2019 Milton Keynes Model Railway Exhibition
Special two day show to celebrate our Golden Jubilee!
To celebrate our 50th Anniversary next year, Milton Keynes Model Railway Society (MKMRS) will be staging our annual exhibition over two days rather than our usual one day show. The event will be held on the weekend of Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th February 2019 at Stantonbury Leisure Centre, Milton Keynes and will be open from 1000 – 1700 on the Saturday and from 1000 – 1630 on the Sunday. The show will revert to a one-day event in 2020.
More details will be posted here shortly as we confirm layouts and traders!
PRESS RELEASE: 2018 exhibition
Model train show is just the ticket!
Date: 12 February 2018 – for immediate release
Over 2,750 people flocked to the annual Milton Keynes Model Railway Society (MKMRS) exhibition on Saturday 10 February at Stantonbury Leisure Centre, Milton Keynes. Organisers were especially pleased to welcome a large number of families with children to the show as well as railway modellers from across the UK.
A vintage Routemaster bus from London, running between Milton Keynes Central rail station and the exhibition proved to be especially popular, with some services being completely full up.
MKMRS were delighted with the huge attendance, but do apologise to visitors who found the show to be very crowded at times and who experienced a long wait for the café. Plans are already underway for next year’s show and the club is considering what can be done to improve these aspects.
Please tell MKMRS your views about the show by completing the website form at www.mkmrs.org.uk/feedback
MKMRS Exhibition Manager, Terry Silver said:
‘We were delighted to see so much interest from families and children this year making this a really special exhibition that Milton Keynes can be proud of. It was wonderful that so many people chose to join us on Saturday, but we do apologise to those who were uncomfortable at times. We would love to hear visitors’ feedback on the show as it really helps us to plan for next year’s 50th anniversary show.’
The society look forward to seeing everyone again at next year’s show which will celebrate the club’s 50th anniversary.
