15th Australian Narrow Gauge Convention - looking forward to 2021

24th April, 2020

Welcome to the opening announcement for the 15th Australian Narrow Gauge Convention. 

Planning for this next chapter of our convention has been quietly continuing, while current world events with the COVID-19 situation has meant that announcements were put on hold as we observed how things progressed.  At this time, we will proceed with organisation of this event on the assumption that a considerable degree of normality will return in time for our convention at Easter 2021. 

 

In fact, there is some eagerness from both the committee and known regular attendees to see how the current stay at home guidelines have a positive spin on what we get the pleasure of seeing at this next convention.  With all this extra time while isolated at home, there is plenty of opportunity to get some creative modelling time in at your hobby bench.

The Australian Narrow Gauge Convention has established itself as a great weekend for like minded narrow gauge modelling enthusiast to gather and celebrate our niche' in the hobby.  Expect to see some of the latest narrow gauge railway layouts and displays from around the country, clinics on modelling and railway prototype subjects, beautifully crafted contest efforts, and the latest trader offerings from our supporting hobby suppliers.  The perfect weekend to assemble as a focused modelling community, see what modellers have been creating, share ideas and information, learn from each other, and return home an inspired narrow gauge modeller.

There will be plenty more details to be announced in the coming months, so please check back here regular for the latest updates and inclusions.  In the mean time, stay safe and enjoy your modelling time.

On behalf of the organising committee,

Dan Pickard

15th Australian Narrow Gauge Convention Chairman
