Our Exhibition 2020

We are sorry that we have had to cancel our 2020 show due to the Coronavirus crisis. A number of exhibitor pull outs and a chance  of not enough visitors to make the show viable means we cannot go ahead, irrespective of any government ban on gatherings.


We will be back next year!

This is the 56th exhibition organised by the Rochdale Model Railway Group and the sixth to be held in Littleborough, following the success of our previous shows at the Coach House.

In the style of our early exhibitions, showcasing the finescale modelling of our members and friends, this is a small, low-key but high quality event featuring a selection of top quality exhibits. Littleborough Coach House is a disability friendly venue with Lift access to upper floor.

The Exhibition is located in the Harvey Room on the upper floor of the Littleborough Coach House, a Community Hub in the heart of Littleborough, nestling in the Pennine hills above Rochdale. The Hall used for the Exhibition has access by both stairs and a lift. Facilities include:
• A Heritage Centre
• Tourist Information
• Local interest books
• Local arts and crafts
• Regularly updated arts and crafts exhibitions

In addition to drinks and light refreshments sold by RMRG, the Cherry Tree Cafe is located downstairs and is open from 9am to 4pm (Saturday) and 9am to 3pm (Sunday), offering breakfasts, lunches and light refreshments.

There is plenty of free car parking in the vicinity of the Coach House and Littleborough Railway Station is a 5 minute walk away.

The journey time from Manchester Victoria is under 30 minutes and the station is served by a half hourly service. Alternate trains go to Blackburn via Burnley and Leeds via Dewsbury. On Sunday the Leeds trains go via Halifax.
