Wigan Model Railway Exhibition
Robin Park Leisure Centre
Saturday 6th – Sunday 7th October 2018

Hundreds of miniature trains will be running on 30 different model railways at the annual Wigan Model Railway Exhibition.

Wigan’s local model railway club are hosting the event which is in its 51st year.

We bring together a wide selection of model railways depicting the 1920s through to the modern day. So, if you remember the golden age of steam or enjoy something more up-to-date there will be model railways that you will love watching. It is not just British prototypes that are depicted: this year Swiss, French and Australian models also feature.

Exhibitions Manager, Steve visits exhibitions across the country to bring together a wide variety of layouts, “I’m always on the lookout for interesting and entertaining layouts to bring to the show and this year won’t disappoint”.

As well as the layouts, 41 traders will new selling everything you need for your model railway: locomotives, kits, track, tools and accessories.
We also have a range of model making demonstrators, who will be sharing their skills and answering questions.

The exhibition takes place at Robin Park Leisure Centre, opposite the DW Stadium, which is well sign posted if you are not familiar with the area and there is plenty of parking nearby. Free vintage bus trips run to the venue from Wigan North Western Station throughout the day if you are arriving by train, or just fancy a ride!

We are keen to inspire a new generation of young railway modellers so don’t charge for accompanied children, which makes for an affordable family day out. Adult tickets are £10, with discount adult and group tickets available on our website (until 30/09/2018).
