Model Railway day at UFTM

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone:

 

 

This year, the bi-annual Model Railway Day at Cultras takes place on Saturday 10th November in the Railway gallery at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, from 10am - 5pm.
 
The event is organised for the Museum by the Friends of Cultra with support from Ards and North Down Borough Council, P&O Ferries and Peco/Railway Modeller.
 
There will be over 30 layouts and associated exhibits; amongst the Irish layouts will be Andy Cundick's Castlederg (OOn3), the Ulster Model Railway Club's Lisburn (OO gauge), another working model of
 
Lisburn built out of Lego by Ian Marshall and complete with NIR trains, South Dublin Model Railway Society's Kildare Town (OO gauge), William Redpath's Portadown (OO gauge), Curracloe (N gauge)
 
from the Model Railway Society of Ireland, Michael O'Connor's T-Trak Impressions of Ireland (N gauge), Tony Ragg's Stanfording (O gauge) and a display of Irish O gauge locomotives scratch-built by
 
Phil Aspinwall, including a couple of proposed locomotives which were never built.
 
The usual entrance fee is charged by the Museum and seeing fine models in among their real life counterparts is always a treat.
 
Colm

Had the privilege of being invited two years ago with Arigna Town and if there is a finer venue anywhere for a model railway show, I've yet to see it. Utterly fabulous to be surrounded by real engines and met 100s of lovely people. SE England to Belfast for a one day show was quite an adventure, but so worth it. The museum itself is stunning - add in a quality model show and you have a super day out.

Had a great time in Cultra at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum model railway day with my SVLR layout which was very well received by the show visitors.  It was a very good show with all the various layouts set amongst the 12" - 1' exhibits.
