It’s the best of two miniature worlds this weekend at the Murray Railway Modellers show – for the first time, Bricks on the Border will be adding to the exhibition.

Eleven of the lego group members will be at the Mirambeena Community Centre in Lavington with their displays.

Neil Strachan has been collecting pieces for lego trains since 2000.

“My display took about four weeks to create,” he said.

“Lego have been doing trains since the mid 1950s in various different ways and methods.

“In fact they recently put out a special set celebrating 50 years of lego trains for employees and factories.”

Mr Strachan hoped the lego addition would bring a larger crowd to the event, adding to five other yearly public displays from Bricks on the Border.

“It’s something different – I hope everyone comes along,” he said.

Visitors can also look forward to Star Wars-inspired scenes, replicas of Albury buildings and model railways from different regions of Australia.

Check out the action from 9am to 5pm on Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
