2018 Open Day

Newport MRS in association with NAGNAG (the Newport and Gwent Neighbourhood Area Group of the Scalefour Society) are holding our third biennial* open day on Sunday 29th July 2018 10:30 to 16:00 at Shaftesbury Community Centre in Evans Street, Newport, NP20 5LD (directions here).


The open day isn’t meant to be an exhibition rather an opportunity to chat with fellow modellers and share a few experiences. The layouts won’t be operating as they would at a conventional exhibition giving visitors and club members alike a chance to swap tips and thoughts. Hopefully visitors will have the opportunity to run one or two of their locos too - Finescale O gauge (DC), P4 (DCC) and N gauge (DC) are all covered. 


The format will be similar to previous events (see 2013 and 2015). 


Planned attractions include:

Little Mill Junction P4, DCC

Abergavenny Blackbrook P4, DCC

Brade's Siding, O gauge, DC

Mike Edmunds' American N gauge Roundhouse

Justin Newitt and Rumney Models 

Ian Penberth and Penbits

Richard Evans (of CamKits 4mm Cambrian Railways Transfers and Etched Kits) with part of his new EM Layout Three Cocks


* It's three years since the last one but who's counting!
