As editor I have seen the S4SW line up, but I am not at liberty to say what I saw!
No clues yet on http://railwells.com/ I see.

Hi Steve,

It's just worked for me - the link I googled for is http://railwells.com/railway-show/railwells-show-2017/

I just accessed the Wells website via the link to the home page that Tim gave.

Seems to be working fine and dandy but still only shows traders and societies. Layouts and demonstrators to follow. There is a Committee meeting of the Fraternity on July 11 so I will raise it with Chris then if nothing appears in the meantime. I'm not sure if Chris updates the website himself or if our webmaster does it and he is always a very busy boy.

Having recently received an update from Chris Challis, I have now published the current show details on the Scalefour Southwest 25 page. I imagine the webmaster for the Railwells site will be updating there soon too.

In due course, I do anticipate publishing the guide here too.

That's a very impressive line up. If only I lived a bit nearer! :cry:

And a little sooner than I imagined, the guide is now available to download from the show page.

The show guide has been sent to the publisher for printing, along with the next Scalefour News. There may be amendments to the line up between now and August.

Having just looked, I see it is doable. I shall have to have a word with Natalie and see what she thinks. If I can consider going to Wakefield and York, and also Lydd next month, then Wells isn't so bad (and nearer than either of those).

Just a quick note re parking for this year's Railwells / Scalefour Southwest.

The exhibition guide contained in Scalefour News 203 says that there will be free parking again this year.

According to the Railwells website there is a car boot sale on Saturday and the parking will be £3 all day. However Sunday will be free.

Latest information is that the £3 charge on Palace Field for Saturday is correct.

Thank you both. Chris has asked me to make the same change on our website - £3 on Saturday for parking, and free (as usual) on Sunday.

I visited Railwells yesterday and have uploaded the pictures that I took to the Society's Facebook Page and also to my own Railwells 2017 Album on Flickr Account.

A most enjoyable day out.

All the Best
