The Model Engineering Rally CANMOD 2014 was held in Christchurch from 2-6 January 2014, hosted by the Canterbury Society of Model Engineers Club.
Held every two years at a different clubs facilities in New Zealand, the 5 days of activities see all National affiliated clubs and several International clubs or representative members attending.
As well as a huge variety of locomotives, steam, petrol and electric, there are usually static displays of a range of miniature engines, along with junior and senior competitions for convention attendee's to solve and present engineering solutions to problems posed.
Mike visited this Convention, but without our loco. It was cheaper and easier this time to visit as a guest member rather than with our loco.
