The NMRA National Convention is an opportunity to see the best in modelling from across the United Kingdom and further afield. There will be a full week of train and model related activities, time to be a tourist and all finished off with a large model railway exhibition or train show.
If you have never been to a model railway convention before then you are in for a treat. You can choose to come for the whole week to get the full effect or choose to dip in or out for a few days. You will want to see the Train Show.
The week starts on Sunday 14th August 2022 with welcome activities and the next 5 days are jam-packed full of clinics, layout tours, prototype tours, general interest and tourist tours, special presentations and displays.
Whatever your interest, whether UK railways, US or wider afield, there will be something of interest to you. Check out the relevant pages for more details on clinics, tours, hotels, train show and check our FAQ.
The convention will be attended by NMRA members and model railroaders/railway modellers at large from across the world. Not only do you have the chance to see layouts and railways you’ve never seen before, we’ll also arrange social events so you can meet up and make new friends.
