EIGHT MILE LONG MODEL RAILWAY & ENGINEERING EXHIBITION

Great Central Railway, in association with the Soar Valley Model Railway Club, are to hold a model railway & engineering exhibition in 2014

The three day model railway & engineering exhibition will be held on Friday 20th June to Sunday 22nd June 2014.  Its GCR’s first ever model railway expo and it promises to be a totally different experience in the model railway world!

The event will be spread over the GCR’s four stations at Loughborough, Quorn & Woodhouse, Rothley and Leicester North, with each station specialising in different areas of the hobby. The eight mile long exhibition will have steam and diesel hauled trains transporting the visitors between the stations with a fast frequent service.

Michael Stokes, Event Organiser for the GCR said “We are really looking forward to hosting this exciting new event in the GCR’s calendar, where visitors will be able to experience the real thing on their way to the various exhibition halls. We will also have on display several of the railway’s award winning preserved carriages and wagons, where visitors will be able to inspect them at close quarters.”

The exhibition will cater for up to 80 layouts of all gauges.  There will be traders, second hand stalls and demonstration stands. Catering will be provided by our themed station cafes and on board buffet carriages.

“This will be a truly unique and memorable experience for enthusiasts and families combining historic reality and the hobby.  People looking to have a stand at the exhibition should contact us early as we expect the demand to be unprecedented.” Michael concluded.
