Big names planned
Brought to you by the team behind British Railway Modelling Magazine, Garden Rail Magazine, Traction Magazine, RMweb.co.uk and world-of-railways.co.uk, we've partnered up to collaborate with some of the biggest names in model railways, from manufacturers, to influential modellers, YouTube and TV stars. Expect a varied selection of top-quality model railway and prototype content to celebrate all that is great about model railways and their prototype counterparts!
Access all areas
We'll be airing the best in model railway photography, videos and articles on a select number of model railways covering all popular scales and gauges. Expect demonstrations by renowned model railway experts in their field, and evening entertainment across world-of-railways.co.uk and our social media channels – the weekend will be unmissable for fans of model or real railways. Even better, it's completely free of charge – no travel costs, no parking charges, no queuing for entry, and ample viewing time without the pressure of crowds, all from the comfort of your own home.

We know that model railway enthusiasts have missed out on exhibitions for some months now, and it looks set to continue. With social distancing restrictions owing to Covid-19 remaining in place in the UK, this responsible virtual format will provide everyone with fair access to a selection of curated model and prototype railway content. We'll bring everything you'd expect at a model railway exhibition, with bonus evening entertainment, too! We welcome everyone to our official opening on Saturday, July 4 at 09:00 GMT for two days only of fantastic model railway entertainment. Don't miss it – we'll see you there, virtually, of course!
