With the world of railway modelling expanding every day the potential skills involved are growing all the time. The Chiltern Model Railway Association’s Interactive Modellers Workshop is here to help. We have assembled a group of experts in one place to advise and help you.
Ever wondered how they manage to fit speakers in such a small space? How to solder wires to the track? What skills 3D printing involves? Or even how one crafts scenery together? We are bringing together experts on Kit Construction, Electronics, Baseboard construction, Scenic design, as well as insurance, valuation and traders.
We can help with the answers to these, and many other, questions. With a small number of layouts and trade stands it is a relaxed atmosphere in which you can sit down and have one to one conversation and, hopefully, solve some problems and learn some new skills.

    • 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.

    • Railex 2019 Model Railway Exhibition
      By Kingzance,
         It has been some time since I last went to an exhibition and this one, whilst more than an hour away from me with no direct public transport route available, offers a wide range of suppliers / trade stands and some of the layouts that I have found inspirational from the modelling press. Not being as large as Warley, I feel it will be much more "do-able" in one full day whereas anything larger and you feel you have missed part of it. I will be ordering bits from a few suppliers (Alan Gibson, Green Scene, ModelU at least) in advance so I can pick up my needs on the day.
    • Guildford 'O' Gauge Group open day
      By paftrain,
         For some unknown reason it has appeared on the wrong day! It should read 7th April NOT 9th. Could mods please correct this?
    • The 6th Chris Kedgeley Memorial Skills Day
      By NorthHighlander,
         An excellent day. I was invited late to attend as a demonstrator and I didn’t get much chance to look around which is a very positive thing. I took along one board from Tregaron Upper plus the fiddle yard. The TU board is 41 years old and at the end of the day I ran the first loco on it EVER! Thanks to Jim’s Summers, Mackenzie and Pairman and Richard Chown for helping me. Got home at midnight 50 and crashed out on Sunday!
