The following took place at the 2018 event. Please check back for 2019 updates as we have them confirmed.
The BRM Village is where we’ll be bringing Britain’s fastest-growing model railway magazine to life! It’s the place to find the BRM team, together with regular magazine contributors to get one-to-one modelling advice and take advantage of the magazine’s great show subscription offer or buy the latest copy of the magazine.
BRM features writer Phil Parker will be posing on the stand with the first ever BRM cake box challenge entries and his new layout "Didsbury Green". The layout is being serialised in Jan/Feb/Mar/Spring issues of BRM and will transported to Canada shortly. Come along with your model making questions and have a chat.
Visit the demonstration areas for the opportunity to learn new techniques or ask any questions you might have.

Following on from the successful “Making Tracks” exhibit in 2017, Doncaster Council has announced a follow-up exhibit called “Making Tracks – The Next Stop”. This will include the Doncaster P2 Locomotive Trust and Doncaster Grammar School Collection holding displays.
One of the main displays will show the history and achievement of the engineers from the GNR and later LNER while working at Doncaster Works, known as ‘The Plant’. The Doncaster Museum Service will provide the display. It’s through their achievement that Doncaster’s connection to the railway industry is still strong today.
The Doncaster Grammar School Collection will provide artefacts in their collection to form more displays for the exhibit. The proposed plans for Doncaster Railway Heritage Centre will also be on display. Members of the Doncaster P2 Locomotive Trust will be answering questions about the plans. In addition to this, the Doncaster P2 Locomotive Trust will have a display about their project to build a Replica of P2 No. 2001 “Cock O’ The North”, a notable achievement by Doncaster Works when the original was completed.
