Update 7th April

Following the postponement from 4th March due to weather conditions we now have a new date for the Open Day - Sunday 29th July 2018

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


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 (DCC or DC, 31.2 mm), 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

Bwthyn y Rhosod, O gauge, operated with R/C Battery-powered locos or DCC (see below)

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)


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