Virtual Model Railway Show 2021

Wexford Model Railway Club are hosting our Virtual Model Railway Show on our Facebook page again this 2021 Easter weekend (3 - 5 Apil). This is our second virtual event following our popular Easter 2020 Virtual Exhibition.

We hope you join us over the Easter weekend to share photos and videos of your model railways. We will show our club layouts and what our members have been up to over the past year. We would also love to see what progress you have made over the year - please join in wherever you are around the world!

You can still join in after the exhibition has ended. Link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/WMRCVirtualExhibition/

A few shots from Glen Murphy's Roseberry Steam Railway layout.

Mostly built over the last 12 months, it’s a simple 6x4 board with two loops and based on a fictitious heritage line somewhere in Ireland/England with standard and narrow gauge lines in 00 and 009.

Dundalk Works - Model Railway Society of Ireland (4mm) is a representation of the famous railway workshops that served the Great Northern Railway of Ireland. The works were built in 1871 and closed in 1958.

This model has been built over a period of 7 years by members of the MRSI. It has taken an estimated three thousand hours of work to reach its present state and is around ninety percent complete, the most recent additions are the briquette plant near the turntable and extra detail work applied to the main buildings. © MRSI/Tony Mirolo/etc
