Milton Keynes Model Railway Society unveiled its latest model railway on 30th January, when the Mayor of Milton Keynes (Cllr David Hopkins) cut the ribbon during a launch ceremony at the club’s premises. Based on Brinklow, located between Rugby and Nuneaton, the layout is set in the period between 1948 to the mid-1960s.
Date: Saturday 10th February, 2018
Opening times: 10.00am – 4.30pm. Buses operate from 9.30am – 4.15pm
Location: Stantonbury Leisure Centre, Stantonbury, Milton Keynes. MK14 6BN
Admission: Adults £7.00, Children £1.00
The new layout can be seen at the Society’s annual exhibition at Stantonbury Leisure Centre on Saturday 10th February, 10am – 4.30pm.
An ex-London Transport Routemaster bus will operate every 30 minutes between Milton Keynes Central rail station and Stantonbury Leisure Centre. Shoppers attending the exhibition may wish to leave their car in town and take the free bus service.
The model railway exhibition is one of the largest one-day shows in the UK, attracting around 2,500 visitors of all ages, backgrounds and interests. As well as Brinklow, there will be over 40 excellent layouts and 30 traders attending, including a miniature ride-on-railway and a great Lego layout. The show offers a great value day out for families and railway modellers on the first day of the half term holiday.
Exhibition Manager Terry Silver said:
We are delighted to have our latest model railway layout on display at our exhibition this year. As an added bonus to visitors, we are running a free vintage bus throughout the day; there will also be ample free parking space available. We have 40 layouts and over 30 traders lined up, complete with a miniature ride-on railway – it promises to be a really special day out”.
