We hope you can come join them (at the show, not at supper). Terry Wynne, Rapido's Chief Navvy (UK division), will also be at our booth this weekend. Terry used to work for British Rail, so you can commiserate with him at how rubbish the Voyagers are and how they can't hold a candle to a rake of loco-hauled Mk IIs. (I personally like Voyagers, but I'm getting off topic.)
is the biggest model railway exhibition in the UK, and let's face it: your country is tiny. I've driven to Ottawa and back in one day and that's almost 300 miles each way. If you have to drive that far to get to the NEC you probably live in Scotland or France.
For most of you, the NEC is an easy day trip. With the current state of British road traffic, you may need to leave your house in Watford at 02:00 to make it to the NEC by lunchtime, but what's a little lost sleep between friends? Go on - come to Warley.
Below are some photos to give you an incentive to join the Rapido guys at the NEC this weekend. No, I don't know what those white blobby things are either.
