Our annual exhibition is very popular with over 3000 visitors attending over the weekend and is regarded as one of the best in Kent and is held in October every year at the Leas Cliff Hall.
About two weeks after the exhibition the “post-mortem” is held which is a general meeting held along similar lines to the A.G.M but to discuss the results of the exhibition and to suggest alterations (if required).
We aim to promote the hobby of model railways through our exhibition and we also attend other shows throughout the country either with our own model railway layouts or as stewards.
