We hopefully we be able to take card payments for entry at the stadium desk for ticket sales on the vitage bus this will remain cash only.

What time will the Railex ticket desk be open from?

I mentioned this, as from past experience, tickets that are being purchased via a card take far longer to issue, meaning there will be a much longer queue to get in. At Spalding last year, they decided to take cards, I arrived as usual, an hour after opening time and would normally walk almost straight in, but this year, I could believe just how long the queue was and it was a good 30mins before I got in, not good if it`s raining!

Maybe a good case to buy an advance ticket?

I will find out what time we are opening the cash desks normally we do this well before the show opens so people can then wait either in the cafe or in the balcony over looking the hall. We should have tap and pay card machine so unless people need a receipt which we can either email or send by text unfortunately we can’t print a receipt. this should not really take too long.

Thanks for your reply  

I believe that it would be a good idea to have that information posted predominantly outside the entrance informing those Patrons wishing to pay by card that there will be no printed receipts being issued, to stop any arguments of those “few” who want a receipt but don’t have either an email account or a mobile phone! Yes, I`m afraid they still do exist.

I assume that you will be having 2 ticket desks, if so, I would strongly advise that one be allocated for payment of cash only, while the other for cards and cash. That was one of the problems at Spalding, their 2 ticket desks were taking both cards and cash and it was taking the card payments that was the main cause of the long queues and I believe they were able to print off their receipts. By having to take mobile or email details for those card paying Patrons who require a receipt, will just add up to even more delays at the ticket desks.

It's £9.00 to get in. Presumably everybody knows this before heading off to the show. How difficult is it to arrange to have a tenner in your pocket.


Jerry, baffled by the problems and issues people seem to invent because they are incapable of getting just a little bit organised.

We will start to sell tickets at 9.30 and will have two people doing this during the busy times. In previous years the stadium staff have sold the tickets this year we have to do it. But will be from the same place on reception as you come through the main entrance. Tickets will need to be shown as you enter the main hall for RAILEX. We tend to queue people down the side corridor and let them in via additional doors on opening on Saturday morning.

As Railex is only a few weeks away here is another photo of Arun Quay by Gordon Gravett. 


We have yet to find out the Chiltern Railways timetable for the weekend, as there maybe changes due to on the Saturday the League 2 Playoff Final, and on the Sunday the League 1 Playoff Final, but we will do the best to ensure that our vintage bus links with the arriving trains in the morning and departing trains in the afternoon.

So I was correct in my assumption that there are still those who don`t have a mobile phone or an email address, which is fair enough.

The point I was making was directed at those who won`t be aware of this restriction at the time of paying by card, then stand at the ticket desk, holding up the queue while they insist that they be given a receipt for their transaction.
