The Great Electric Train Show

Great Electric Train Show Manchester 2021

The count down to the 2021 Great Electric Train Show is on - with two events planned. The first takes place on March 13/14 at EventCity, Manchester while we will be returning to the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes on October 9/10 2021.

Behind the scenes we work hard to bring layouts to the area which haven't been seen before while picking favourites from past issues and future feature subjects too. Variety makes the show and you can expect layouts modelling different regions, scales and periods and much more besides. 

We look forward to seeing as many Key Model World readers as possible in 2021 at the Great Electric Train Shows.
