All this happened at the 2019 event

The BRM Stand

The BRM Stand 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.

FREE Gift for pre-booked children tickets!

We are excited to announce that we are working with LCUT Creative to give all children with pre-booked tickets a laser cut weighbridge kit made with conservation grade wood fibre boards (rrp £3.99). Aimed at the 7-8+ ages (adult supervision required). Requires sharp hobby knife and PVA/Wood Glue to finish. Made using coloured boards so that out of the box it doesn't need any painting (can be repainted/weathered if desired with either acrylics or enamels). Please collect from the children's area at the show.


Visit the demonstration areas for the opportunity to learn new techniques or ask any questions you might have.

Pendon Museum

Pendon Museum has some of the finest dioramas anywhere and is a source of inspiration and delight to all modellers. For the past two years, in association with BRM magazine they have been making 3D photographs of Pendon’s models. Some of these can be viewed on their stand. The central feature of the stand is a completely new 22 foot panoramic 3D photograph of The Vale Scene. Visit the stand to see the photographs and learn more about the Museum.
