Warley Model Railway Show 2017

Warley Model Railway Show is the largest show in the UK with over 90 layouts this year.  They asked me to film it and boy, did it take a long time to get round them all and I still have a sinking feeling that I missed a few.  If I missed yours then abject apologies!  I was there all weekend and it was great fun to actually spend all weekend looking at layouts.

I did get some shopping in so a 16mm Quarry Hunslet is under the tree this year… along with a pile of low melt solder.


I also took a lot of photos, a large proportion of which are below.  However, I have run out of energy to label them all.  Which layout they are can be spotted on the video as every layout is captioned there.  I won’t tell you how long that takes with 92 layouts and a flaky video programme because of a dodgy Mac upgrade…

    Wow great show. Thank you for sharing. GB is just a 2,5h flight away so it seems like a bad excuse to not pay a visit 🙂

    I would love to visit this show someday. Have you ever thought about of have heard about the Fine Scale Model Railroad Expo here in the states? Not the largest of shows but fantastic How to Clinics and wonderful displays.

      Not sure you would be missing much this coming year, we will see. The one in Boston was great, got to tour the Franklin and South Manchester. Two thumbs up….

      I agree about the F&SM although not to sound blasphemous, but it was smaller than I had envisioned


    3. True but if it’s too daunting, I don’t want to start. I can’t imagine anything worse than 60’ to model but others would hate a diorama. That’s the beauty of modelling. Something for everyone!

    Thanks for sharing. You videoed many scales that I am not familiar with in the US.

    Great work Kathy! The background music is incredible too. What is it? Also “Merry Christmas” and all the best for 2018 and I look forward to your future posts!
