Great Little Trains Model Show

23rd and 24th May, The Great Little Trains Model Show

The Great Little Trains model show will be held at Ysgol Y Berwyn in Bala, while the Festival of Transport will be held in the camp-site field adjoining Llanuwchllyn station.

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

The model show will feature around 30 layouts with trade support, with a focus on narrow gauge models. The layouts confirmed so far are (with more to come):
