Stay tuned as we reveal more exciting developments to be presented at the show, soon.



Following the success of our first #BigWORshow event in July, we’re delighted to announce the dates of our next virtual exhibition.

The sequel to our popular virtual model railway exhibition will be held across the weekend of Saturday, November 7 and Sunday, November 8, 2020.

Re-booted with all-new stars on the back of the widely-acclaimed first exhibition, #BigWORshow will feature more than 30 awe-inspiring layouts in a multitude of popular – and some niche – standard and narrow-gauge scales.

And like last time, we’ll be revealing new models, catching up with your favourite model railway manufacturers, giving away some great prizes and showcasing some great demonstrations from modellers within our hobby.

It’s a weekend not to be missed…

What you may have missed

Following the success of our first #BigWORshow event in July, which drew more than 100,000 visitors to our website over the weekend – more than at any model railway show in the UK – and with such fantastic feedback, we’ve proved the concept of a virtual exhibition works.

This time around, we intend to introduce new features to make the user experience even better. We’re also planning the content to be even bigger and better than before.

Some features that made the previous show a success will, of course, remain, including our live feed, which, like last time, will be populated with new content at least every 10 minutes!

We’re really excited to welcome everyone to our official opening on Saturday, November 7 at 09:30 GMT for two days of fantastic model railway entertainment and exciting challenges. Don't miss it – we'll see you there, virtually, of course!
