    Welcome to Rail Ex North East 2018 organised by the Blyth & Tyne Model Railway Society.

    As regular visitors to the exhibition will be aware, we have continuously been trying to improve the quality of the layouts which are on display each year. It is therefore pleasing to hear the comments from visitors’ that it is something we have been accomplishing. Hopefully we have achieved the same standard or improved again this year.

    We will have 29 layouts, representing layouts with a British theme and layouts from around the world ranging from N to O Gauge. We hope they will cover an area that is of particular interest to you or show you something out of the ordinary that will inspire you in your latest modelling project.

    We also have Demonstrations, covering most aspects of modelling. Also this year we have numerous layouts and demonstrations showing the latest technology in Model Railways - Digital Command Control (DCC). Please take your time to visit all parts of the Exhibition, and ask the exhibitors as many questions as you like. We also have a fine array of Local and National Trade support this year, supplying the railway modeller with just about everything they need, so please give them your support.

    We will also have a modelling area for all children sponsored by Smart Models. All children will be able to construct a free card building and be able to take it home with them. We respectfully ask all parents to assist in the supervision of their children during this task.

    This year we have our usual Tombola. This way you get your prizes straight away. There are many fine prizes this year including Loco’s donated by Hornby and Dapol. So please stop by admire the prizes and buy a ticket or two. There is also our usual stand of used magazines available for a donation.

    Special thanks must go to the John Spence Team for their invaluable support in helping us arrange this exhibition and to Booklaw Publications for their continued support.

    Also thanks must go to all the Exhibitors for supporting the show and the Traders for their continued support in the programme and the show.

    Once again we hope you have an enjoyable time at the exhibition and we look forward to welcoming you to our new venue.
