The club runs an annual exhibition every year on a Saturday in mid February at the local leisure centre. It's one of the largest one-day model railway shows in the area and known for the quality and variety of the exhibits.
We cancelled our 2022 exhibition earlier in the year but hope to return to normal in 2023.
If you want to contact our exhibition manager regarding our exhibitions or invites for club layouts to others please use the details in the 'contact us' section of this website or in the footer below.
We have decided to hold an open day this year in lieu of our normal exhibition which will showcase club layouts and modelling and give people an opportunity to meet club members and find out more about us. It will be a smaller event but include a range of layouts and modelling in a range of differing scales, gauges and size some of which have been n the modelling press so well worth a visit.
More details along with any changes to the planned event or who's attending will be shown on further down this page
