Stawell Model Railway Exhibition and Ararat Model Train Show for 2021 will not going ahead and hope to see you all in 2022
We are planning on having open days or mini trains shows at the Stawell railway good shed with different layouts and a traders through the year.
The Grampian Model Railroaders are a Stawell based model train club that was formed in 1996, we have about 50 members. People from anywhere are welcome to apply to join the club.
We meet every Thursday night at 7.30pm in our newly renovated Stawell Goods Shed 15 Wakeham St, Stawell with the first Thursday of each month being a BBQ night starting at about 6pm - BYO food - soft drinks can be purchased at the club.
Visitors are more than welcome to come along and see what we do, bring your own locos and rolling stock and run them on the club layouts.
The Grampian Model Railroaders have held a model train exhibition each year in Stawell in the month of July since 1999, this exhibition covering more than 1000 square meters it is well worth a look with more that 20 layout from the very small to the very large. You can also buy most things you will need for your very own layout at the exhibition.
In 2018 The Grampian Model Railroaders also started a smaller model train show in Ararat. The Ararat Model Train Show is mostly made up of our member's layouts and as we have so many we are able to change them around each year. This is a good show to come to and talk with our members and see what they are building at home.
The Grampian Model Railroaders exhibit layouts at exhibitions across Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales.
We will have about 6 layouts with 2 traders and if it goes well we are looking at doing a few more in 2021 with different layouts.
With the Covid 19 restrictions in Victoria there will be a limited to the number of people that we can have in the building and over the 2 days so there might be a wait to get in if it's busy.
We are also planing on having a vintage tractor display outside.
