An exclusive change to get up close and personal with one of the UK’s most popular exhibition layouts – The Model Railway Club’s 2mm scale “Copenhagen Fields“. Spend around 45 minutes meeting the team who have created the layout, hear about the journey over the last 4 decades and get a chance to look at the suburb modelling close up, go behind the scenes and drive the trains.
 
It can be really difficult to get close enough to see the details on Copenhagen Fields at an exhibition; it’s all rather frustrating for visitors to shows.  The MRC is therefore offering an opportunity for a small number of people to get a personal viewing of the layout fully up and running under exhibition conditions at Keen House. There will be no front barriers and you will be able to get behind the scenes, even under them, to find out how the layout is built and see parts if it that are never visible under normal show conditions. There could even be opportunities to drive the Flying Scotsman through Belle Isle, Copenhagen tunnel and the Holloway Bank on the journey north to Edinburgh, or carefully bring the Silver Jubilee into the Cross. The public also never see the best view from the operating panels at each end, looking along the length of the layout. Many new features have been added over the last twelve months; notably, York Road tube station and the Kings Cross goods sheds. Visitors observing the big scene will also hear about the area’s history and the tricks, tips and tales of layout construction and exhibiting will be explained – effectively 45 minute guided tours by Tim Watson and the CF team who will do their best to answer any questions arising in our small group discussions.
 
Book your place today.

      Sadly we have had to cancel the 2021 Fareham RailEx - but not for the obvious reasons...
       
      There is building work going on at Fareham Leisure Centre to provide a new entrance into the centre which effectively writes off sensible access to the lower level where the bulk of the exhibition takes place.
       
      We are expecting to be back in 2022 subject to the venue operators being willing to have us back in their glitzy new building and announcements will be made in the usual places once the dust settles.  In the meantime we may organise a series of "pop-up" events around Fareham town centre and the outlying shopping areas and community halls.  Details will be posted here and on UKMODELSHOPS as we arrange them.
