Model railway exhibition returns to Reigate in February

The Volks Railway, one of the layouts

 

A model railway show that proved popular last year is returning this February (2018).

Organisers say it’s the perfect opportunity for fans, both young and old, to see up to 20 layouts in a variety of scales and gauges.

The event is being held from 10am – 4.30pm on Sunday 18 February at Reigate School, Pendleton Road, Reigate, RH2 7NT.

Clubs and modellers from around London and the South East will be attending, bringing along layouts such as:

  • The Volks Railway: the tramway on Brighton seafront
  • Aftermath: set on the western front in France during WW1 – exhibitor Laurie Calvert made the layout as a tribute to his grandfather, Laurence Calvert, who won the Victoria Cross during the conflict
  • Cato Pass Sci-Fi: an innovative combination of model railways and Warhammer
  • Newchapel: one of the largest O gauge layouts in the country
  • Circleton Village: an opportunity to control a layout and help raise funds for the Air Ambulance

The organisers add:

“With a strong railway heritage in Reigate, this is bound to be a popular event and is a great opportunity for people to enjoy nostalgia in miniature, for others to learn about a new potential past time or simply appreciate the care taken to create a model railway.”

Prices are the same as last year: £5 for adults, £2 for children, and there’s a family ticket for £12.

Details of the event can be found on a webpage and a Facebook page.
