Grampians Model Railroaders hosted its 21st annual model train exhibition at the weekend.
Organisers said the 2019 exhibition was 'exceptional' with a lot of visitors attending.
"We aren't sure on final numbers but we think it would be around the 1500 people attended the event," exhibition manager Stuart Cray said.
"We've had some great feedback. Both exhibitors and visitors have said they love the weekend.
"A lot of people have already booked in to come back again next year and had enquiries about some new layouts who are interested in coming next year."
Mr Cray said despite the cold weather, he thought it was better than previous years. "It wasn't too bad despite the cold," he said.
"Most years it's raining. The cold could of helped us out with everyone wanting to get somewhere warmer."
Mr Cray said the group will now turn their sights into hosting an official opening night for its new place to call home, the goods shed at Stawell Railway precinct.
