They are running their large 0 gauge layout WRENMERE alongside their original 00 layout following recent alterations, plus their new portable 00 layout. In addition, they now have their N gauge layout 'Oldfield North' back up and running after a rewire alongside their latest layout Cannon's Wharf in 009 gauge. This will be accompanied by their 009 exhibition layout 'St Margaret's Quay'. Visiting will be a 7mm narrow gauge layout plus examples of other gauges of model railway rolling stock.

This year younger visitors will be able to operate locomotives with sound on a specially constructed layout using both hand controller and a tablet.

As usual there will be items of model railway rolling stock for sale along with books, DVDs and other railway memorabilia.

Within walking distance of the hall is the Dusty Miller where your hosts Adam & Kristine will offer their regular menu at the canal side location.

This year the event is supported by '3 Counties Connected Community Rail Partnership' and their representative will be in attendance. Details of their work can be found on their website.

Most recently 3 Counties were involved in the installation of school artwork in the shelters on Wrenbury Railway station.

The Wrenbury club has a reputation for its friendly weekly meetings regardless of your skill or knowledge of the hobby and members are always prepared to give helpful advice. Meetings are held every Wednesday between 7pm and 10 at the above Hall address. More details can be found on their website. Visitors are always welcome.
