MMRG has organised the Derby Model Railway Exhibition since 1982.
The event has grown to become one of the premier Model Railway shows in the country.
Mickleover Model Railway Group is proud to announce it will be holding its 40th annual Derby model railway exhibition on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th May at The Roundhouse, Derby. Bringing together a wide selection of high quality layouts and exhibits from across the country, they will cover British, European and American outline in a variety of scales.
The show is once again being held in the former North Midland Railway locomotive workshops. Built in 1839, it is currently Grade II* listed and is the oldest surviving railway roundhouse in the world. Now part of Derby College, the building has been fully restored and is a modern events venue. This means the exhibition is held in a true railway location!
This will be the fifth exhibition the Group has held at The Roundhouse and it is now very much the home of the Derby show. After the success of last year’s event, it is very pleasing to be able to anounce that this year’s exhibition will continue in its enlarged and expanded format using a third area at the venue. This means the whole of the available facility is now being used for the Derby Model Railway Exhibition and will be filled with (model) railways in a railway venue!
