MRC at London Model Engineering Show

We are back at Alexandra Palace with a stand at the LMEE on 20-22nd January 2017. Our theme this year is "Electric Power", which includes a section of our new OO gauge model of Ingatestone which has 25kV overhead electricifcation. As usual our team of members will be demonstrating the creation of model locomotives, structures, track and layout elements in various scales - tramway modelling will also be represented. Below is a taster of some of the models on display.

We look forward to seeing you there on stand P, and again at the London Festival of Railway Modelling on 25/6 March.
