Organised by the Warley Model Railway Club their annual, self styled National Model Railway Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham is this coming weekend 24th and 25th November. It has become a major event in the model railway calender with a large number and wide of layouts along with many associated trade stands, the key manufacturers and model railway press all present.
Many newly released models are available for the first time at or around the Warley show (also in time for Christmas too of course). In addition number of announcements of new models or first views of work in progress are timed to coincide with the show. I will be summing up any announcements or news of interest to Southern Modellers next week (although as a teaser, there is one announcement being made at 10am on the Saturday morning of the show that is of Southern interest and this announcement will also be posted here at the same time!)
I shall be at the show all weekend once again assisting Mike Wild editor of Hornby Magazine operating his N Gauge Midland Region layout Hettle that will be operated using Hornby’s Railmaster Software, so wrong scale, region and it’s DCC so somewhat away from my usual comfort zone! We shall be located on the joint Hornby Magazine / Ian Allan stand A18.
The show is a bit like Marmite you either love it or hate it, if you are in the camp of the former and attending please feel come along and sat hello.
