Carnival Of Trains
Carnival Of Trains
With the Annual Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers about to begin, it is also time to enjoy the hobby of Model Railroading in the flowery setting of the Darling Downs Model Railway Club Inc. Model Railway Museum & Display Centre, located within the grounds of the Toowoomba Showgrounds, off the end of Glenvale Road, Toowoomba.
The Display Centre will be open from 10am till 4pm each day beginning on Saturday the 20th September right through to Sunday the 28th September.
With the weather helping the gardens all round, the setting for the Model Railway Museum & Display Centre is flowering out beautifully, as we have hot and cold drinks available, you can sit in the garden on our "sleeper seats", take in the fresh air and relax.
All the while, there are model trains running on layouts in Z, N and HO scales, along with constant video screenings of railway subjects and nostalgic displays of real and model railway history.
To help you enjoy the occasion of your visit and give you ideas towards modelling trains, you can pick up a FREE magazine about model trains and/or prototypes.
Take a look at the How To Build A Model Railway Display Layout and of course, feel free to ask any questions.
Don't forget to take out an entry in the "SPOT THE SPONSOR" competition for your chance to win a Family Pass to the Workshops Rail Museum at Ipswich.
We also carry some new and pre-loved Model Trains and associated items for sale, you never know, that item you have been looking for might just be with us.
There is ample free parking, buses/coaches have easy access and the venue is wheelchair and stroller friendly.
What does it cost to take all this in, entry is FREE, but we do always appreciate a gold coin donation to help us develop the Model Railway Museum & Display Centre into an attraction you will want to return to.
We look forward to seeing you, September 20th through to September 28th, 10am till 4pm each day, Toowoomba Showgrounds, Glenvale Road, Toowoomba.
