A great day on Sunday 5th June at the Mini Model Railway exhibition at the Railway Museum in Bassendean! Glorious winter Perth weather ensured a big crowd and a marvelous time was had by all!

Sadly the annual WA Model Railway Exhibition at Claremont Showgrounds over the June long weekend has been cancelled for the third year running (due to uncertainty surrounding public health restrictions), so Rail Heritage WA in conjunction with the WAMRC are taking the opportunity to hold a ‘Mini Model Railway Expo’ on Sunday 5th June.
This event was a big success last year and is sure to be even better this year!

With the sad cancellation of the annual Perth Model Railway Exhibition for the second year running due to COVID-19, Rail Heritage WA in conjunction with the WAMRC and several other model railway club will be holding a “Mini Model Railway Expo” at the Rail Transport Museum in Bassendean on Sunday 6th June 2021.
For more details, please see the poster below.
RailFest is happening again on Sunday 11th October! This year however will be a bit different due to COVID-19 restrictions. Admission is capped at an absolute maximum of 1200 people, with 1100 tickets available for pre-sale over staggered entrance times at TryBooking (https://trybooking.com/BLLOS). Tickets at the door will be extremely limited so buying your tickets ahead of time is highly recommended!
RailFest is on again as usual on the last Sunday of the October school holidays. This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Railway Museum so promises to be a big one!
As discussed at the last general meeting, a wonderful piece remembering early members of the club, Sid & Yvette Harvey, has been written by life member Don Finlayson — thanks Don!
By a terrific stroke of coincidence, a few months ago a member of the public gave us the above newspaper clipping above from May 1963 which is directly relevant to the story. Head over to the Harveys’ page to read all about it.
(repeat of a previous post — but now less than a week away!)
