Full Steam Ahead to Model Railway Spectacular

Big, small, real or model, there is something for everyone at the National Slate Museum's annual Model Railway extravaganza coming up this half term, between 18th -21st February 2010.

The show, which attracts thousands of visitors and enthusiasts every year, is a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages to enjoy numerous working and static displays, including substantial layouts by well known local railway clubs such as Colwyn Bay, South Caernarfonshire, Wrexham and much further afield!

As usual, there are numerous activities to enjoy including free rides for children on minature steam engines and trains, daily demonstrations and talks as well as shed-loads of engines and layouts of all shapes and sizes - from 00 gauge to the ever popular 32mm gauge engines. 

Throughout the Half Term week (14th - 21st February) the Llanberis Lake Railway will be open for train rides along the beautiful Llyn Padarn (for an additional charge) making a visit to the event a complete rail lover's dream and a great day out for all the family.
