  1. Railex Poynton 5/6th Sept 2020. We have concluded not to have our 35 layout show at the leisure centre this year for obvious reasons. If the world is open for business on this weekend? For 2020 we will be staging a smaller show at the Bulls Head pub SK12 1AG on the same weekend including our core contributing groups and a few smaller quality local layouts and traders. Our main show will return in 2021. All exhibitors and traders are being contacted by phone as of yesterday and details of the smaller 2020 and our 2021 events will be published and noted on our websi

  5. Well here we go again... another very late finish table making for some last minute bookings last night and stand pack printing since early today. Today we collect the stewards and kit from afar in advance of Friday! Exhibition managers worst nightmare this year as cancellations have forced me to enter my own layout Aston Magna, the new roundy-roundy variant of which is way too much work for a quick assembly last job Friday eve, so its returning for one last showing in the end to-end-style. So after polishing the bar and preparing in advance of Saturdays post show beve
  6. One late trade entry... Railway Memorabilia Shop. Please be advised that some roads in Woodford and Hazel Grove will be closed on Saturday around mid-morning til lunchtime, for the Tour of Britain cycle race passing through the area. During this period we advise if: coming from the north or west to approach Poynton via the A555 (airport east link road) then A523. If approaching from the south or east to use the A523 from Macclesfield. We anticipate this disruption to only be for a couple of hours! Cheers

  9. Apologies for the delay this year in posting our show content, entirely due to the huge number of changes we've been faced with due to all manner of reason. At this time we accordingly still have room for a couple of not too large! layouts and a trader, especially a tools and modelling materials one! One layout needs to be a 'travel each day in your own vehicle' example and for the other from further afield (approx-over an hour each way) we still have one DOUBLE! hotel room available on the fri/sat eve's for a layout 'not requiring van hire or ferries etc' for either a

Anyone know any news reporters that would like a swift kick in the bolxxx right now...i'm your man to do it! Fortunately we are made of sterner stuff at The Model Show, so we carry on regardless in 2018...but with a twist!..which was arranged long before this weekends fiasco. So see you again maybe?...on 15th 16th September 2018, at the usual
