RHYL & District Model Railway Club is to hold an exhibition in Prestatyn, in what will be its first big show since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Railway modellers from across North Wales and further afield will come together to celebrate their hobby and find inspiration among the other layouts on display at the event.

The exhibition will be held at Christ Church and Community Hall, High Street, Prestatyn on June 29, running from 10.30am to 4pm.

Admission costs £5 for adults, and is free of charge for accompanied children (up to 15 years old).

The exhibition will feature 12+ working layouts in "N" to "O" gauges (including narrow gauge,) from the club and many of its friends, plus modelling demonstrations, stalls, and light refreshments.

Full wheelchair access is available, while visitors can find out more about the friendly club, which meets twice-weekly.

Exhibition organiser Martyn Wild said: "We are really excited to be holding our show again, for the first time since the COVID pandemic.

“Previously, our show was held in December each year, but we have decided to go forward with a summer show.

“We hope to show visitors that, far from dying out, the model railway hobby is, in fact, thriving.

“The hobby actually enjoyed a resurgence during the pandemic, as many people found themselves stuck at home with little to occupy their time.

“Although it is true that many modellers now connect through social media rather than in physical model railway clubs as a result of this, we hope to show that the social experience of club membership still brings huge positivity and benefits to those involved.

“Without clubs, most model railway exhibitions up and down the country simply would not happen."
