Middleton Railway, The Station, Moor Road, Hunslet, LEEDS, LS10 2JQ
Organised by, and all proceeds to, the Middleton Railway Trust
Open 10:00 to 17:00 each day (steam passenger trains operating regularly between 11:00 and 16:00), light refreshments available in the shop/café.
Admire the models set amongst the real thing in our Engine House and you can travel on a full size steam train. There is also the opportunity to drive a full size locomotive, now in their third century of operation at Middleton, as we will be operating a footplate experience on one of our locomotives – when did you last do that at a Model Railway Exhibition? Just £10 and no need to book in advance, just turn up on the day. Please note that you must be at least 18 years old and not older than 76 to take part in the footplate experience.
With the exception of the footplate experience all areas of the exhibition and the train ride are accessible to visitors with disabilities.
Exhibition/Engine House/Platform only
Exhibition/Engine House plus unlimited train rides:
We are expecting up to 12 layouts in a variety of scales: O, EM, OO, HO, HOe, T & 009 at least. Layouts will include: Dornochbahn (HOe), Deffors (O), John Street Yard (EM), Low Moor (T), Reevy Road West (OO) & Roanoke Roundhouse (HO)
Reminding us that model railways are fun too we have vintage Tri-ang and some ‘hands on’ layouts – all upstairs in our ‘play room’!
Traders will include Keith’s Model Railways, Helm Models & Hobbies, Leigh Models and Hobbies, Going Loco and some second hand tables.
This is an event for all the family – not just the modeller. When the non-modellers have exhausted the facilities we offer at Moor Road we have Middleton Woods and Park at the top of the line, the Tulip Retail Park is opposite and the White Rose Shopping Centre is just a short distance away. We pride ourselves on a welcome for all – come and experience it for yourselves.
