Miniature trains from across the country will roll into Lavington this weekend for the annual Model Railway Show.
Murray Railway Modellers host the event at the Mirambeena Community Centre which showcases miniature railway models which will include 81-year-old Peter Prewett who will show his final layout.
"The layout is called Thames Valley, it is a HO scale freelance layout and it took me over 3000 hours to finish," Mr Prewett said.
"This is my first time at the Albury show but my fourth layout."
Event coordinator Grant Myers said the two-day event will feature displays, trade stalls, layouts and a photo competition.
"We have trade stalls coming from Sydney, Melbourne, and regional NSW and Victoria," he said.
"We are hoping to get 1000 people through the exhibition and it generally ranges from kids right up to people Peter's age.
"It doesn't matter how old you are you can always be into trains."
Mr Myers said model trains is a hobby that can be whatever you want it to be.
"It can be as simple as 10 people sitting around a table watching trains go around right up to a layout like Peter's which take a lot more time and effort," he said.
"We have two layouts that are Thomas the Tank Engine and one set in the 1950s so there really is something for everyone."
The show is open to the public 9am-5pm Saturday and 10am-4pm Sunday.
Entry is $10, $8 for concession and children under 16 are free when accompanied by an adult.
