Model Railway Weekend

Our 2021 Model Railway Weekend will be taking place 31 July – 1 August.

Enjoy steam train rides, explore our stations and visit the exhibitions!

Join us at the Bluebell Railway for our Model Railway Weekend. This firm favourite is back for 2021.

Come and see a variety of layouts across the railway and experience unique access to non-public areas such as the Maintenance Shed and Locomotive Workshop at Sheffield Park Station and the Carriage and Wagon Workshop at Horsted Keynes Station.

Have you ever attended a model railway exhibition before? Well expect an array of tiny worlds, all expertly modelled and brought to life by the steam and diesel locomotives that wind their way along the tracks. It takes patience, time and skill to bring these fascinating layouts to life.

We have a great selection of Model Railways featuring including N gauge, O gauge, double O gauge and gauge 1 layouts from across the country.
