Details

Join us at the National Slate Museum for a steam-filled spectacular in our Model Railway Show. There's loads of activities to enjoy during the show including free rides for children on miniature steam engines.

There are daily demonstrations, talks, and various layouts of all shapes and sizes on display - from 00mm to 32mm gauge engines, as well as trade stands to buy some items to take home and don't forget to bring your own 00 gauge trains and have a go on the test track layout!

This year will also feature demonstrations of the slate carrying incline, located in Padarn Country Park as well as storytelling sessions for children. The Model Railway Show is a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages to enjoy numerous working and static displays.

A complete rail lover’s dream and a great day out for all the family!
