Following on from my previous blog post, I must mention the NMRA Australia 2009 Convention to be held at Castle Hill (Sydney) between the 2nd and 5th of October. It is the 25th anniversary convention so it too will be a special time. The NMRA convention program is out now. Registrations are being taken for the convention plus orders for commemorative shirts. There are also plenty of layout tours featuring mostly US and Australian prototype model railway layouts.
The dates do clash with the AMRA Sydney Model Railway Exhibition at the Whitlam Leisure Centre in Liverpool. However, I believe there will be time on the Monday available for NMRA convention attendees to make the trip to Liverpool. The Sydney exhibition is returning to the Liverpool venue after a few years away at Hurstville.
The NSW October Labour Day weekend promises to be a very, very busy time.
