Throughout the year, Ayrshire Railway Preservation Group attends various model railway shows and other external events to increase awareness of our railway project, and of course, to help raise funds.


This can be a very effective way in which to increase public awareness of ARPG and the Scottish Industrial Railway Centre, and we actively encourage potential and existing members to become involved, and assist at running our Sales and Information Stand at these exhibitions.


If you would like to help out at a show, please contact -


ARPG Secretary, Gordon Thomson, on 01292 313 579.

Please call in the evening, if possible.
