Swindon Railway Festival 

More than 3,000 railway enthusiasts are expected to attend the Swindon Railway Festival, on Saturday 15 September and Sunday 16 September, 2007. The festival is to be held at STEAM, the UK's Museum of the Great Western Railway, which is housed in the beautifully restored Grade II railway building, right in the heart of the former Swindon railway works. In its heyday, 'the works' was the powerhouse of a railway network that was regarded as the most advanced in the world.

The Swindon Railway Festival celebrates the town's glorious railway heritage and features some of the UK's biggest and best model railway layouts. Pop guru Pete Waterman is also a keen railway enthusiast and he will be exhibiting his 'Just Like the Real Thing' models. Other features include Hornby and Bachmann roadshows, model making and repair workshops, railway art, talks, book signings and trade stands.

A large number of Railway Holidays from around the world, can be found in our listings.
