With regret we have to confirm the CANCELLATION the 2018 Exhibition.

The weather has deteriorated significantly in south Warwickshire this evening and the forecast has now changed with the Amber warning zone extending in our direction.

Just after 20:15 this evening I was informed by the College Estates team that the Leamington site would be closed tomorrow and therefore it would not be possible to build the show.

A freight train puts in an appearance occasionally.

Our featured layout from the Leamington & Warwick Model Railway society at this year's exhibition is the 4-' x 16' O gauge layout Kimble.

The layout features a small, Great Central style passenger station, an MPD, and a dramatic viaduct. Since it was last exhibited it has gained a brewery near the station.

We have been involved in layout construction for many years as part of our model railway hobby, with experience in both DC and DCC installations.

Elite baseboards can construct our boards in many variations with open or closed frames, and can supply your next dream layout, have a look at our growing Installations category for layouts we have in build or completed. (note: not all layouts we build are in this list as we respect or customers and always ask permission before publishing any layout)

Information about the society, the exhibition, and our open day

Displays of models and our modelling competition

MERG (Model Electronic Railway Group) is an international, UK based group promoting interest in the application of electronics & computers to all aspects of railway modelling.

Founded in 1967, the Group’s aim is to actively promote and advance the use of electronic and computer technology for model railway operation, which is ideally suited to take advantage of these technologies, and the application of electronics and computers can be used to good effect to add enhanced features and realism to model railway operation. 

MERG celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017 – we have come a long way from the early days in 1967 when a small bunch of electronics enthusiasts got together to swap notes and ideas about model railway control and add-on widgets to enliven layouts.

What Is The HMRS?

The Historical Model Railway Society is a UK Registered Educational Charity "founded in 1950 by historians and modellers to collect and exchange records, drawings and photographs in the interests of historical accuracy in modelling". (Andrew Dow in The Oxford Companion to British Railway History, Simmons & Biddle (editors), OUP 1997)

The Society maintains a strong commitment toward obtaining, storing and distributing information of value and integrity. Material placed in its care will be treated with due regard to its information value.

The floor plan and index of exhibitors for the 43rd annual exhibition of the Leamington and Warwick Model Railway Society on the 3rd & 4th of March 2018 are now available in the form of PDF documents.
