The Winnipeg Model Railroad Club's Klinic Karnival

The Winnipeg Model Railroad Club is hosting their Klinic Karnival at 
Westworth United Church, 1750 Grosvenor Avenue, on 
Friday, January 13 at 7:30 pm

Cost? FREE!!

Everyone is welcome to come see the model railroad experts in action!

From making trees, weathering wood and rolling stock, stringing telegraph wires, using cardstock for buildings, doing graffiti, constructing laser kits, making static grass, the list goes on. 

Each modelling 'station' will feature one clinic and you're free to roam to see them all. 

This kind of program is very popular with club members and I'm sure you'll pick up on lots of new tips, tricks and how-to information.

Snacks and drinks will be available. 
Contact Morgan Turney at 668-0168 or 

The Klinic Karnival is also a good time to see what the WMRC is like. If you find yourself inspired by the presentations and want to create something to enter in their upcoming contest, well, join and enter.

Other special meetings and events planned by The Winnipeg Model Railroad Club:

February - Auction: Great deals on model railroad equipment

March 10 and 11 - Annual Spring Open House / Model & Photo Contest 
displays and exhibits
Westworth United Church

April - Creating realistic scenery 

From September to April, on the second Friday of each month at 7:30 pm, the WMRC holds meetings at Westworth United Church, 1750 Grosvenor. 
They're always happy to welcome new members. 

Afraid you'll be overwhelmed by techy jargon? 
Not to worry. 
There are members of all ages and skill levels. They have ongoing table clinics where you can learn how to make your models look just like the real thing. 
There's also a lending library (books & videos).

Travel and photos more your speed? 
Most meetings feature a power point presentation or two, the subject matter ranging from professional model railroad displays to scenes from a rail-fan's ride.
