Model Railway Exhibitions Calendar:
- Workington Model Railway Exhibition
Sat 16th - Sun 17th November 2019
Lillyhall, Workington, Cumbria CA14 4JW
OPENING TIMES: SAT 10am-5pm, SUN 10am-4pm
Solrail Ltd. A not for profit company holds the Workington Exhibition in the Energus building at Lillyhall, between Whitehaven and Workington and will be there again this year. It has to be seen to be believed! Light and airy with lots of natural lighting it makes for a pleasant experience. There is a bus service on the Saturday that stops outside the door from both Workington and Whitehaven. Easy to park. Easy to access and all on one level! Fresh meals available. Excellent toilet facilities.|
Another successful event in 2018 so we have decided to do it all again. The list is just about sorted, subject to something happening. Already the initial layout list has been amended a number of times but we have an excellent selection again. Nearly all are new to Workington so local people can expect to see some wonderful models. Those of you that travel from a distance can expect a warm welcome and the cafe will be open for bacon butties to start the day then a full lunchtime menu with hot and cold meals available. Something for everyone is our mantra and we think we have done it again! Let us know what you think? The Largest event of its type in Cumbria.
