Rail Ex Taunton – Somerset Railway Modellers Club

October 21, 2017 @ 10:00 am - October 22, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

Rail Ex Taunton 2017: Bigger and Better, organised by Somerset Railway Modellers Club, returns to Taunton School on the weekend of 21st and 22nd October this year. Building on recent success and positive feedback from the public the show has expanded this year to fill two large and one smaller exhibition halls.

The increased floor space has permitted a substantial increase in the number of layouts expected with over 30 high quality and varied layouts booked. As ever, the trade support remains varied and will include five new stands while five existing traders will have larger stands at the show this year.
Even though the show will be bigger this year, we will be aiming to maintain its trademark friendly and welcoming atmosphere. As in previous years, there will be free parking on site, and blue badge spaces situated immediately next to the exhibition halls.

An added bonus of the Taunton School premises is that it boasts an excellent restaurant, offering a wide range of hot meals including a superb Sunday roast!

With so much to see and do at the event, this year we have introduced (for a small additional charge) a 2 day ticket to allow visitors to really get the most out of the exhibition.
