The Norwegian Railway Club, Bergen branch has again the pleasure of inviting all model railway enthusiasts to our traditional model railway exhibition in October.
The exhibition will take place as usual in the Turnhall at Slettebakken where we have a 1000 square meter floor space at our disposal. The Turnhall is situated directly behind the Bergenshall and can be reached by the light rail, Bybanen, line 1.
Visitors will find an assorted exhibition of model railways to cater for all interests.
We have our large module layout inspired by the Bergen and Voss railway. The layout has prototypical model trains running continuously. Visitors can get a good impression of the atmosphere to be found at Garnes station, the main station on the preserved line of the "Old Voss railway".
Also being exhibited is a large scale American narrow gauge style layout with steam train models as used in garden layouts.
There is also an N-gauge model depicting town and countryside in addition to a digital layout after German fashion.
For the children there is an English layout based on a well known children's program as well as a drive-it-yourself layout.
Our Lego-train enthusiasts will also be there with their layout.
There will be several sales stands, where you can purchase both new and second hand trains and equipment in addition to the Norwegian railway club's information, literature and souvenir-stand.
Should you feel a little peckish, there is a small cafe.
All in all, there is something for children of all ages.
