BRITAIN’S BIGGEST VIRTUAL MODEL RAILWAY SHOW RETURNS!

Back by popular demand, we’re delighted to announce that the next instalment of our #BigWORshow event will take place this winter, across the weekend of December 4-5, 2021.

Now well established, the World of Railways Virtual Exhibition is hugely popular, drawing more visitors than any model railway show in the UK, and this event is set to be our most entertaining yet!

 

Like before, the #BigWORshow will feature a compelling selection of fantastic layouts created by talented modellers. The exhibits will feature N, 2FS, 3mm, OO, EM, and O scales, with something for all tastes!

 

Popular features that made the previous show a success will remain, including our live feed, which will be populated with new content at least every 10 minutes!

 

There’ll be competitions galore across the two days, practical demonstrations from well-respected modellers, interviews with some of the biggest names in the hobby, and much more.

 

We’re really excited to welcome everyone to our official opening on Saturday, December 4 at 09:30 GMT for two days of fantastic model railway entertainment and exciting challenges – don't forget to tell your friends.

 

It’s a weekend not to be missed. If you haven’t done so already, pop the date in your diary, subscribe to our weekly newsletter and follow our social channels.

Stay tuned as we reveal more exciting details soon!

What's the intent of purpose of that statement please?

Sorry, the intent was to express disappointment; it was phrased badly and sounds as though I was taking the mick which wasn't the intention. I have been looking forward to the Peterborough show since the last one was cancelled due to the Covid emergency and was wondering earlier in the week when the announcement would be made. Wait for next year.

Still planned is Doncaster in February, not too far up from Peterborough on the old LN&E.

 

In March there is the London Festival of Railways at Ally Pally as well.

We have previously said we wouldn't be holding Peterborough this year. Doncaster in February and Ally Pally in March will be going ahead (pending the obvious).

 

The virtual show will bring many features we can't do at a physical event so everyone wins. We've already been out and about filming some content and there's much more to do yet.

Possibly. But don't hold me to it.

 

Disappointment is never a pretty look.

In that case I must be pretty disappointed...most all of the time....

I must admit to looking forward to this.

 

I was sort of expecting, "real shows starting again", pushing this "covid response" show aside but I there might just be space for both.

I spend between 1.5 and 2.5 hours attending a show in person, BUT I quite happily sit all day through these virtual shows.

Kev.

As indicated I am married, disappointed is my default setting!
