Model railways are so fascinating, even if you are not a model railway enthusiast! The intricate detail mastered in this type of exhibition is amazing.

This exhibition is the longest running model railway exhibition in Australia and is the largest in New South Wales. The layouts on display cover all scales and prototypes and come from all over Australia. This is a very diverse exhibition with high-quality exhibitions.

Over the three days, there will be thousands of people of all ages and interests who attend. There are also commercial stands and demonstration clinics. There will be more than 70 trade stands here.

There will also be exhibitions from organisations such as the Sydney Tramway Museum, Railway Transport Museum and the Australian Railway Historical Society.

For the children, there will be Thomas the Tank Engine rides during the event. AMRA NSW also runs its U-Drive for children at the bargain price of $1 for 3 minutes.
