Press Release

Perth & District Model Railway Club

The committee and trustees of Perth & District MRC, a charity registered in Scotland No. SCO45282, are pleased to advise that the club will formally merge with the Scottish Model Engineering Trust (www.smet.org.uk), a charity registered in Scotland No. SCO 32308 on April 1st, 2019.

Within the SMET organisation, Perth & District MRC will function as an interest group, the identity of the club being maintained. This merger will ensure the long-term future of the club’s activities and has several advantages:

The club will move, this  summer to new permanent accommodation at the Wester Pickston Railway which is located a few miles west of Perth. As well as room to store and work on our layouts, there is also access to an established workshop and social facilities.

The Wester Pickston Railway is situated in 7.25 acres of countryside and consists of outdoor railways in 7.25” and 5” gauges as well as an established 16 mm scale interest group.

The addition of model railways from gauges N to O will enhance the activities on the site and create a centre of model railway engineering and railway modelling excellence in Scotland. The Wester Pickston Railway is open to the public 4 times per year and at other selected times. The model railways will also be open for viewing during these days.

The well-respected “Celebration of Model Railways” exhibition held annually at the Dewars Centre in Perth will continue as normal, in 2019 the event is to be held on 29th & 30th June. This exhibition has been steadily built up over the last 27 years and its future as one of the UK’s top events is assured.

Built in OO9 this fabulous layout shall be attending Perth Model Railway Exhibition on Saturday June 29th and Sunday 30th 2019, at the Dewars Centre. We hope to see you there!

Eu (Le Treport) Depot SNCF by John Smith and Peter Smith, is an outstanding layout depicting a 1950’s SNCF steam shed and depot. Built in O Gauge the layout features locomotives with lights and live steam. See this layout at the Perth and District Model Railway Club exhibition on the 29th and 30th of June at the Dewars Centre!

Is there any likelihood that Phoenix Paints will be coming?  As I recall, they were due to come last year but for some reason had to pull out.

They are not on the list posted so far, but I appreciate the exhibition manager is still finalising the list of traders.  I'll be at the club tonight and see if there is any update for you.

Sorry Torper looks like Pheonix Paints won't be at Perth this year.

 

Squires will be there, I think they stock Railmatch though.  Harburn and Ellen's Emporium will also be there but I can't recall whose paints they sell.

We are delighted to announce that we are hoping to have David Watson of Dean Park Station opening our show on the Saturday morning.

 

For those who don't know, David has as excellent series of videos on You Tube which include many useful how to type films.

 

Many of us in the Perth club subscribe to his You Tube channel and are looking forward to meeting him.

Harburns have a small stock of both Railmatch and Pheonix Precision (I bought their  last tin of Precision BR coach crimson this week!)

Stan, don't know if this appears when you view the new site but it presents an "Edit this text" item in the area above Perth MRG section.

 

I only mention it, just in case it presents some security vulnerability.

Hi Dave,

 

Thanks for pointing it out. The button appears to be non-functional. I will take it up with our webmaster.

Yet again, looks like it will be an excellent show.

 

Just one word of warning: for anyone who has a long journey, e.g. "south of the border", you might regret visiting it - because it will draw you to keep on coming back!!
