Thanks both, same here. I used to be able to combine with work trips, but difficult now. So maybe time to start thinking about actual hobby trips.

 

Definitely worth considering if you can Mikkel. 

 

Kind regards,

 

Nick.

Hello All

 

I have uploaded the 2 versions of Railex 2019 Floorplan with Stand Numbers pages in pdf format to the Railex website, one with Colour Blocks and one without, just in case you want to save the ink in your printer.

Or direct on these links

Looking forward to a trip up on Saturday

Is there a timetable for the station bus service - I did look on the Railex website but it was not obvious?

Thanks

Chris

Hello Chris

 

We have been waiting on Chiltern Railways for the amended timetables, due to the Football games at Wembley Stadium this weekend. 

 

I have been informed that these have been released, once these are checked, approved and formatted the timetable will appear on here and on the Railex website.

 

Thanks

Not Chiltern Rail, but I'm planning a trip on the CPRR on the way - meeting up with my ex-spotter friend. Hoping for the seats behind the driver!

Due to unforeseen issues Taff Vale Models have had to withdraw from Railex, although Minerva Models who is in the adjacent stand has increased his stand to fill the space.

Hello Tim

 

Check out the top of the Layouts page on the Railex 2019 website for the full details http://www.railex.org.uk

 

Though Adrian post above is correct.

 

Thanks

Blimey Tim, have you been sniffing too much P4 scale horse dung or something?

 

The list of six shortlisted layouts was given in a post dated 9th February in a thread cunningly titled "Cameo Challenge Results" in the section of RMweb called "Creating Cameo Layouts - The Challenge".

 

You can lead a horse to water and...

 

It'll probably drop dung on your foot...

After a mild panic, involving a 3 hour hunt for a mysterious short which appeared on Leighton Buzzard and took until 11pm last night to find, we are ready for action!

 

Trying to trace wires that you can't make sense of in a control panel that you didn't build is not really what I call fun!

 

In the end it turned out that part of the timber of the panel had moved slightly, enough for a wiper to bridge a gap between two pins.

 

Locos and stock are all serviced and ready and we are hopeful of a successful weekend playing trains.

 

I have seen a sneak preview of the garden railway display that Stephen Denny has put together and he has done a most professional job!

 

See you there.

 

Tony

When you see Gordon Gravett at Railex ask why he has a rabbit sitting on the tank top of his terrier!

 

Lets hope he's all ears....

I'll be attempting to keep Wenlock out of trouble on Sherton Abbas, so if you pop by to see Mr Stone's marvellous creation, do say hello! I'll be the less tall of the operators.

Likewise, one of my favourite weekends of the year.

I will have the Midland and SDJR sheds on their sub board along with a selection of plans, photos and other research material. There will also be both part built and finished locos and stock from the Bath Queensquare project as well as the signal boxes that feature in the latest MRJ.

It doesn't help that I have a fatal attraction for Terriers... :D
