    Hampton Court Model Railway Society proudly presents annual show, Tolworth Showtrain on the 9th and 10th November 2019.
    Tolworth Showtrain 2019, covers three halls of the Tolworth Recreation Centre and features 24 working layouts covering both a variety of scales, time-periods and locations, with superb modelling and entertaining operation, including one where children can drive the trains, along with comprehensive Trade support, including one new this year. There are also demonstrators who will give hands on tuition in modelling skills. This is your opportunity to try your hand at something new, age will be no barrier to this, and you will probably have something to take away.
    We aim to provide entertainment for everyone, not just the dedicated enthusiast, and many will remember Roland Emett and his eccentric designs for the Far Tottering and Oyster Creek Railway, this world is admirably brought to life with Mike Walshaw’s layout Scratchy Bottom. Or you may prefer St Ruth, a 2mm scale layout that is almost a model of Penzance.
    On SUNDAY one Child will be admitted FREE with every paying Adult.
    There is a free Bus link from Surbiton station which is served by South Western Railway services. The timetable will be available on the website in early October.
    Several TfL bus services stop within 10 minutes walk of the show.
    The show is fully accessible with everything being at ground level.

    • Warrington Model Railway Exhibition
      By 70000 Britannia,
         Thoroughly enjoyable weekend.  Well presented and organised. Good, freindly atmosphere and interesting range of layouts.  Well worth a visit next year.
    • Mid Wales Model Railway Show, Welshpool
      By steamfinale,
         Excellent show with some superb models and a huge improvement on previous years. A shame there weren't a few more traders!
    • ***Bury St Edmunds MRC 70th anniversary exhibtion***
      By colin penfold,
         This was an excellent show. Congratulations to Bury St Edmunds MRC for putting together such an array of quality layouts including two stars of MRJ - Orford and Templefield. I also really enjoyed Coldfair Green, Coronado Shortline and Cobbolds Wharf.  Brilliant to get so much quality in a smaller, local show. Well done to all
    • Mendip 2019
      By John P.,
         A very mixed show with several scales and prototypes shown. Unfortunately Hook Basin had to cancel on Friday morning.
      Still a good show. Excellent refreshments, easy parking what more could you want? Unless you were expecting any OO stuff,
      there wasn't any!
      I enjoyed being  a part of this show exhibiting Burnham.
       
    • ALSRM Annual Show
      By Donw,
         I have rated this based on last year so anyone knows it should be worth going to. I will update it tomorrow after the event although that will be too late to help anyone. The event always has some excellent layouts and there is a good range of trade stands for 7mm and larger. If you are looking for boxshifters of 00 stuff forget it. but there are some good traders there.
