Wexford Model Railway Club are pleased to announce that they are planning to hold an Open Day at St Joseph's Community Centre, Newline Road, Wexford on Sunday 24th October from 11 am to 5 pm (subject to prevailing covid Regulations). We will have a range of club and member layouts on display including "Little Siddington" our premier O gauge layout which now has scenery completed all the way around its 33 feet by 15 feet perimeter with all signals working! An array of traders will be attending including Irish Railway Models and Model Rail Accessories. The main sports hall will provide ample room for social distancing while allowing everyone to enjoy this first post-covid model railway event. Donations will be accepted at the door for WMRC building extension and club funds.

That's brilliant news. Other than my birthday (which is on the 24th September next) didn't think I'd have anything else to look forward to. I'd say that it will be busy. Glad to see that there'll be an 0 scale layout on display, have become a fan of the larger models since my eyesight started to deteriorate.

Additionally, "Prospect Road TMD" (BR diesel outline) in O Gauge will be making it's exhibition debut at the Open Day alongside it's little cousin "Diesel Depot" in OO (CIE outline)!

I've a dang good mind to set sail for Wexford that day. Is this place walkable from Wexford railway station or should I self-guide my own infernal combustion machine?

It's a bit of a hike but normally taxis are available just by the station... Check that train times on Sunday allow you sufficient time at the show. The road to Wexford is mainly motorway now so from South Dublin you should land inside 2 hours.

The Irish Railway Models stand might have new announcements at the show since the Dublin show was cancelled because they sometimes make announcements at shows in the UK (ie Warley 2019). The KUA wagons and Class 37s were announced at Warley 2019 by Accurascale, the sister company to Irish Railway Models.

@Eagles - That's a great idea regarding new anouncements. If the guys at IRM Towers say that they are going to do that then hardline Dubs, like me, might consider travelling outside our comfort zone and go to the Wexford show.

We'll need to bring a few civilised blue flags to put up there, though.......

No worries lads, I'm a Dub living here over 22 years and it is safe to come here. Wexford MRC (founded in 1978) is one of only 3 clubs in ROI so well worth a visit!

We will trust your recommendation, Irishrailwayman...........

(I'm going anyway...!)

Was just looking at the train service - it's perfectly feasible, actually. Methinks I will take the train rather than propelling my infernal combustion vehicle in that direction. Always liked travelling on the Dublin & South Eastern Railway. Might get one of the big 4.4.0s.
