Great Electric Train Show Manchester 2021

The count down to the 2021 Great Electric Train Show is on - with two events planned for the new year. 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 Hornby Magazine readers as possible in 2021 at the Great Electric Train Show.

Layouts

Old Elms Park, 'O'

Mark Pollard's Old Elms Park has been expanded to model the depot yard outside of his atmospheric roundhouse. This 'O' gauge layout is a superb example of limited space modelling with the original roundhouse interior covering just 4ft x 4ft. Read the full feature in HM141.

Kinwardine Wharf, 'OO9'

Kinwardine Wharf is Charles Insley's busy narrow gauge dockside railway. It is set on the Welsh borders in the 1920s and 1930s and features steam operation for all its train services. Look out for a full feature on this layout in Hornby Magazine.

Hyde Lane Depot, 'O'

Hyde Lane Depot is Nick Hughes 'O' gauge depot layout which takes inspiration from Healey Mills. It is set in the 1970s when BR was transitioning from green to blue colour schemes.

Twelve Trees Jct, 'OO'

Hornby Magazine's Twelve Trees Junction models BR's Southern Region in the transition from steam to diesel and electric traction during the 1960s.
