2017 TCS Public Summer Exhibition

July 15 @ 10:30 - 17:00


The 2017 TCS Summer Show will be held at a new and much larger venue, Stantonbury Arts & Leisure Centre in Milton Keynes on Saturday 15 July 2017. This is a large light hall in a modern building just a short drive from the M1.

We will be using the venue’s large main sports hall allowing for more displays and traders and nice wide aisles. These premises will be far better for the show than last year’s venue at Biggleswade which was very cramped and exhibits had to be spread over a number of smallish rooms. We have a total of 24 exhibits (see below) and 22 traders on 49 tables (we are now fully booked for space). Food and refreshment catering is on the mezzanine floor overlooking the hall.  There is a public accessible gallery running around the hall on two sides so we hope many of the hundreds of visitors using this sports and leisure facility many will be tempted to come down and visit the show as well.

Among the 24 exhibits are the following:

  • Roger White with an extended Dublo layout
  • Dave White with his Tri-ang Hornby 00 gauge Ford Dagenham layout
  • Bill Vyse with numerous 0 gauge including Hornby, Bassett-Lowke and various other tin plate treasures
  • The amazing 00 James Bond layout (as seen at Leicester but now even bigger)
  • Dave Peasant’s large layout including Hornby, ACE, Bassett-Lowke and various 0 gauge tin plate treasures including lots of Minic.
  • Kevin Paynes Paltry Circus in 0 gauge probably with various manufacturers old and new.
  • Very large 0 gauge live steam large layout using various running stock.
  • Large S gauge American Flyer large layout rarely seen now in exhibitions.
  • Large Gauge 1 layout featuring Bassett-Lowke etc depicting Sandy station.
  • Super rare Carette trains from Dave Ramsey – probably will never be seen again on public display.
  • Lots of Triang TT layouts depicting various scenes.
  • Lima 0 gauge layout – again rarely seen running at exhibitions.
  • Large display of Lesser known 00 gauge trains
  • Large Tri-ang Big Big layout showing all production items
  • Tri-ang Minic motorways layout – always runs smoothly.
  • TT beyond Triang range of trains with Eric Large.
  • Tin plate 0 gauge trains by the cheap and cheerful manufacturers.
  • Long Lego overhead railway layout, by John Forman


There is plenty of parking space at the venue, which is a few miles from junction 14 on the M1 (and about 20 miles west of Biggeswade).  There is a train station near the venue and we are hoping to run a mini bus service to the leisure centre.

Opening times: 10.30 to 5.00 pm. Entrance fee: Adults £4.50, children under 10 free.
