Warley National Model Railway Exhibition 2012 HD

This year’s video footage of the event which is held yearly at the Birmingham NEC in Hall 5 and my second video in HD. Overall the event was great but I would have liked to have seen more modern image layouts in OO gauge. Although for those of you that like steam trains, there was plenty of layouts that are based in the steam era. Also that impressive N gauge Dutch layout was not present this year which is a shame as I do like that layout. However there was an impressive Irish tram layout set in “O’Connell Street” in Dublin that has amazing amount of detail and funny enough I walked down the real street in October 2011, but thats another story. There is an interesting Italian layout in HO scale that I filmed which is also one of my favourites that I saw there as well which is new to my library of Warley MRE videos. I also filmed some American, Dutch some additional British Layouts in N and HO scale as well. I apologise for the jolts in this video in some parts as a couple of anoraks from the “Backpack Brigade” rammed my arm when I was filming so I hope that it doesn’t spoil the view too much as I use the barriers to rest my arm on as a “tripod” as I believe normal tripods are not allowed at the event due to Health and Safety. Personally I think large backpacks should be banned from the hall as they cause obstructions. That aside, it was a great day and I enjoyed a chat with fellow enthusiasts as well as a bit of banter with the exhibitors. I have left the ratings open on
