The Manchester Model Railway Society tries to be a bit different when it stages its annual exhibition. Of course you can expect to see some of the best model railway layouts in the country; of course there will be a wide range of traders and demonstrations of modelling techniques, - but we try to add something that you won’t find at other exhibitions.
In the past we have staged a film premiere and held an art exhibition; this year our Armistice Display honours the memory of two Manchester men. Both were employees of the London & North Western Railway, both volunteered to join the army, both served with distinction and, at the end of World War 1, returned to their jobs on the railway. Both had locomotives named in their honour.

What do you think – is it real or is it a model?
