    Reminding us that model railways are fun too we also have vintage Hornby-Dublo, Tri-ang and Tri-ang Hornby operating.
    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.

  • Recent Event Reviews

    • Perth Model Railway Exhibition 2024
      By BusDriverMan,
         Excellent exhibition, good layouts, good stalls, good chat - some of the aisles were a bit narrow for the Saturday crowd, some congregating at entrypoints making it harder to get in/out of the halls. Spent two or three times my intended budget on stock and tools :) The event is showing as "repeats every day forever" but I suspect it actually ran just two days?
    • French Railways Society Summer Rendezvous
      By ianmianmianm,
         I really enjoyed this. It was well laid out and thoughtfully arranged (Car park being free on a Sunday was a nice touch). Signage from M25 appeared great (although I already knew the venue) and it was a good mix of conti layouts with just enough trade. 
      Only criticism is that some of the tables supplied by the venue were VERY LOW so non self-supporting layouts were difficult to view from above. Maybe have some folding crates for those to sit on might help. 
    • Shrewsbury Festival of Model Railways
      By BobM,
         Absolutely lovely event, friendly, well organised, central location in spectacular St. Mary’s church.
      Easily travelled to by train from Wolverhampton, just a short stroll away into town.
      Wide range of superbly detailed layouts and specialist exhibitors and traders.
      Lovely catering and well organised, very relaxed atmosphere.
      Favourite layout had to be Ashford by Ashley Smith, such love put into it and highly crafted.
      Well done to all 



    • New Forest Model Railway Society - Brockenhurst, Hampshire - Exhibition
      By Robin Brasher,
         Enjoyed exhibition. I came by train and had lunch at the Foresters Arms. I enclose pictures of Pine Wood, Ipleigh Castle, Parts Unknown and Castle Bevan. 
      I was interested to see that the Hornby Terrier locomotives would run on 9" radius curves at Iplegh Castle. The Parts Unknown TT 120 layout was the second exhibition layout I have seen in that scale.

      By John P.,
         Quite easy and fairly straightforward to enter an event.
