Next weekend (27-28 March) is the Canberra Model Railway Expo. The Expo is put on by the Canberra Model Railway Club. In previous years, the exhibition was held at the National Hockey Centre in Lyneham. However, this year the show will be at a new venue, Kaleen High School, in the northern Canberra suburb of Kaleen.
I will be attending as both a visitor and an operator. I will be helping out on the Saturday operating the southside Canberra group's layout, Willigobung (Australian, HO scale). On Sunday morning I will be on shift with the local NMRA model railway exhibition layout (US, HO scale).
As usual, I hope to catch up with modellers from Canberra and Sydney at the exhibition.
And if you are coming to the Canberra Model Railway Expo from Sydney (or outside of Canberra, for that matter) make a weekend of your trip and spend some time at the National Gallery. The National Gallery will still be hosting the Masterpieces from Paris exhibition, featuring classic art from Cezanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, and paintings from other impressionist and post-impressionist artists on show. The exhibition is truly magnificent.
So, make a weekend of it you people from Sydney and Melbourne, and visit Canberra for the Canberra Model Railway Expo and enjoy some fine art as well.
