Saturday 27th October & Sunday 28th October Ė Rail-Ex Taunton 2012

The Somerset Railway Modellers Club 22nd Annual Rail-Ex Taunton show at Taunton School was a great success with numbers of visitors up from last year and an air of optimism in the air after the gloom of recession. The Committee would like to thank all our members and volunteers, those who attended with fabulous layouts, and trade support we received over the weekend including the provision of prizes for our show guide draw. We must mention especially the vintage bus service between the train station and show halls and the delicious catering Taunton School provided as adding that special character to the show.

This year the club prizes again were not easily decided as the quality of the layouts was outstanding in all gauges and eras:

Train World Cup

The Somerset Railway Modellers Club must thank all our visitors who made the show the success it was and hope they had as much fun attending as we had organising it. We hope to see you all again next year in the same place on the weekend of 26th & 27th October 2013 in half term where weíll make every attempt to present a show full of modelling interest and even better fun for all the family.
