seventeenth year, the Festival of Model Tramways features the highest
quality model tramway displays. With lay-outs from across the UK and as
far afield as Germany and Belgium, this is a truly international show.
Fans of model tramways will gather at the Steam Museum over the weekend of Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 July for this significant event in the modelling calendar.

Visitors, both new and experienced, can indulge their hobby or interest further, with a variety of stalls supplying the modeller with all the necessary materials, kits, drawings, photographs and books for model tram building.
In addition, as 2005 commemorates sixty years after the end of World War II, there will be a special "Trams at War" photo exhibition. This year there will also be a competition, with a trophy given for the best model tram of the show. There is no entry fee, just bring along the models.
