Model Trams

Shows and Exhibitions


Model Tram Shows and Exhibitions

Model tramway layouts are exhibited at a range of model shows, varying from mainly railway to mainly tramway. Sometimes there are sales stands selling tram models, kits and parts.

Festival of Model Tramways

The Festival of Model Tramways

The main exhibition of the year, devoted completely to model trams and the national and premier event for the model tram enthusiast, is the Festival of Model Tramways, which is an annual show alternating since 1989 between London and the provinces. The London exhibitions were for many years held at the Kew Bridge Steam Museum and at Fairfield Halls, Croydon. The provincial shows have been at various venues including the National Tramway Museum at Crich, Derbyshire, the Midlands Transport Museum in Wythall, Birmingham, the Blackpool and Fleetwood Centenary and the now regular location, the Museum of Transport in Manchester.

The details of the current exhibition and reviews of earlier ones can be found on the Festival pages.
