Model trains and train exhibition can be an all-consuming hobby and can work out as brilliant displays of technical excellence. This article is about two different train shows, both of which will be worth attending.

In September 1971, there was double-storey ex- RSL premises housed at 92 Wills Street, Glen Iris and this was purchased for the Clubrooms in April 1983. The Victorian branch then became an incorporated association in June 1988, and currently has more than 240 members.

Members can park in the car park at Gate 2, Station Street, Caulfield East. It is then a 100 metre walk to the entrance of the exhibition.
