At the Midland RAILEX Weekend at the Midland Railway in Butterley on 13th/14th August, as well as the usual british prototype layouts there is a separate annex dedicated to American model Railroading. I believe the NMRA are having a stand but I have seen nothing in roundhouse or other press so thought best to let you know for publication. Also there will be Mike Hewitt and Dave Bush's HOn3 modular layout and our HO "Padden Flatts" switching layout so should be plenty american interest to keep the die-hards happy.
We are also attending, with Padden Flatts, "Caistorail" the annual Railex organised by Caistor Model Railway Club. This is a small show but normally of a high standard so well worth the trip I am told. Unfortunately it clashes with the convention on the 29th & 30th October so we won't be attending the convention but some people who are only attending the convention one day may wish to visit on the other. It is held at Caistor Town Hall, High Street, Caistor, Lincolnshire LN7 6TX. OPENING TIMES: SAT. 10.00- 5.00pm, SUN 10.00-4.30pm ADMISSION: Adults £3.00 Children £2.50 Family £7.50
