Model Railway Exhibition

June 16 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

£5.00 – £11.00
A view of a model railway

Admire the models set amongst the real thing in our Engine House. You can also travel on a full-size steam train.

There is also the opportunity to drive a full-size locomotive, as we will be operating a footplate experience on one of our locomotives – when did you last do that at a Model Railway Exhibition? A suggested donation of £5 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.

Except for the footplate experience all areas of the exhibition and the train ride are accessible to visitors with disabilities.

We are expecting up to fifteen layouts in a variety of scales: O, OO, EM, N, P4, T & 009 at least. Layouts will include: Colinton (P4), Knaresborough (4mm), Oxforth East (OO & 009), Millfield Yard (N), Saltaire (T) and Minimis (EM)

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

Traders will include Going Loco, Helm Models & Hobbies, Leigh Models and Hobbies 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.
