From January 12 to 16, SARMA will  have a variety of locomotives, rollingstock, buildings and scenery on display as well as a range of railway drawings, photographs and other paraphernalia. On top of this, SARMA have gone the extra mile and will be displaying their massive HO scale exhibition layout on Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th of January!

Grab your family and come check out the wold of railways at this special event.

A weekend of model railways!

Golden Grove Arts Centre will this weekend be home to dozens of model railways as they host the biannual RailShow. Doors open tonight 15 April from 5-9, Saturday 16th from 9.30 – 5.00pm and Sunday 9.30 – 4.00pm. Model Railways are a great hobby for all ages, and especially with Winter encroaching, a constuctive way to spend some indoor time. After you’ve visited the exhibition check out some of the resources the library has on model railroading, from books to magazines and DVDs. We have a large collection on trains in general too!
