Great Little Trains Model Show (Cancelled)

25th and 26th September 2021 (Cancelled due to lack of suitable venue)

If Covid rules permit, the 2021 Great Little Trains model show will be held at Ysgol Godre'r Berwyn in Bala on 25th and 26th September 2021. We are hopeful that by September 2021 social distancing rules will have been relaxed sufficiently to allow us to run a viable and enjoyable model show.

We intended to feature around 20-25 layouts with trade support, with a focus on narrow gauge models. It is hoped that many of the exhibitors scheduled to appear at the cancelled 2020 show will be able to join us for 2021 (exhibitors will be contacted early in 2021).

The Model Rail Magazine layout "Bala Town", currently on display in the Heritage Centre is expected to be exhibited in operational form for the first time during the show.

Previous show galleries: 2019, 2018.

Covid permitting, there will be a connecting vintage bus service between the model show, local carparks and Bala Pen-Y-Bont station throughout the day. We're putting on an extensive timetable with frequent departures so you can park once and enjoy a great day out.
