Event Information

Event Details

Brand-new for 2024, Model World LIVE is brought to you by the organisers of the Great Electric Train Show to bring together railway and scale modellers at the NEC in Birmingham. The event will take place on April 27/28 2024 in Hall 12 and advance tickets are on sale now.

This new event combines modelling disciplines with the best model railways, the best scale modelling displays, demonstrations, presentations, manufacturer support and traders offering the best in both worlds.

Highlights for the launch of the event include a second chance to see all three Making Tracks layouts joined together - and with a new extension to make this amazing award winning layout even bigger - together with layouts from travelling from far and wide as well as from the Warley Model Railway Club in Birmingham.
