The Mid Wales Model Railway Show is now an established annual event and takes place on 2 floors of the Town Hall, Welshpool. The venue is 10 minutes walk from the Mainline Railway Station and 10 minutes walk from the Welshpool & Llanfair Railway at Raven Square (see WLLR website for timetable). There will be a variety of Model Railway Layouts ranging from N gauge to G Scale. ample parking is nearby. Accompanied Children have FREE admission.|
The show this year has some interesting and varied exhibits and we believe represents good value for money. There are some layouts not seen before at this show.
Walter Turner's ever popular Playmobil display always entertains the young ones.
Nigel Adam's Depot shows what can be achieved in a small space.
The scratchbuilt Llan Doro Incline is fascinating.
To commemorate the end of the Great War, Kevin Hughe's ever popular "Up the Line" should be a poignant reminder.
Have a Go on Sea will give young and old a chance to operate (play?) trains.
This year we welcome our friends from Chester with their superbly modelled "Castlefinn" Irish narrow Gauge. Automatic train operation on "Crowsnest Wharf" will be demonstrated against Trevor Hughes' superb modelling of the Snailbeach Railway.
Lydham Heath near Bishops Castle is an atmospheric railway demonstrating the delights of quiet and uneconomic light railway branch lines.
Finally we welcome back "Llareggub" a superb essay in narrow gauge modelling based on Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood by Dave Rowe and is in the care of the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway.
