Let's get back on track!

Back in 2020, we made the difficult decision to cancel our annual exhibition for the first time in 40 years due to the Coronavirus pandemic after considering the affect that social distancing would have had on us providing a high quality exhibition, balanced against ensuring everyones' safety. 

For 2021 we felt that with continued uncertainty surrounding Coronavirus, we couldn't hold an exhibition again that year, so we held a smaller club open day at our new exhibition venue.

2022 finally allows us to bring you our 40th model railway exhibition. Although in a new home, there will still be several layouts on display, including some built for the Club's Layout Challenge, alongside modelling demonstrations, trade support and refreshments.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Future Exhibitions

The main change for this year's exhibition is our venue. For 39 years we used St. Peter's Church in Sudbury, however this is undergoing a major internal refit, with the proposed alterations likely to affect the suitable of the venue for our exhibitions in the future. Therefore we have decided to move to The Stevenson Centre in Great Cornard.

If you are interested in exhibiting a layout at one of our exhibitions, please contact our exhibition manager Alan Cox at SMRCAlanCox@outlook.com for more information.
