As part of Discovery Week, come along and see the amazing Model Tram and Railway Exhibition on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August 2017, 10am to 5pm both days at the National Tramway Museum, Crich Tramway Village, Crich, Derbyshire. (Normal museum entry charges apply.)
A total of 10 layouts will be present at the Exhibition, which includes:
‘Ridings’ is a 4mm scale layout depicting the Ridings of Yorkshire sometime in the 1960’s. Largely fictional, the layout does however incorporate scenery and buildings from the Ridings, and around West Yorkshire in particular. The working trolleybuses are scratch built models and represent vehicles that operated in Huddersfield and Bradford. Complementing the trolleybuses are several motorbuses, which are guided by using the Faller system. The layout also incorporates a railway, which operates a number of steam locomotives, but includes a number of green diesels from the 1950s.
Robert Whetstone large-scale 30 foot exhibition layout will be operating on both days with tramcar models built by Robert in the 1950s and 1960s, depicting trams from the West Midlands.
Event Organiser, John Huddlestone, said: “The Model Tram and Railway Exhibition has proved to be increasingly popular over the last few years, and we are looking forward to welcoming even more visitors this year”.
