The Warley 2012 model railway show is an annual event and is held at the National Exhibition Center in Birmingham , UK . Located right next to Birmingham International Airport and having many hotels on site it is a easy venue to access. This year saw the 25th anniversary of the exhibition at the NEC. There were numerous traders and brand names , demonstration stands and lovely layouts on display …. view the complete gallery .

the rush of people was maddening…… it took a while to get a ticket and get past the entrance ….. viewing layouts and accessing trader stand was an ordeal ..

Bath Green Park…..is certainly one of my favorites and i have seen it grow over the years having visited it first when it was under construction in Taunton way back in 2005 .. i think it was …. it is OO gauge layout but built to very high standards …
