This year over 30 layouts will be attending the show in many different gauges, eras and scales, the layouts have been hand-picked by members of the BRM Team for their features, modelling expertise on display, inspirational ideas and unique features so there will be lots to look at and enjoy this year.
Layouts on display include the RMweb project layout 'Black Country Blues' (EM) and the first public showing of the 'work in progress' layout 'Grindley Brook' (O). Other must see layouts at the show include:
Dorehill St Stevens (OO gauge)
A very large project from Soar Valley Model Railway Club spanning over 41 ft x 14 ft and viewable from all sides.
Chillingbourne (OO gauge)
Exceptionally and realistically modelled with plenty of atmosphere. The layout has now become a showcase for some of the builders other talent in constructing locomotive and rolling stock kits.
Warren Lane (OO gauge)
Capturing the activity of a modern container depot with its operational cranes and supporting road vehicles.
Cliffhanger (009 gauge)
A trains in the landscape layout. Highly visually impressive from the working funicular railway down to the exceptionally well-modelled 1930s lido and the ‘moving’ waterfall with its associated spray!
Helmthwaite and Chapel Lane (O gauge)
Two excellent O gauge layouts in one. Visitors can have the pleasure of seeing two different company’s trains operating independently on the two levels.
PLUS, lots more must see layouts. For a full list click here.
