Model Show and Bala Lake Festival of Transport

Model Show and Bala Lake Festival of Transport


The Great Little Trains Model Show (Saturday 25th to Monday 27th May) and the Bala Lake Festival of Transport (Sunday 26th & Monday 27th May). Two great family shows on one weekend at either end of the railway and the best way to get from one to the other is by train, plus a connecting bus service. We’re putting on an extensive timetable with frequent departures so you can park once and enjoy a great day out. First train departs Llanuwchllyn at 10:10, last train 17:20 (16:00 on Monday).

The Great Little Trains model show will be held at Ysgol Y Berwyn in Bala while the Festival of Transport will be held on the camp-site field adjoining Llanuwchllyn station. The model show will feature around 30 layouts with trade support, with a focus on narrow gauge models. The Festival will include a selection of vintage and classic tractors, motorbikes, cars, rally cars, stationary engines, classic Landrovers, fairground, military and large scale models.
