The club arranges a number of "Buy & Sells" at our clubrooms throughout the year.
At these events, people from all around come out to either buy or to sell model railway equipment and associated items, such as books, magazines etc. There are always some bargains to be found at these events.
Following the cancellation of our 2020 and 2021 model train shows due to Covid crowd limits, the RMCQ has been searching for a larger local venue for next year. We are excited to announce that the following event details for 2022. Please save the date in your diaries:
South Pine Model Train & Hobby Expo
Sat - Sun 9-10 July 2022
South Pine Sports Complex
620 Cribb Rd, Brendale Qld 4500
Getting very tech out there.
Although our 2021 Expo was cancelled, the raffle was not as a few tickets had already been sold. The results of the draw were:
We would like to thank all of those from the other clubs and public who supported us by buying some raffle ticktes. We made a small profit from the raffle, which overall meant we roughly broke even following cancellation of the 2021 Expo.
For those who are wondering, Chris, who is not a club member, purchased a large number of tickets to help the club overcome our potentail losses. Not only is he a great guy, but also lucky!
