Rail Alliance and Rail Media recently held the RAIL2015 exhibition at the Quinton Rail Technology Centre (Long Marston).
With a focus on innovation and ingenuity, the event was targeted at the wider rail industry, rather than the infrastructure-specific events of previous years. As such, there was not a lot of plant on display, but was an interesting nonetheless.

Network Rail, in association with The Rail Alliance, Rail Media and Macrail organised the largest display of on-track plant the country has seen - the Rail Live 2014 at Long Marston.
Dubbed 'The Largest Outdoor Rail Event in the UK', the event certainly lived up to its name, with over 200 exhibitors and 250 vehicles & machines of various sizes.

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.
