*** Warrington Model Engineering and Railway Exhibition 2020 ***

Sunday 26th April 2020 from 10am to 4pm


*** POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ***

Two South Warrington Clubs have come together to put on Warrington’s First Model Engineering Show in recent times - the last being in early 2000 and also in 1960!

We are running this event to showcase to the local community of Warrington what we do and how we do it - and we are actively looking for new members of all ages to join and support our clubs!

Featuring Real Live Steam Models in various model engineering gauges from 16mm to 5inch from the Warrington and District Model Engineering Society (WDMES)

There will be various models on display, from Steam engines to Diesel/Electric and rolling stock, and other engineering models

There are also 5 fixed Model Railway layouts of the Thelwall and Grappenhall Model Railway Club (TGMRC) featuring various gauges from N to 00

BP Locomotive Works from Southport will also have a stand showcasing the latest engineering works and some products for sale/order for the model engineer

One ticket provides you access to both parts of the Exhibition, held at the Grappenhall Community Centre and the home of the TGMRC

Pay on the door - a ticket will then be provided for proof of entry
Admission - £2 Adults, £1 Children, Family Ticket (of 4) is £5

Please note: you must retain your ticket to enter both parts of the exhibition at the Grappenhall Community Centre

*** Children must be accompanied by an adult. ***

Refreshments available

There will also be a Tombola stall


Please note - the exhibition is held in two parts of the Grappenhall Community Centre, which you should retain your ticket on admission to access both parts of the exhibition

The models on show are as a static exhibition, and models of steam locomotive will not be in steam as the exhibition is indoors

- The 'Olde Barn' will host the larger models and is located on the ground floor, it has a private entrance adjacent to The Bellhouse (Pub), is totally self-contained with disabled access and disabled toilet with baby changing facilities

- The TGMRC 'Loft' is a fixed display of the Thelwall and Grappenhall Model Railway Club, and is located on the first floor via a separate entrance near the Radio Club, which will be clearly signposted. Unfortunately this only has stair access to the 1st floor Loft space
