We organise a two day exhibition in January every year at St Anselm's School, Old Dover Road, Canterbury.


Over the weekend our visitors are able to enjoy a range of high quality railway model layouts in a variety of scales and prototypes. There is also a good selection of trade and other stands offering our visitors the opportunity to see and buy a wide selection of model railway related products, many of which are not available in local model shops.

Go to our Exhibition Archive page for a virtual tour of the layouts at our 2023 Exhibition as well as at previous Exhibitions and to see what you missed if you did not visit.
