Top 10 reasons to visit the 2021 Great Electric Train Show

The 2021 Great Electric Train Show is just a few days away and takes place on October 2/3 at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes. Here are our top 10 reasons that you NEED to be there...

Rossiter Rise, 'OO'

Rossiter Rise portrays a fictitious through station somewhere in the suburbs of North West London in the mid-late 1950s. It includes platforms serving LMR suburban services, LMR branch line trains and a bay platform for London Underground shuttle services.

Fence Houses, 'OO'

Fence Houses is a busy National Coal Board (NCB) shed in the coalfield area of the Industrial North East to the south west of Sunderland. NCB locomotives are serviced and repaired here as well as being based at the shed.

Chilcompton Tunnel, 'OO'

The original inspiration for the layout was a photograph in the Somerset and Dorset in Colour book by Mike Arlett and David Lockett and the result is a 19ft long stretch of double track main line recreating the line as it exits Chilcompton Tunnel.

Wimborne, 'OO'

Wimborne is presented by the Wimborne Railway Society and models the Southern Region station from its home town in 'OO' gauge in 20ft x 12ft in stunning detail.

Foldham, 'OO'

Foldham is set in the end of the steam period with the old order gradually being taken over by new diesel traction. The layout is placed in the Norfolk and Suffolk coast area, on the Eastern section of the Eastern Region of British Railways.

Saint Mellion, 'OO'

The real St Mellion is a small village situated in East Cornwall, a little to the west of the River Tamar, but it was never in reality served by a railway.

Loctern Quay

On the banks of a lazy river sits Loctern Quay, where a narrow gauge railway can be found threading through the streets of the village. Although the quayside has fallen into disuse the railway struggles on, its little goods trains still serving the community and its small businesses.
