We also occasionally collaborate on other events, such as displaying our Ilkeston Town layout at the Erewash Museum in Ilkeston in January 2020, or a celebration of Colwick Locomotive Shed and Marshalling Yard in Carlton in March 2023. Upcoming events will be listed here. Club layouts and club members’ layouts are often seen at other exhibitions around the country; see the Layouts page for details.
