The Christmas model railway show - Manchester 2019

Recommended Posts

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.

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.
