The Modelworld exhibition will be returning to The Brighton Centre on Friday 20th until Sunday 22nd February 2015. However, this year the usual collection of boats, planes and trains in all shapes and sizes will be accompanied by Dalek’s, Lego models, the boating pool, doll houses, circuses and fairground displays and a variety of trucks and tanks.
As if that wasn’t enough, Sussex steam engineer extraordinaire Neil Gough, will be bringing his faithfully restored traction engine “Gigantic” to the Brighton Centre in a tribute to the fallen in World War I.Throughout the exhibition the engine will do the job it was built for by hauling the huge Howitzer Field Gun and the crews living van through the streets of the city every day.
Another huge steam attraction will be the biggest ever display of the fifth of five full size steam railway locomotives that are usually hidden away at the strictly private Ingfield Light Railway near Horsham, a line that is managed by Bluebell Railway Manager Chris Knibbs & is located in the grounds of Ingfield Manor School.
Chris English, Joint Exhibition Manager of Brighton Modelworld, commented:
“The 2015 show is set to be one of the best modelling exhibitions in the city to date and we really want to prove to families that there is something for everyone no matter their age. We are obviously delighted that we have been going strong for 37 years and, most importantly, that the modelling industry is still alive and gaining popularity every year. We look forward to welcoming both new and old faces to the exhibition and I hope all of our visitors enjoy the vast array of exhibits that we have on display.”
Modelworld takes place from Friday 20th February until Sunday 22nd February 2015 at The Brighton Centre.
