Meetings, Exhibitions and Events.

All events take place at the FTMR Building, near the main car park of Markeaton Park in Derby unless otherwise specified.

Open as normal

The Famous Trains model railway building is open as normal from 11am to 4pm. We plan to open every Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

An entry ticket still only costs £3.00 for an adult or £1.50 for a child, with a bargain rate of £6 for a family of up to two adults with children under 16 years old.

Our big model railway based on Chinley station will be operating 'famous' trains as well as trains appropriate to Derbyshire in the 1950s and 1960s.

We look forward to seeing you again!

Trains of Remembrance

A special Remembrance/WW1/WW2 themed layout will be in operation from Saturday November 4th to Monday November 20th.

This layout will commemorate those who fought and lost their lives in the two world wars.


The layout will be operated with a special Christmas theme from Saturday December 2nd to Monday December 4th.

This will put you in mind for Christmas.
