model Railway Society will hold its annual model railway exhibition.

The exhibition will be held on the weekend of April 12/13 at Tanbridge House School, Horsham.

Society member Tim Ford said: “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 20 layouts of British, American, & 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 & 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 and the Crawley Model Railway Society will have a club stand manned by members keen to give advice and encourage railway modelling, and answer enquires for anyone who wishes to join.

Tim added: “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.”
