If you haven’t booked already, here are 10 great reasons to make a date with the Great Electric Train Show:
1. The Charnwood Forest Branch
This stunning model is more than 40ft in length and the centrepiece to the Gallery area of the event.
2. Oulton TMD
A great favourite of the exhibition circuit this fantastically developed modern era layout is enthralling on every level.
3. Meet the Hornby Magazine team!
Editor Mike Wild, Assistant Editor Mark Chivers and DCC sound contributor Paul Chetter will all be on hand throughout the weekend. Got a burning question, why not ask them at the show?
4. Old Elms Road
You might remember it from HM105, but this layout is travelling all the way from Bodmin, Cornwall to be at the event!
5. Maxwell Colliery
Chances are you have never seen this layout before – based in Scotland this is its first foray into England. We can’t wait to see it first hand.
6. Manufacturer stands
Bachmann Europe and Gaugemaster will be both be at the exhibition throughout the weekend – plus we have another 28 traders to tempt your wallet too!
7. St Stephen Road farewell
Hornby Magazine’s St Stephens Road layout, which has been in storage for two and half years, will be making its final exhibition appearance with the magazine’s team at the Great Electric Train Show.
8. Turn yourself into a model…
Alan Buttler’s ModelU 3D scanning demonstration will be returning to the Great Electric Train Show this year offering you the chance to be turned into a miniature locomotive drive, fireman or passenger. Find him in the Skills Zone.
9. The British Motor Museum
The superb museum which is the host of the Great Electric Train Show has been refurbished and expanded with more of its collection in display than ever before. If you haven’t been before you are in for a treat of British automotive history and icons and if you have then there is bound to be something new to see too.
10. Barrenthorpe’s debut
Hornby Magazine’s ‘N’ gauge office test track is finally going to make its debut at the Great Electric Train Show. The team are burning the midnight oil to get it finished in time for the event.
