Dear Model Train Enthusiast
After successfully finding a new venue and a positive response from clubs and exhibitors to our invitations, we had no idea of the impending crisis which would affect South Africa and the world and how it would change our lives. After three weeks in lockdown and the prospects of another two weeks to go, the effect on all society and life as we know it is incalculable.
The world will never be the same and right now our thoughts are with those who are ill, those who have lost loved ones and those who face retrenchment or other job insecurities.
We are also aware that our government anticipates September will be the peak of the epidemic, coming in at the tail-end of winter, and as a result we feel it would be irresponsible of us to host The Great Model Train Expo 2020 under these circumstances. We’ve therefore made the decision to postpone the event for a year and, with luck, the next TGMTE will be held in September or October 2021, subject of course to the confirmation of the school holidays.
We wish you all the best of health and urge you all to take care, we look forward to seeing you next year!
The Great Model Train Expo 2020.
