Derby Model Railway Exhibition - 12th & 13th May 2018

The Roundhouse, Derby

MMRG has organised the Derby Model Railway Exhibition since 1982.

The event has grown to become one of the premier Model Railway shows in the country.

Mickleover Model Railway Group is proud to announce it will be holding its 38th annual Derby model railway exhibition on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May at The Roundhouse, Derby. Bringing together a wide selection of high quality layouts and exhibits from across the country, they will cover British, European and American outline in a variety of scales.

The show is once again being held in the former North Midland Railway locomotive workshops. Built in 1839, it is currently Grade II* listed. Now part of Derby College, the building has been fully restored and is a modern events venue. This means the exhibition is held in a true railway location!
