Highlights from the GCR Model Event

Last modified date

On the 15th – 17th June 2018, Bachmann Europe attended the annual Model Event at the Great Central Railway in Leicestershire. Our video below features highlights of the event including the selection of steam and diesel trains that were in operation over the weekend. The Bachmann stand, which was located at Quorn & Woodhouse station, displayed current, new and forthcoming items as well as giving modellers the opportunity to ask any questions!

The Bachmann Collectors Club was also present at the show with a selection of limited edition models on display including our New OO scale BR Standard Class 9F No. 92214 ‘Central Star/Leicester City’ (32-851K) steam locomotive. The real engine was also present at the show, hauling visitors up and down the line whilst carrying the Bachmann headboard.
