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

Warley Model Railway Exhibition 2011 HD

Here is the complete video of my footage from the Warley Model Railway Exhibition 2011 event that I attended on the 19th of November. The selection of model train layouts was good but the event this year didn’t seem to be as busy like it normally is for most years. As I was didn’t make last year’s event due to illness, I was determined to make this one as Warley is one of the biggest model train shows in the UK. I have filmed layouts and trains of various scales from Z gauge to G gauge and some of the layouts like the Dutch N scale model layout from a group based in Holland was spectacular as I liked the large girder bridge and there was also a working lifting bridge at the other end of the layout as well. I also filmed Littleton Parkway which is a British OO Gauge layout with some customised Class 60 Diesel Locomotives which was 60059 in Loadhaul livery and 60500 in EWS livery which looked good, a SNCF HO scale layout which mostly had Diesel Locomotive hauled trains and Railcars and I also filmed an N scale SNCF layout which had Diesel and Electric Locomotive hauled trains which used Kato UniTrack which has been realisticly painted to match the real life tracks in France, I also filmed Yarborough which is one of my favourites as its a Modern Image British Layout which I filmed a Class 73 and a Class 156 in Central Trains livery running on the layout. Unfortunately my battery threw in the towel when I was filming Yarborough so I apologise for the short coverage. Apologies
