Modern Railways buys RVE


We are delighted to announce that Modern Railways magazine has purchased the Rail Vehicles and Enhancements exhibition and trade show.

The show, held annually in October and previously run by Onyx Rail, brings together companies and organisations from across the industry involved with all aspects of rail vehicle construction, refurbishment, enhancements and maintenance. Over the last six years the show has grown significantly, with almost 90 exhibiting companies attracting over 1,100 business buyers in 2017. As well as the exhibition RVE includes a forum, chaired by Modern Railways columnist Ian Walmsley, featuring presentations from high calibre industry speakers about rolling stock and rail vehicle enhancement. For the last two years RVE has also hosted a Meet the Buyer event organised by the Department for International Trade.

As a supporter of and exhibitor at the show, Modern Railways is delighted to have added RVE to its portfolio. The 2018 show will take place at the Derby Velodrome on 4 October, and we will announce further details about this year’s event during the coming months. In the meantime, if you are interested in exhibiting at the RVE please contact David Lane at
