Hampton Court Model Railway Society proudly presents annual show, Tolworth Showtrain on the 9th and 10th November 2019.

Tolworth Showtrain 2019, covers three halls of the Tolworth Recreation Centre and features 24 working layouts covering both a variety of scales, time-periods and locations, with superb modelling and entertaining operation, including one where children can drive the trains, along with comprehensive Trade support, including one new this year. There are also demonstrators who will give hands on tuition in modelling skills. This is your opportunity to try your hand at something new, age will be no barrier to this, and you will probably have something to take away.
We aim to provide entertainment for everyone, not just the dedicated enthusiast, and many will remember Roland Emett and his eccentric designs for the Far Tottering and Oyster Creek Railway, this world is admirably brought to life with Mike Walshaw’s layout Scratchy Bottom. Or you may prefer St Ruth, a 2mm scale layout that is almost a model of Penzance.

On SUNDAY one Child will be admitted FREE with every paying Adult.
There is a free Bus link from Surbiton station which is served by South Western Railway services. The timetable will be available on the website in early October.
Several TfL bus services stop within 10 minutes walk of the show.

The show is fully accessible with everything being at ground level.
