The superb National Festival of Railway Modelling will be held this year over the weekend of the 19 & 20 October 2013 at Peterborough Arena, East of England Showground. The show is organised by Warners Shows, British Railway Modelling Magazine, RMweb and run in conjunction with the Market Deeping Model Railway Club. Railway modellers, enthusiasts and collectors from up and down the country are expected to visit the show over the course of the weekend to see the impressive selection of layouts, exhibitors and demonstrations on display!

This years’ show will play host to 30 layouts in a broad variety of gauges and scales, including the stunning Cliffhanger (OO9), Black Country Blues (EM), Happisburgh Goods (O), Warren Lane (OO) and Chillingbourne (OO). Many have appeared in the pages of British Railway Modelling Magazine and have been hand-picked for their modelling excellence. 

In addition to this, the show will also feature 80 exhibitors. From major manufacturers including Bachmann, Hornby and Dapol to specialist exhibitors selling hard to source items there will be a wide range of modelling items for sale including tools, kits, parts, memorabilia and more.
