Already managing two of the country’s biggest model railway exhibitions – The Festival of Railway Modelling in Doncaster and The London Festival of Railway Modelling at Alexandra Palace – Warners sees a show in the West of England as a great addition to its events portfolio. It will continue to work in close partnership with the Association of Model Railway Clubs Wales & West of England to ensure the show remains one the country’s best.

We plan to work closely to attract the best model railways, leading traders and further improve what is already an excellent exhibition.”

 

Mike Tucker, treasurer of the Association of Model Railway Clubs Wales & West of England, commented: “The Bristol Model Railway Exhibition has been the premier model railway show in the West Country since 1968. To help us make the show bigger and better we felt that the time had come to enter into a partnership with someone who shared these goals. Warners Group Publications shares our passion to achieve these aims and we are very happy to team up to ensure that together we bring the best layouts from around the country alongside leading traders to the show, thus ensuring the exhibition continues to expand and improve for the future.”
