I wish to advertise the 2014, Perth and District Model Railway Exhibition on Irish Railway Modeller.


For full details of the exhibition please visit the Perth Webpage - http://www.perthmrc.com


This exhibition is a true celebration of Model Railways and is held in:-

The Dewars Centre

Glover Street


PH2 0TH.


The dates for this are:-


Saturday June 28th 10.00 - 5.30.

Sunday June 29th 10.00 - 5.00.


The Dewars Centre is adjacent to Perth Railway Station, and a very short walk from the Perth Bus Station, for those travelling by car, there is ample parking underneath, and beside the Centre. Currently there is no charge to park.


Hope to see many of you there,


David J White.

Great show at Perth this weekend,some great layouts on show with a nice Irish themed O gauge layout Castle Rackrent,lovely models with a great removable roof wagon the pick of them.Great trade support also and the space between the layouts was very user friendly,no problem for wheelchair access which was good to see.Best show for the viewing public in Scotland by far,well done to all involved.

Found the following information on Castle Rackrent - follow the links:-







I had the pleasure of visiting this layout at the owners home five or six years ago. The complete layout is large. Each stations requires one or two people to man it, the trains are run to a set order and all train movements and duties are set out in the station instructions for each train at each station. All points and signals are operated using miniature leavers, furthermore, each train is accepted and dispatched using the correct bell codes from or to the sending and receiving stations.


Hope this information is useful and that the link works.
