Welcome to the Railway Exhibition and Steam Gala 2017

The Railway Exhibition and Steam Gala 2017 is hosted by the Downs Light Railway Trust, to mark the 90th Anniversary of the Downs Light Railway and the completion of a major restoration. The event is also to showcase miniature and model railways with a special exhibition, as well as live steam train rides around the grounds of The Downs Malvern in the heart of the Malvern Hills.

This website provides information on the RE&SG 2017 at The Downs, Malvern. 


After the Gala, the children, staff and volunteers were invited to a private railway in Worcestershire as a reward for their efforts.
