Modern Railways RVE – the longest established show in the rolling stock calendar – has a new date for 2020: Thursday 5 November.

‘Since Key Publishing took over RVE in 2018 we have been striving to make the show bigger and better, in terms of both exhibitors and visitors’ said show manager Roger Mortimer. ‘Whilst we have produced two very successful events since the acquisition, we are constantly looking at ways to improve the show. With that in mind, we have responded to feedback and taken the decision to move RVE 2020 to Thursday 5 November. We are confident that this move will allow us to produce the biggest and best RVE show to date.’

The venue remains the ever-popular Derby Arena and a number of new attractions are set to supplement the successful format of trade exhibition, conference and the RVE Meet The Buyer programme orchestrated by Rail Forum Midlands.

Existing exhibitors have been informed of the new date and further announcements will be made via the event website – – and through Modern Railways magazine and associated channels over the coming months.
