Dewsbury Model Railway Show is offering a special treat for visitors when they attend the event later in the month.
Due to take place at The Trinity Community Centre in Batley Carr on November 16th, the show will have a number of experts giving demonstrations on some of the most popular layouts available. St Peter’s Church in Earlsheaton has organised the event which is expected to see a large representation of railway enthusiasts and the demand has meant that the event has had to be relocated to a larger hall.
Spenborough Guardian reported that this is the second year that the Dewsbury Model Railway Show has been running and this year organisers hope that as many as 600 people will be in attendance. David Lenners told the news providers that there will be a host of model railways from post-war years along with various speciality products.
Visitors will be able to view the 20 layouts including a Lego setting and even a “kids drive yourself” layout for youngsters attending. The show has attracted supported from the likes of North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Kirklees Light Railway who will have representatives at the event. It will run from 10:00 GMT to 16:00 GMT and costs £3 for adults while children under the age of 12 go free.
The Dewsbury event once again highlights the popularity that these events have with model railway enthusiasts. They offer people the opportunity to speak with like-minded counterparts about specific layouts and how they can improve their own collection. For others it can be a great way to romanticise about a passion they used to indulge in many years ago.
It also a great day out for youngsters as they are able to play with the specially designed layouts and control the trains as they go around the tracks.
