The 83rd public exhibition of the Manchester Model Railway Society will now take place over the weekend of December 10th/11th 2022 at our new, spacious venue in central Manchester – the Sugden Centre, Sidney Street, M1 7HB

Planning is almost, and we will be welcoming 25 layouts and a wider range of traders than was possible at our previous venue.  As always, the layouts will be in a wide variety of scales and will feature prototypes from several countries and a wide range of time periods. Most of the layouts will have been featured in the modelling press.

The full exhibition website with details of the layouts, the traders, the attractions and, crucially, directions to the venue will be published in the near future.  Advance tickets will be on sale from 8th September until 8th December.
