Layouts Confirmed to date (February 2017)

7mm Scale


Denton Brook, O & 0-14 Gauge, Exhibited by Giles Favell, Denton Brook is the result of an industrial whimsy. A very minor cable manufacturer, in the early 60s, supplied by rail for the most part – this layout represents one small corner of the factory.

Harlyn Pier, O Gauge, Exhibited by Peter Beckley, The layout depicts the terminus of an imaginary (ex LSWR) branch line on the north coast of Cornwall not far from Padstow in the BR period circa 1960.
Pavilion End, O Gauge, Exhibited by David Hagger, Pavilion End is set in an industrial area, probably South Wales or it could be the West Midlands. The GWR and LNWR were competing for traffic and had met in an end on junction somewhere further along the line.

Penfold Priory, O Gauge, Exhibited by Bridgend Model Railway Group, The era is circa 1930/40 in GWR days with LMS having running rights. The trains enter the scene through the overbridge, with the loco shed facilities on the left. Passing the signal cabin and coal yard, coming into the busy terminus.

Tollesbury Quay, O Gauge, Exhibited by Martin Stringer, The Kelvedon and Tollesbury was a real branch line, though I moved the terminus to the busy little “hard” at the head of Woodrolfe Creek, the period modelled is the first few years of nationalisation.


1:50 Scale
 
Pempoul, 18.2mm Gauge, Exhibited by Gordon & Maggie Gravett, The metre gauge Reseau Bréton system once served much of inland Brittany connecting rural villages and towns to SNCF main lines, this fictitious scene depicts a small section of the railway in the last years of its life along with a taste of the area through which it ran.


1/4inch Scale
 
Boot, 3/4inch Gauge, Exhibited by Peter Kazer, Boot was the upper terminus for the 3' gauge Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway (known as Owd Ratty) and here it served the Nab Gill mine as well as the village of Boot.


1/64inch Scale
 
Tresparrett Wharf, 22.45mm Gauge, Exhibited by Maurice Hopper, Set in an autumnal scene, this model depicts a siding in the style of the wharfs' found on the Bodmin and Wadebridge Railway in North Cornwall on an LSWR branch line around 1890.

Trowland, 22.45mm Gauge, Exhibited by Trevor Nunn, Trowland is set somewhere on the North Norfolk coast, close to the salt marshes and the sea. The Eastern & Midland Railway became part of the Midland & Great Northern Railway in 1893, and we see it, as it might have been, a year or so later.


4mm Scale
 
Devil's Bridge, 009 Gauge, Exhibited by Eddie & Rachael Field, The Vale of Rheidol is a 1' 11½" Narrow Gauge line, which runs from Aberystwyth to Devils Bridge, Our model of Devil's Bridge is set in the late 1920s.

Horfield 1955-1961, 00 Gauge, Exhibited by Horfield Group (Bournemouth), A section of the Great Western four track main line existing Bristol North, set in the time period of 1955-1961, where a large variety of motive power and rolling stock can be seen.

Kirkmellington: EM Gauge, Graham & Tony Bucknell, Represents a small colliery in the NCB East Ayr area of Scotland. It is assumed to be on a small single track branch line off the main G&SWR main line from Carlisle to Kilmarnock that winds its way up into the Ayrshire hills near Patna and Dalmellington from the east.

Leeman Road (York) 1964, P4 Gauge, Exhibited by John Shaw, Part of the old steam depot at York as it was between the years 1962-1966: the steam engines were in decline and the depot’s sidings were filling up with new English Electric (class 40) diesels.

Sidmouth, P4 Gauge, Exhibited by Richard Harper, The model seen here represents Sidmouth as it was around summer 1959 or 1960. Viewed from the front of the layout, the line disappearing to the right would continue on to Tipton St John’s, Ottery St Mary and finally Sidmouth Junction.

Westcliff, EM Gauge, Exhibited by Richard Butler, Westcliff is a ‘might have been’ whose location is based on the Dorset seaside town of West Bay, Bridport’s harbour, as it might have evolved by the 1920s.
{C}

3mm Scale
 
Heybridge Wharf, 14.2mm Gauge, Exhibited by Mike Corp, Heybridge Wharf is purely fictitious and is situated somewhere in Suffolk at one of the last inland wharfs still operating. The railway was built under the Light Railways act as the Hey Light Railway to connect the town of Heybridge to the Great Eastern Main Line via Heybridge Wharf.


2mm Scale
 
Fence Houses, 9.42mm Gauge, Exhibited by Bob Jones & The Fence Houses Team, Our chosen period is British Rail 1952 - 1962, using steam and diesel locomotives. Many mainline workings operated through Fence Houses, due to engineering works and diversions taking place on the 'new' main line.

Hallam Town, 9.42mm Gauge, Exhibited by Alan Whitehouse, A little terminus set in South Yorkshire in the 1970s blue period that gives a real the whole thing an 'Eastern Region' feel.

William Smith's Wharf, 9.42mm Gauge, Jerry Clifford, The ‘Wharf’ is the latest, and smallest, addition to the series of layouts based on the fictitious North Somerset Light Railway (NSLR) as it might have looked in the 1920s.

Is that list of traders confirmed or just the mailing list for invitations, does seem rather long?

Yes all the traders are confirmed the floor plan is now on our website http://www.railex.org.uk

The traders that come to Railex tend to be the more specialist ones that are not normally seen at other shows.

A point worth emphasising in your publicity, I'm already trying to change my arrangements, a quick thrash down the M40 is looking likely.
