Nelson’s Model Railway Exhibition


Our Next Exhibition is

23 - 24 March 2024


About Us

We are a registered non-profit organisation and after paying out expenses of each show any excess monies are given to like-minded railway groups such as the Nelson Railway Society at Founders operating a heritage railway at Founders Park and the Nelson Society of Modellers at Tahunanui. We also do donate to community groups such as the Fifeshire Foundation.

The committee members are from the International Railway Modellers of Nelson, a “loose association” of like-minded folk who enjoy all aspects of railway modelling regardless of what country their model railway is set in.

The group meets once a month at various members home layouts to compare notes on one-another’s progress in their model building, or to glean help on some issue that is a problem for them at the time. The common

denominator being - “railway modelling.”  The show itself is an independent operation, associated only in that the organisers are members of the group.

So when the Exhibition comes round, volunteers are called for to go on a roster for duty to man two shifts of four per day to watch over the layouts and to guide the public in cases of emergencies as well answer queries.
