Model railway exhibition set to come to Milton Keynes

The Milton Keynes Model Railway Society (MKMRS) exhibition weekend will take place on 15th and 16th February.

Over 30 detailed model railways will be on show at Stantonbury Leisure Centre. 

A range of trade support and local organisations will be attending, with there being a miniature railway for children to ride on.

Ian Bartlett, Secretary of MKMRS, said: "We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to our show and with more than 30 layouts, wide trade support and even a miniature ride-on railway, it promises to be a really special weekend.

"Model railways are popular with people of all ages and our show is an ideal day out whether you come alone or as a family group. In fact, it might even be something different to do for Valentine’s weekend!”

An ex-London Transport Routemaster bus will operate every 30 minutes between Milton Keynes Central rail station and Stantonbury Leisure Centre. 

The show opens at 10:00 on both days, closing at 17:00 on the Saturday (15/2) and 16:30 on the Sunday (16/2).

Tickets can be bought in advance via the MKMRS website or at the door (cash only). Full details of the exhibition and bus service can be found at www.mkmrs.org.uk/exhibitions.
