In the yard at Butterley Station in Midland Railway Centre, there’s a maroon coach which stands in the siding by the side of the main running line. This coach was formerly the home of the Star Tugs Exhibition and where you.
The Exhibition was initially funded by Kickstarter money, raised by fans of the series who wanted to see the models given a suitable home. It was opened on the 22nd of March 2014, following the Star Tugs Launch Event at The Battlefield Line Railway in Leicestershire at Market Bosworth. It was relaunched in 2016 after an extensive overhaul, and was open full time, until it's unfortunate closure in 2020.
Follow the history of our exhibition through this page, and while the full time exhibition may not be open, we still run events as and when we can. Keep your eyes on our facebook page for the most up to date information.
