Our Aim:

To present to the viewing public from all over Scotland and the UK the best that our hobby has to offer. We pride ourselves in bringing a wide selection of model railways to inspire you to have a go if you haven't already and to show you how to go about getting started and to improve your modelling skills. If we can entertain and educate our visitors then we will have succeeded!

The layouts & Exhibits

This year we will have a full scale (12 inches:foot) exhibit. This Scammell Scarab has been restored to a very high standard indeed and is very impressive by Iain McEwan. Come and see it located in Hall 1 near the train rides. These vehicles were once a very common sight all over the UK being used to deliver freight from stations and goods yards to customers.
