RAILEX BUXTON 2022 sees railway modelling return to the town after a long absence. It promises to become a staple show in both regional and national exhibition calenders. Presenting 60+ stands including working model railways, society and clubs displays and an array of modelling demonstrators supported by the regions best traders and national specialists suppliers.


The show is organised and run by a voluntary team of modellers self titled ‘the freinds of Railex Buxton’ who come from across the UK bringing a wealth of experience in building and exhibiting model railways. We are also fortunate to be supported by many model and prototype railway societies and experts.


Events such as these are often attended by modellers or those with fond memories of similar family activities. Additionally it is our intention to expand the awareness and access of our interest further, by staging our event in the expansive and welcoming public visitor attraction that is the ‘Octagon’ and by making our show as open and educational as possible; we hope that those who have yet to discover the fascinating and enduring pastime, and indeed art form, that can be railway modelling, find it as enthralling as we do.

We invite you, young and old, experienced or not, to allow us to entertain and hopefully inspire you for a few hours either as part of a wider visit to Buxton or specifically to attend for a longer period and are confident that you’ll be pleased you took the time to attend our event.

CONTACTING US We can be contacted either at other event’s on our publicity stand or via our facebook page.
