Over 5000 visitors are expected to attend the National Festival of Railway Modelling at the East of England Arena this weekend.
The popular event is returning to the venue for the 11th consecutive year on Saturday and Sunday, December 7-8.
The show, billed as ‘the ultimate day out for model railway enthusiasts’ is organised by Warner’s Shows and is supported by Market Deeping Model Railway Club and Nene Valley Railway.
It’s being held in the main arena building and will feature over 30 full model railway layouts in a variety of gauges – showcasing the most extensive, detailed and complex model railway creations from around the world.
Children going to the festival with pre-booked tickets will receive a simple to assemble, pre-printed and laser-cut weighbridge kit, for use in their own layouts.
The event, which regularly attracts 5000 or more visitors over the two days, will take advantage of a shuttlebus partnership with the venue. If you’re arriving by train there will be free transport to and from the venue every 30 minutes, with free parking for those arriving by car.
“Warners Shows always puts together an incredibly professional and smoothly run event, and it’s a pleasure to welcome the festival back to Peterborough.”
