Expo Narrow Gauge 2020


The Greenwich & District Narrow Gauge Railway Society has been organising Expo Narrow Gauge – known as ExpoNG – since 1983. It was the first national all narrow gauge modelling show in the UK and over that time has grown to become Europe’s premier narrow gauge modelling event attracting layouts, traders and visitors not only from the UK and Europe but from further afield – Australia, Japan, Canada and the US.


For the past 4-5 years we have lived with rumours of the redevelopment of our current venue – the White Oaks Leisure Centre in Swanley, Kent. Following last year’s show we finally received formal notice that this redevelopment is likely to start in 2020 with the site to be used for both residential and leisure use.

We cannot gamble on White Oaks being available in October this year either in its current form or as a redeveloped leisure centre with less facilities so clearly need to find a new venue which will be suitable for future shows. 


Although we have already identified a few options, it is clear that there is now little time to arrange a show in October 2020. With the agreement of our members, we have decided not to hold ExpoNG in 2020. This will give us time to take a breather, settle on a new venue and to look at what format future ExpoNGs might follow. 


We hope you will understand our decision. We know that ExpoNG is a big part of the narrow gauge modelling calendar.  We’d like to thank all our visitors, exhibitors and traders who have supported us in the past and look forward to seeing them again in the future.


Any queries regarding this news should be addressed to David Gander, Secretary G&DNGRS (dh.gander@virgin.net) or Stephen Fulljames, Exhibition Coordinator (stephen@fulljames.net).




Note: The Greenwich & District Narrow Gauge Railway Society was formed in 1968 and has organised Expo Narrow Gauge since 1983. The first all narrow gauge modelling event, it now attracts visitors from across the world.


Expo Narrow Gauge is a registered trade mark of the Greenwich & District NGRS.

Thanks for all the hardwork by the organising teams over the years.

As a regular visitor and occasional exhibitor since the days at the Town Hall this has been the must attend if possible show. I will be looking forward to whatever can be arranged in the future.
