A selection of layouts to inspire. Over 20 layouts will be featured at Guildex

Some of the top craftsmen in all areas of railway modelling lend their time to pass on their knowledge and techniques to others. Dispose of unwanted items and perhaps to find what you are after.

Guild teams
The membership, publications and technical teams will all be there. Meet them and find out what they do and what they can do for you.

Old friends
And not so old! Meet your fellow modellers.

We have been made aware that in 2022, the May BH has been moved into June and an extended period of celebration for the Queen’s platinum jubilee is being organised. Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June will be the official BHs. Saturday 4th will be celebrations in London and then street parties have been suggested for Sunday 5th June.

The week commencing 30th May in many areas will be half term so children will be on holiday and this may mean families go away or book family engagements. Having spoken to our traders, the majority who responded said that they would not attend an exhibition during a bank holiday weekend.

It has therefore been agreed with the Dome in Doncaster that we can have Saturday 11th June 2022.
