RMCQ Open Days and Buy & Sells

Sunday 1 November 2020

& Sunday 16 May 2021

COVID.  The club will hold an Open Day and Buy & Sell on Sunday 1 November 2020 at our Brendale clubhouse. Entrance is subject to visitors complying with our COVIDSafe plan. You will be required to supply your contact details and maintain strict social-distancing. Handwash will be available. Masks are recommended but not supplied by us. For those who attended last year, you will notice that more of the tables will be located outside. The activity might be called off at short notice if the government COVID restrictions worsen, or if the weather forecast is particularly bad. Any cancellation will be advertised on the club website, so check this during the days leading up to the event. We hope to see all of our old friends plus lots of families and newcomers.

Open Day.  Come and see our model railway layouts in action. Check out the progress on our layouts. Watch passenger and freight trains wind their way along 600 metres of railway track through miniature towns, tunnels, bridges and scenery, on our double-deck HO and N scale layouts. See our G gauge garden railway, and check out our workshops and other club facilities.

Buyers. Snap up a bargain from a large number of tables of new and pre‑loved items. Free locomotive testing is available in our workshops to give you piece of mind.

Sellers. Your surplus is someone else’s Treasure.” Sell your unwanted model trains, kits, buildings, figures, memorabilia, books, DVDs, magazines, etc. Just $20 for a large, covered table, or $15 for an uncovered table (feel free to provide your own gazebo). Pre-book by providing your name, number of tables required, covered/uncovered, email and mobile number to the coordinator. Covered sites will be allocated in the order that bookings are received. You can also just turn up on the day, but tables normally sell out and gazebos are unlikely to be available.
