Join us for this special family-friendly weekend dedicated to model trains and layouts with the added draw of exploring our fabulous collections in the Museum.

This is the Great British Model Railway Show, sponsored by Hornby Hobbies – a huge name in the modelling world. If you’re a fan of these hobbies in any capacity, we’re giving you a rare opportunity to come and see all kinds of model railway layouts along with plenty of specialist traders. Head to the modelling skills area to find out how to weather locomotives and coaches, paint scenery, make scratch built models and get tips for your layout. Our show is one of the few large model railway shows in the calendar and one of the biggest in the Midlands. This might be the chance for you to make a special addition to your model railway collection or the layouts being exhibited may inspire your own creations.

This is a perfect event for families who are looking for something a bit different for the children. Not only can they enjoy looking at the various layouts and model trains on show but you can also explore the British Motor Museum which is home to over 350 historic British cars. Entry to the Museum is included in show tickets. We also have hot meals, sweet treats and refreshments in our Junction 12 Café.

The show also includes:

- 30 layouts of various scales
- 25 specialist traders
- Live steam
- Junction 12 Café with hot food and refreshments
- Hornby Collectors' Club Members' Lounge
