One Model Railway Club

The model railway club for railway staff

10th Anniversary Needham Market
Model Railway Exhibition

Sunday, 24th September 2017 10.30am-4pm (last admission 3.30pm)

We organise an annual model railway exhibition, which has been held at Needham Market Community Centre since 2008.

This year's exhibition will feature layouts in various gauges/scales, trade stands selling new and secondhand rolling stock and scenics, societies and our popular hands-on modelling demonstrations.

NEW FOR 2017: FREE ADMISSION for accompanied children.

We are pleased that we will be joined by Haddon Bank which has featured on the front cover of both Model Rail and Hornby magazines.

Appearing for only the second time is our own layout Weihnachtsstadt (Christmas Town), an HO gauge tramway layout depicting several Christmas Markets surrounded by half-timbered buildings, featuring many moving features and internal lighting.

As this will be our 10th anniversary exhibition we are running a competition that a number of model railway clubs are entering. The entries will be judged by the public on the day of the show.

A free car park is available, and we are easily accessible by public transport. Refreshments, light lunches and homemade cake will be served throughout the day.

To get an idea of what to expect, why not take a look at our past exhibitions, including our recent 2016 exhibition?

We pride ourselves in being a friendly show suitable for train enthusiasts and families alike.

We look forward to seeing you!
