Model Railway Scenics – with Carol Flavin


Thu 14 Oct 21


7:30pm - 9:30pm

About this event

“I started my railway modelling life in 2017 because of my grandchildren’s enthusiasm and I had no idea how absorbed and engaged I would become. It’s how I came to appreciate my love of making realistic scenery.

Modelling in OO Gauge, Edge Hey & Strines Railway expanded to fill a whole bedroom, and is a layout made from imagination. Sadly lockdown meant I built most of it myself ….  so I sent the grandchildren 52 weekly update videos!!

This led to the GMRC, commissioning of 9 ‘how I did it’ videos, articles in model railway magazines and online interviews, as well as this MRC lecture!”


The lecture starts at 7.30pm, but doors open at 6.30. Our licenced bar has a range of beers, wine, spirts and soft drinks plus snacks.

Guests are welcome, there is no need to book, but please note that there are stairs to the lecture room, and anyone with concerns about accessibility should contact us in advance. There is a voluntary collection, with a suggestion of £3 for non members.
