Event description

Description

An exciting exhibition of twenty high class model railway layouts with many trade stands, other attractions and demonstrations of modelling techniques. The layouts are in a wide variety of scales, and show railways of different periods and countries. There are many finescale exhibits of exceptional quality for the serious modeller, and also layouts to appeal to the wider public and particularly the children. Some layouts will be available for visitors to operate and there is a free to enter children's competition to win an exciting prize!

Advance ticket holders have a dedicated entrance, beating the queues, and are admitted before the general public.

Up to three children under 16 are admitted free with each adult ticket.

The exhibition venue is only a 3 minute walk from Piccadilly mainline and Metrolink tram station, Chorlton Street coach station, and there is ample parking nearby.

Why not combine a vist to our exhibition with a trip to Greater Manchester Museum of Transport, M8 8UW, or a visit to Manchester's acclaimed Christmas Street Markets?
