For the first time we showed Murranbilla to the Eltham public. Being a local showing it was easy to get ready, especially with our clubrooms being so close.
We played a small part in the Eltham Festival Weekend with two days of showing our layout. We were setup in the Eltham Community centre, with the woodworkers being the main attraction – we had little publicity.
The weekend went well, with no major dramas and a small trickle of people viewing the layout. Being a pure non railway audience, the layout was not “fast” enough for most, but we got positive feedback. Being an open exhibition many trains that would not normally be seen on Murranbilla were being run.
