Event Details




HIGHLIGHTS for this year:

Over 80 working, inspirational model railway layouts with full Trade and Society support, and demonstrations of techniques and used in the hobby by experts in their field.

  • Our prototype inspiration this year is the ex GWR Prairie Tank 5164 courtesy of The Erlestoke Manor Fund and the Severn Valley Railway.

  • Trade representation, about 130 traders. Attending are our main sponsors of the exhibition, Bachmann Europe, PECO, Graham Farish, Crecy Publishing, and Hornby, together with a large selection of specialist manufacturers and suppliers to the hobby.

  • Warley National Model Railway Exhibition- often imitated, never bettered and organised by enthusiasts for the benefit of fellow enthusiasts in true club tradition. Voted 'Best Model Railway Exhibition 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2022' in the British Model Railway Awards, so we must be doing something right!
