Model Railway Day, Northern Ireland’s largest display of iconic miniature models,returns to the Ulster Transport Museum, Cultra.

On Saturday 10 November there will be a day for families and rail enthusiasts of all ages to view over forty exclusive layouts, models, and associated displays. Visitors will see familiar faces and places such as Thomas The Tank Engine to bygone Northern Ireland rail layouts; all located in the unique setting of the full-scale locomotives and carriages in the Transport Museum’s Rail Gallery.
A new addition to this year’s event’s programme is a special exhibition model from England to mark the centenary of the Armistice, created by Kevin Hugh entitled "Up the Front 1918" which depicts operations on the front line of the First World War.
Model lovers will have a chance to see a one of a kind model of Lisburn train station built entirely from Lego, complete with models of NI Railways trains. 
For fans of vintage railways, there will be layouts based on Irish prototypes including Castlederg, which closed 85 years ago in 1933, and Stanfording which features O gauge models of Irish trains.
