EXHIBITIONS

 

You will find Dave and Rachael at most of the local model railway shows; sometimes with the Gas Cupboard Trade Stand; sometimes with their own layouts; Wisteria Collop, Devil’s Bridge or Sydney Gardens and sometimes just wandering around the fantastic array of superb, intricate and beautiful layouts that this hobby is currently producing.

Below is a list of the recommended local shows, and some from further away that we are involved with.

Come and say hello, there’s always time for a chat…. 

Show information taken from the very excellent www.ukmodelshops.co.uk - a superb resource for the model railway hobby.

The Trowbridge shop will still be open as usual when we are attending exhibitions.
