Train displays for the modeller and all the family at Westgate, by Pizza Hut, near Event Cinemas.

See map for exact location.

HO and N scale trains operating all day with a variety of scenic backdrops. Also an unusual large scale 1 gauge train. Seven layouts from the Auckland Marklin Club, the Western Districts Model Rail Club, the American Independent Model Railway Club and individual enthusiasts.

The main display features 28 metres of double track with multiple long trains operating. Scenes include a working quarry, a wedding, a Hundertwasser-themed village, a busy station, a logging camp with its own train, a complete town with lighting and a fountain, an accident scene and deep river gorges.

A table top electric train set is provided for children to operate themselves, learning how to control speed, reverse direction, and couple and uncouple wagons.

As well as enjoying the displays, you have the opportunity to learn about modelling from enthusiasts and to join a club. Dust off your forgotten engines and rolling stock lying at the back of the cupboard and bring them along. See if they will run and what they may be worth. Advice on repairs can be given.

All proceeds support further shows and the hobby of modelling. Organised by the Auckland Marklin Club. Enquiries to Phil 0274400409.

The photos show scenes from previous shows and there is a map to show the location.
