Great Little Trains Model Railway Show

Details

Welcome to the third Great Little Trains Model Railway exhibition in the town of Bala which will be held at Ysgol Y Berwyn Secondary School, Bala LL23 7RU (on the A4212).

Located in three halls with easy access, free parking, full refreshments and a free vintage bus service linking the exhibition with the Bala Lake Railway. Additionally there is a vintage transport show taking place at the railway on Sunday and Monday.

Park at Bala or Llanuwchllyn, ride the railway, with a vintage shuttle bus service serving the exhibition. Visit the Festival of Transport (vintage vehicles, tractors, etc) at the other (Llanuwchllyn) end of our line for two great family shows over the weekend. Of course the best way to get from one to the other is by our train. The railway will be operating our intensive Pink Timetable, using vintage Hunslet steam engines from the north Wales slate quarries.

The exhibition will feature 20 (approx) narrow gauge layouts plus 10 (approx) 00/HO/7 mm layouts, in various scales, scenic, of historical and modern image, steam diesel and electric.

All the funds raised will go towards the new extension of the railway into Bala town.
