Visit the historic City of Chester and its Cathedral and enjoy Pete Waterman’s Making Tracks Model Railway Exhibition which is being supported by Nicky Thompson’s Marvellous Days Out Railway Poster Exhibition.

The 74 foot West Coast Main Line layout stretches the length of the nave at Chester Cathedral, and in this unique setting, celebrates the work of Chester born Thomas Brassey.

The Model Railway Exhibition is being supported by Hornby Model Railways and the Chester Model Centre.

Alongside the Model Railway layout you will also find, acclaimed Chester artist, Nicky Thompson’s Marvellous Days Out Railway Poster Gallery.

This Poster Gallery is sponsored by the Mid Cheshire Community Rail Partnership in collaboration with the North Cheshire Community Rail Partnership.

The Railway Art Posters tell a simple story of where you can take Days Out by Rail on the Mid Cheshire and the North Cheshire Lines.

You can win a signed copy of one of these 15 posters by joining a free-to-enter Poster Art Competition.
