Network Rail, in association with The Rail Alliance and the rail engineer magazine organised the largest display of on-track plant the country has seen - the National Plant Exhibition at Long Marston. Dubbed 'The Track Innovation Showcase', we went along to see what was on display. Those familiar with the Long Marston site, an ex-MoD storage depot, will know that there's a huge amount of space and track. This was put to good use by over 200 exhibitors who were demonstrating their vehicles and products.
