Okay, so let me get this clear- is it just models on display next weekend (as the theme suggests) or can you still wander around and play with the old trains?

I would like to know the answer to this too - I already have tickets as boyfriend really interested in model railways but I want to see the main part about the underground really :D

Well, as the place is so large, I'd assume there would be one area reserved for miniature stuff and then the rest of the place is open as normal.

No idea personally.

Also, while we're at it, anybody fancy making a big meet-up of it?

None of my friends want to go because they're boring bastards...
