Thunderbolt Models are having a swap meet event in Coventry Market on Saturday 22nd June 10am to 2pm. The club will be attending and will be going with a view to selling off surplus stock.

We have the following Open Day this year:

  • An Open Weekend coinciding with the Heritage Open Weekends around Coventry. This Year we will be open Saturday/Sunday 7th/8th of September 2024.

Free Admission for these events from 10am. Come up and see our layouts and talk to club members.  Four large and several small layouts in a variety of scales covering the 30s to the present day.  Special exhibits for the children to see and interact with.

Teas and Coffee served. Please note access to the club room is up three flights of narrow stairs and will be impossible for wheelchair users.

Come and watch trains running on our three large layouts and several smaller ones.  Children are welcome and have their own layouts to play with.   Members will be on hand to demonstrate and explain the layouts.

Other layouts can be seen being built, illustrating everything from modelling skills to computer control.

We welcome questions about railway modelling and railways in general.  If you have a problem with your trains we might be able to help.

Look forward to seeing you there.
