Romiley Methodist Railway Modellers Show 2020!
After an amazing show in 2019, where we raised a total of £1,614.17 for Action for Children, we cannot wait for this year's show on September the 12th! However, in order to raise as much as we did last year, and more, we need your help! The following page will tell you all you need to know about our charity show this year, and what you can expect from it!

Romiley Methodist Railway modellers main aim is to inspire and captivate the minds of young people, and get them interested in railway modelling. As a result, many of our expertly crafted models are child orientated. Either the purpose of the layout is to let you, the audience take control (no matter how old, or young you are!) and let you have a taste of what Railway modelling is all about! A significant portion of all our layouts at our show will be hands on experiences, it is up to you if you want the trains to move! This is something that the club thrives off, and whenever we are designing our next model the question, how can we get children involved, in any capacity, is always raised. In fact, many children come along to our club meetings on Wednesdays, along with a family member, and are prominent members of the club. After all, we need young blood in this hobby to carry it forward!
This obviously, plays a huge part in why we operate our exhibition for the charity Action for Children. Admission to the exhibition is made by a charitable donation, all of which goes to Action for Children. If you do want to find out more about this amazing cause I seriously recommend clicking the link above, which takes you to there homepage; they do some amazing work!
Also, at our show you can find a station buffet where cold food and hot or cold drinks are served throughout the day. Across the two halls you will find countless models that have been modelled over many years, many of which need visitor participation to run! Finally, we need your help for one final thing! Some pesky lego men have escaped their box and have spread out across the exhibition. You need to find them, so we can put them back in their box a the end of the day!
