Brighton Toy and Model Museum’s Next Running Day Is A Tribute to Roger Bamber
Please join us for a remarkable vintage model railway show where we will be celebrating the timeless allure of steam power and the romance of train travel.
The train running day taking place on 14th October 2023 and is a particularly special event for us as it celebrates the life and incredible work of our friend Roger Bamber, a renowned photographer of international fame, who held a deep affection for our museum and its exquisite collection of model trains.
As well as the iconic photo of Chris Littledale tending to one of the steam engines in our collection, Roger made other generous donations to the museum, including the prestigious Schools class locomotive nameplate ‘Brighton’.
This exhibition is a heartfelt commemoration of Roger’s enduring legacy within the railway enthusiast’s community.
On Saturday, October 14th, Brighton Toy and Model Museum is excited to announce its next train running day The Great Vintage Model Railway Show
The Vintage Model Railway Show will feature a delightful collection of vintage model trains, carefully curated by museum founder Chris Littledale, in memory of Roger. The collection spans the era from the 1920s to the 1950s, and notably the large ‘O’ gauge layout will be operating from 11:00am until 4:30pm with a break for lunch from 1:00pm to 2:30pm.
The museum itself will be open throughout the day from 10:30am to 5:00pm.
During this time the museum will be warmly welcoming the public to enjoy the elegance and charm of the locomotives and iconic trains from a bygone era as they pass though beautifully made scale scenery.
