About The Show

At this one event you will see over 70 model railway layouts and commercial stands.

The model train layouts feature city, country, and industrial scenes, in several scales, some highly detailed and with effects that will enthral children and adults alike.

The layouts vary from the simple to the complex, from one you could build at home to those that are built by expert modellers over years. Listen to the sounds, see the smoke, follow along freight train snaking its way around a mountain, or a high speed passenger express speeding through a city-scape.

New at the show this year is a Train Driver simulator. Sit at the controls, test your skill in matching the train speed to the undulations and curves in the track ahead. Watch the level crossings, slow the train without endangering the passengers behind you, and do not over-run a red signal! Try it, you may surprise yourself about how much fun it is.

There are the commercial stands offering train models, scenery materials, building kits, figures, modelling parts and much more. For the beginner, or the collector, the gathering in one place of many suppliers of model railway equipment is an attraction itself. Be the first to buy a new release, or complete your set of carriages for the “Caves Express”. And there will be bargains on offer for the thrifty.

For families, mums and dads with children, grandparents looking for another place to take the grandchildren while parents get a break, the Sydney Model Railway Exhibition is a really nice, safe, comfortable and enjoyable show. It is one of the best events of its type in the year.

See you at the Southee Pavilion, Sydney Olympic Park in October.
