Saturday 20th July

Open from 10.00 till 17.00


The Chiltern Model Railway Association will be holding an Interactive Modeller's Workshop in 2019. The day involves modellers who belong to member organisations of the CMRA, presenting and demonstrating items of modelling interest to colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere, away from exhibition constraints.

The event will also incorporate films, talks, discussions and practical demonstrations, some by leading figures in the railway modelling hobby.

The event is open to all members of our Associate organisations, and to non-members. It is one of those pleasant opportunities to talk, listen, learn and pass on your ideas to like minded modellers, indeed all participants are encouraged to reserve table space so as to bring along their models and share their experiences.

Admission includes tea, coffee and an excellent buffet lunch - what more could you ask for?
