The Yorkshire Group of 16mm N.G. Modellers Ltd

The Yorkshire Garden Railway Show [ formerly Elsecar Garden Railway Show ] will take place in 2018 at the Richard Dunn Sports Centre in Bradford BD6 1EZ. The Show is organised by the Yorkshire Group of 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers Ltd.

After fifteen years holding our show at the Elsecar Heritage Centre, we have decided to move the show to a new venue. There are two factors behind this decision. First, we wanted a little more space; to accommodate invited layouts, to have wider aisles for visitors and to give some traders the extra tables they have asked for.

Second, we have had difficulties with Barnsley Council again in booking Building 21 at Elsecar for 2018 and 2019.  

This venue has a double sports hall with level access from the car park nearby. There is dedicated show parking for hundreds of vehicles on site and a separate café space outside of the hall.
