It's an institution!

For the third year running we are pleased to announce the RailEx show is being held at the Walter Nash Centre in Taita, Lower Hutt.

What can you look forward to?

RailEx is NZ's largest model train show.   We have between 30 and 40 layouts of various sizes as well as supporting exhibitors.  As always we have a few surprises planned for this year involving new layouts and items of interest.     

Adults and kids alike are attracted to the layout displays for their movement, animation and life-like presentation.  

You can also expect to see train related displays from local train societies and some new traders and hobby suppliers to tempt you, or perhaps just great timing in finding that awesome model train set or toy before Christmas.

Admission prices are as follows ...

Entertainment for all ...

Regardless of your age, the RailEx show offers something for everyone.  The modellers take a lot of care to add interesting little details that wait for your discovery.  

It's easy to spend several to many hours viewing the RailEx layouts and exhibits. Take your time to look at and watch a layout fully. Many include sequences that trigger events from time to time. 

The exhibitors are keen to show off their hobby and welcome the opportunity to chat about their layouts and displays.

Getting there ... 

The Walter Nash Centre (WNC) again delivered a fantastic experience to all those who visited the 2017 showIts big and bright and easy to get to. The WNC is in the block between Taine and Tocker Streets, with the main entrance on Taine Street. 

If you have been involved with Netball then you'll probably know the WNC is beside the Hutt Valley Netball courts.
If you aren't sure then don't worry,  as we said the WNC it's easy to find!

By Car:    Head north on High Street from Lower Hutt (5km) or turn left onto High Street at the first roundabout after coming off the Kennedy Good Bridge from SH2. Travel another 2.7km to WNC.   Taine and Tocker Streets in Taita are on your left.

By Rail:   This is a great transport option!   Take the Tranz Metro HVL to Taita Station.  Hop off and head straight down through  the underpass.  The WNC is directly in front of you, less than 100 metres to walk!
