THE Christmas Model Railway Show – Manchester 7th & 8th December 2019!  
Is by no means the biggest in the exhibition calendar, but we believe it is one of the best.  Its unique city centre location means that access from all over the country is easy and also makes us environmentally friendly, since about 75% of our visitors use public transport.  This quality and ease of access has been recognised by UKRailtours Ltd who this year are running a special charter train from London Kings Cross which features us as one of the must-see attractions that Manchester has to offer. So, if you live in London, Potters Bar, Stevenage or Peterborough and fancy a very special day out, go to https://www.ukrailtours.com/product/over-the-pennines-to-manchester/

But whether you are travelling a long distance or are more local, you can be sure of an exhibition which showcases a wide selection of top quality model railways, together with traders and other activities for all the family.  As always, the children will have the chance to enter our Free Treasure Hunt Quiz with a chance to win a complete train set to take away with them.  In response to feedback from our visitors, the traders will be offering a range of transport themed Christmas gifts as well as railway items and modelling supplies.You don’t have to take my word for it.  Have a look at the article recently published on the Manchester Evening News website, which includes video footage of some of the layouts attending this year: https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/special-features/christmas-model-railway-show-manchester-17122763

 Full details about all aspects of the exhibition are on our website where you can buy advance tickets.  It’s worth buying in advance, since not only are they a bit cheaper, but the doors open earlier and there’s a dedicated entrance point which means the queueing to get in is very much reduced.http://www.mmrs.co.uk/exhibition

Adult admission is £10 on the door or £8.50 in advance (no booking fee) and all children are FREE.  A complimentary exhibition guide is included in the price.

Manchester Exhibition 2019

Here is a selection of my photos taken on the Saturday, not the best, I’m afraid as a lot of the layouts were very busy and hard to get close to. It seems the GMRC has had quite an effect as there certainly were lots of families in attendance.








Netherwood Sidings in 0 scale.














Clarendon & Scrubbs Lane














Marx Engels Platz


Cheadle Ridge Lane TMD








Upwell Drove and Elm Lane was a really pretty and very well presented dual layout (in two parts!), wonderful!




Moorton Bottom Yard




Maristow.
Having been corralled into operating on this layout (Great fun, thanks, Bob!), I am embarrassed that I only snapped these shots, D’oh!




The sole “American” representative as part of the MERG stand, demonstrating their own electronics and ‘application’ based control gear with a hands on demo.




This little Brawa lok ran beautifully!




Kozel Cement.




The MMRS own Hazelwood Junction

That’s all, folks!
