The 2024 Great Electric Train Show will take place on October 12/13 at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes (MK1 1ST) following the 10th anniversary show in 2023.
The 2024 event is set to feature up to 30 layouts, more than 50 trade stands plus demonstrations with the first attractions and advance ticket sales set to launch this spring.
Key Publishing's Publisher, Modelling Mike Wild said: "We are really looking forward to revealing the first elements of the 2024 Great Electric Train Show. We've got a brilliant selection of layouts lined up for the 2024 show across 'OO', 'N' and 'O' gauges including our own layouts from the Key Model World/Hornby Magazine collection."
The Key Model World and Hornby Magazine team are working on a plan to revive the 'O' gauge diesel depot - Seven Mill Depot - for the 2024 Great Electric Train Show to display alongside 'OO' diesel depot Natford TMD which is also set to receive a number of upgrades to its buildings and scenery in the coming weeks.
The latest show information will be published here on the dedicated Great Electric Train Show pages below and we look forward to welcome visitors to the show on October 12/13 2024 at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.
