Midlands Model Railway Club, a non profit club based in the Abbeyleix Heritage Centre, will be holding their second annual show on September 15.

Viscount Lord de Vesci has kindly agreed to perform the opening ceremony.

The club were formed four years ago and at present they do not have funds that allow them to advertise their events. Last year’s show was well received and it gave the club a much needed financial boost, as well as adding to the profile of the Heritage Centre as many that attended the show had never been in the centre before.

Although the club does not have a large number of members, organisers hope that through this year’s show the profile of the club will be raised locally and perhaps help to increase their membership.

For more information, the club’s secretary, Ronnie Gaunt can be contacted on 087 2542528, or email rmgaunt45@gmail.com.
