In an ambitious move, the Darling Downs Model Railway Club Inc. has begun development of a complete Model Railroading Complex within the grounds of the Toowoomba Showgrounds, stage one has been in operation for a short time now and has shown the community that the hobby of Model Railways is an interesting and expansive hobby that can offer activities of interest to many people.
With large operating layouts in N (Byers Junction) and HO (Jamestown) Scales, you will be in awe at what is before you. As well as the two main attraction layouts, there is a smaller N scale layout (Twin Falls) and a demonstration layout showing the howto's of creating your own miniature masterpiece.
The Museum aspect of the display is directed at not only model trains, but also features some real world 1 to 1 size Memorabillia.
Model Trains are depicted from way back in the Early Clockwork era, through many stages of development, leading up to the latest in Model Railroading Technology.
The Model Railway Museum & Display Centre has been carefully designed to be visitor friendly, with stroller and disability access catered for, there are nearby toilet facilities and we have on hand a variety of cold drinks and chocolates at very reasonable prices.
We also cater for the enthusiasts and beginners with a range of DVD's, Model Trains, Accessories and Collectables.
Members are on hand from 2pm on Saturday Afternoons performing work on the displays and environs (you are most welcome to call in and take a look, no guarantees that anything will be operating though), the Museum & Display Centre is generally fully functional whenever there is a Major Showground Event, at these times, we appreciate a Gold Coin Donation for entry, of course, all displays will be operating and constant Railroad related Videos/DVD's will be screening.
The Members of the Darling Downs Model Railway Club Inc. welcome your attendance at the Model Railway Museum & Display Centre where we are sure you will enjoy everything on offer, there is a long way to go to achieve our ultimate goal, we hope to share progress with you all in this great Toowoomba Community Endeavour.
