Experience the amazing detail of 23 of the UK’s finest model railway layouts that will be uniquely displayed alongside iconic Swindon-built locomotives.

You’ll also see live steam as Hatch Heritage & Stem Engineers display a selection of their vintage traction engines, plus new special exhibitions, unique trade stands and modelling demos.

This year’s event will be held in memory of Owen Rees Gibbon, who along with his brother John was instrumental in helping to organise the festival and attracted the best model railway layouts and demonstrators to the Swindon show over the last 21 years.
