The 2018 model railway exhibition sponsored by the Bure Valley Railway will be held again in the Jubilee Centre, Aylsham, NR11 6JG on Saturday 6th October. There will be models of different gauges and sizes that range from N gauge to 00 gauge with model steam and diesel traction as the theme. Exhibitors usually come from the surrounding counties of East Anglia but we try and have layouts from further afield to add variety.
The exhibition owes much of its success to the catering support given by the volunteer ladies of Aylsham. They do a magnificent job providing refreshments for the visitors and lunches for the exhibitors, traders & our volunteer helpers.
Due to building alterations at the Jubilee Centre the available exhibition space is reduced slightly. However, we will be using the Bure Valley Railway station as a location for our railway groups and clubs along with some modelling. This is still being developed so keep checking to see what is going where! The good news is that we have secured the use of a vintage Routemaster bus to link the two sites together and this will be free to ticket holders.
The BMRC will offer a “Loco Doctor” service again this year as this was a success in 2017 with some generous comments. In addition the DCC ‘doctor’ will be there giving good advice to potential DCC modellers either starting from new or thinking about conversion. Lots of exciting things can be done these days from loco sounds to automatic train control.

The BMRC will be arranging an interesting range of exhibitors and traders to provide a varied exhibition to visitors.
