Now in its twenty-ninth year, this national exhibition features the highest quality model tramway layouts and displays. There are sales stands to supply the modeller with all the necessary materials, kits, drawings, photographs, books etc., for model tram building. There is a competition, with a trophy given for the best model tram of the show (no competition entry fee, just bring along your models).

Photo by Bob Appleton In previous years the exhibition has alternated between the Kew Bridge Steam Museum and venues further north such as the National Tramway Museum at Crich in Derbyshire, the Birmingham and Midland Museum of Transport at Wythall and the Museum of Transport, Greater Manchester, now our regular northern venue. The 1998 Festival, held in Fleetwood, was one of the events held to celebrate the centenary of the Blackpool and Fleetwood Tramroad. In 2013 (1:16 model by Terry Russell - left) we moved to the prestigious Fairfield Halls, Croydon but this is now closed for renovation, so for 2017 we will return to the Kew Bridge Steam Museum, now know as the London Museum of Water & Steam.
