Rail treat for fans.
Run by retired Lyndon School teacher Nigel Bowyer and accountant Kathy Millatt, the event is expected to attract around 600 modellers.
Modelling fans will be able to see 12 separate exhibitions ranging from a gauge 1 to the smallest gauge Z.
Among the guests will be the editor of specialist magazine Continental Modeller, Andrew Burnham.
Organiser Mr Bowyer said: "We are looking to attract even more people than the previous two years.
"There will be the opportunity to buy kits for buildings, locomotives an coaches as well as a variety of track." Entry to the event costs pounds 4.50 for adults with a family of four costing pounds 12.
A tombola, with a selection of railway-based prizes sent from America and Canada, will also be available with all proceeds going to the Manna appeal for orphans in Romania..
