Swindon Railway Festival 2017

When: Saturday 09 September 2017 12:00 AM - Sunday 10 September 2017 05:00 PM



Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September, 10am to 5pm



Join us for the the biggest GWR event in the UK as we celebrate the 90th Birthday of King George V and all things railway!

You'll get to see some of the finest model railways in the UK - uniquely built by railway groups and enthusiasts - many on display for the very first time. 


STEAM will be filled with model railway displays, alongside our permanent exhibits so the festival is great value and there really is something to keep everyone entertained.

Back by popular demand, we have a superb live steam display, courtesy of Hatch Heritage & Steam Engineers.

Trade stands inside the Museum will be stocked with model railway items, railway art, railway books and memorabilia.

The festival is a terrific place to network with other model railway enthusiasts and hobbyists as well as a great way to find out about the wonderful work carried out by other railway heritage organisations.

You'll fine a Real Ale Bar and a barbecue for tasty festival refreshments and STEAM's own Platform One Café will have delicious hot and cold snacks at the ready.

We'll be posting details of some fantastic modelling demonstrations and talks soon, so please check in regularly on this site and also follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
