It seems that RAILEX 2016 will be the last showing of Wibdenshaw. I think it is shaping up to be a good show.

I believe parking can be difficult any tips would be welcomed. Thanks.

As Wibdenshaw is now under new ownership, see other thread hereabouts, and as the said new owner has more than a passing interest in the southern region of British Rail, the layout is currently being converted to third rail, and Railex will be it's first appearance.
Due to time restraints only the Pudsey line will have been converted and will be re named Pudsea which is more in keeping with its new image and area.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
The layout isn't under new ownership just yet, so worry not, as this last British outing for Wibdenshaw at Railex will be operated by the usual crew.
However the 3rd rail installation plans are coming together well, and should look superb when the Merseyrail class 508s come gliding past Pudsea Junction!

Hopefully won't be spending too much money at RailEx this year, as the major outlay will have been at ExpoEM the previous weekend.
As Keir is adding the third rail to Wibdenshaw is the gauge being increased to 18.83 to fit in with the Scalefour Society 40th birthday celebrations!

Parking for Railex is not difficult, the stadium has free parking, plus we hire the adjacent hospital staff car park, the is also the hospital car park but this is chargeable.
We always recommend people park in the Friarcroft long stay close to Aylesbury railway station and get our vintage routemaster which runs from the railway station car park to and from Railex every half hour on the Saturday and every hour on Sunday, you can also buy Railex tickets and programmes on the bus.
We also recommend coming Sunday which tends to be quieter than Sunday.
Thanks David. Can I make an observation? If you recommend people to park near the Ry Stn and encourage people to visit on Sunday why does the bus only run half as frequently on the second day?

I've never has a problem parking right outside the entrance.
