Our next exhibition will be held in the Barnes Wallis Building, Manchester University Northern Campus (formerly UMIST) on

Saturday 5th (10:00 to 17:30) and Sunday 6th (10:00 to 16:30) December 2015

To mark its 90th birthday year, the Society has decided to return to the city centre and to its traditional pre-Christmas timing.

Admission: £8 per person. Up to 2 accompanied children free, with each adult.

Save money by buying your ticket now. Only £7 per person AND includes a free exhibition guide!
http://mmrs.co.uk/exhibition/tickets/

As the third oldest model railway society in the world, MMRS is proud to be the only one in the UK to stage an exhibition in the centre of a major city. The Barnes Wallis Building is between Oxford Road and Piccadilly stations, convenient for both train and tram. It is ideally placed to allow visitors from all over the country to visit one of the finest model railway exhibitions in the UK, and also to visit the acclaimed Manchester Christmas Street Markets.

Planning is well advanced and 18 layouts have accepted invitations to appear. Several of them will be making their debut at the show and most of the others have appeared in national railway modelling magazines. The layouts represent railways from many locations and many time periods, and represent scales ranging from 1:19 down to 1:450. There will also be a wide range of trade stands.

To be kept informed of developments as the Exhibition takes shape, join our mailing list by emailing: exhibition@mmrs.co.uk

More details to follow.

Edit: amended directions: http://mmrs.co.uk/exhibition/venue_directions/

I have followed the construction of this layout on another forum. It looks truly magnificent. Enough in itself to persuade me to have a trip to Manchester. Very Happy

assuming someone does not nick signal cable near Burnley again, Tod curve is still working and trams are running through Manchester then planning to visit on the Saturday.

John, Sunday unfortunately is risky for me because of engineering works around here. As far as I know trains are running OK on Saturdays, but ill check before deciding which day.
For anyone interested I am at Wakefield exhibition in a couple of weeks.

Hi Simon,
All being well, I shall look out for you at Wakefield! Don't know if I am strong enough to drive there yet though and that's only a week away.

Meanwhile,

Three weeks from now, everything will be in full flow setting up for this show!
Looking forward to seeing some of you guys on here.
Cheers,
John.

Bog off, this is Manchester. Fair to middling is good for us.

John, did you get over to Wakefield? Would not blame you if you ducked out, as weather was not best. At least it stayed dry on Sunday though.

As for Manchester, I think I am still planning to go Saturday, unless something else turns up. No engineering works planned on route, and Metro trams have nothing planned. Given the crowds the Manchester Christmas market expects this does not surprise me, although there could be problems still.

Hi Simon,
Sadly, I didn't get to Wakey, sorry!
I was feeling a bit run down, my mate let me down and with the weather - I just didn't fancy it. Pity as I usually do some spending with Conti-kits, at least.
Hopefully, next weekend should make up for it.
Cheers,
John.
