2020 Warley Model Railway Exhibition POSTPONED

Organisers of the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition regretfully announce that following an extensive and detailed consultation period, it has been agreed to postpone this year's show until 2021 with concern for public safety and the well being of all exhibitors and supporters being central to the decision.

Exhibition Manager Nigel Smith explains:
'The Warley National Model Railway Exhibition is all about showing the best layouts, trade and other exhibits to promote model railway of all sizes. Close interaction is part of the experience, particularly for the younger visitors. Social distancing and other measures means that we cannot interact with fellow enthusiasts as we would wish.
As organisers we are enthusiasts too and it's the highlight of our year. Therefore, as you can imagine, the decision to postpone this year's show has not been taken lightly. Our concern for the safety of our visitors, exhibitors and club members is paramount.
We considered different options, various scenarios and restrictions that could be imposed. Running an event with the current COVID-19 related restrictions - such as adhering to social distancing requirements, restricting attendance numbers and dictating the direction of people around the hall - all ultimately would have impacted negatively on the experience of those attending and therefore the very essence of the show.
The Warley Model Railway Club exhibition Team is very disappointed, but rest assured we will continue working behind the scenes to deliver a fantastic show in 2021. In the meantime, stay safe and look after each other.'

For those who have bought advance tickets to the show, these will be accepted for admittance to the 2021 exhibition. If a refund is required please refer to the Warley Show website.

Warley National Model Railway Show 2021 will take place
On 27 and 28 November.

Scam Shopping Websites

I have been advised by Geoff Hammond of Basildon MRC of the following:
(NOTE: The info of the two sites are in the image as I refuse to give these people a link.)

'It was very late at night and I was sitting in bed with the ipad just browsing and I did a google search for a coach I wanted, after a few mins I found it in an on-line shop.
No issues at this point and all progressed well with the order, Payment and I also received all the delivery tracking information etc. However nothing arrived.
I tried to contact the seller but the emails are not being delivered. I've contacted the credit card bank and paypal who are now investigating what looks to be a scam Online shop.
So please don't order anything from this or any other site which has the email address hidden in their contacts.
I've since found many other website associated with the same scam. I understand the company running this scam uses similar web sites in different langauges.
The bit missed and was the biggest clue this was a scam was they were showing 800 units in stock for all items.'

For those who are technically minded and savvy on the internet be very wary if the Reverse DNS of the website is unknown or they use a pass through service like Cloudflare. They have something to hide.
These pass through services legitimately hide the owners of the websites they provide services to and will not disclose any info about them. They will forward complaints but will NEVER protect your interests or do anything to help you.
So if you do not recognise a site or see a deal that looks too good to be true. Then it surely is.

Scam Shopping Websites


As we hope you can appreciate we cannot visit every Shop and Supplier in the country. So your help and assistance is always greatly appreciated.
Alas, sometimes shops do close and we are invariably not informed, so it is always best to ring ahead if you are planning to make a special journey. If you do find a shop listed that is closed, please let us know to help others.
You can submit information on the forms that are on the following pages of the website;
Events, Clubs, Layouts, Information and a General Enquiries form for everything else.
Also, if you know of any Supplier or Retailer that isn't listed, why not let us know. Fellow modellers will surely benefit.
