There will also be the EM and P4 test track and the EMGS Trade Officer will be in attendance selling amongst other things, the Society’s range of EM track and points.

Recent Event Reviews
DEMU Showcase 2022 - New Date, New Venue!
A new date and a new venue were needed due to a combination of costs and availability (made harder by the Jubilee celebrations). The new venue was great and personally as someone in a wheelchair I found it pretty good with only the stage inaccessible unless I went up with crutches (which I did once, but I elected not to try another time!). The cable covers were a problem, but the organising team noted this and will make changes for next years show.
I felt the quality of the layouts was fantastic and it was good to see so many familiar faces after what felt like ages. Well worth the trip across to Sutton Coldfield.
The show will return next year to the same location, in June. Keep an eye out for more details on the DEMU website.
