The Chiltern Model Railway Exhibition will be held at Stevenage Arts & Leisure Centre next Saturday and Sunday.

The new venue has been chosen by the Chiltern Model Railway Association (CMRA) because of the Lytton Way site’s excellent transport links and its large, disabled-friendly and well-lit halls.

The weekend will feature a diverse selection of working layouts covering a variety of scales, gauges and prototypes.
