Re: Railex 2013 Aylesbury 25th May & 26 May

Most of the traders we have are the specilist type who manufacture there own bits and pieces, so really there is not much duplication, in fact I would think that Railex has the best selection of traders selling all the bits you are ever likely to need. We have less layouts this year due to the fact ...

I do visit quite a few shows and I must admit there are plenty that I maybe spend ten minutes walking round then leave as the exibits are so poor, also many have the same sort of tat traders, and even if I go with a shopping list there is rarely anything on the list I can buy at the show. As a kid I...
