New stands join the 2022 Great Electric Train Show

FOUR new stands have joined the 2022 Great Electric Train Show with one layout change and three new trade stands expanding the listing the biggest ever. In total 91 stands will form the show on October 8/9 at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes (MK1 1ST). 

The final layout to join the show is Dave Court’s model of nearby Fenny Stratford station on the Varsity Line. The ‘OO’ gauge layout models the station as it was in the BR steam era including its surroundings and it featured in HM159 in August 2020. Fenny Stratford replaces No Place, which is unable to attend the show.
