With only a few weeks to go before Infrarail 2012 at the NEC (1-3 May 2012), the Rail Alliance is putting the final touches to its boulevard-style exhibition space.

So far, we have allocated 130+ square metres to the following members: ArcGen, Bernstein, Coe, Coffey Construction, Flexicon, Nightsearcher, Sapa Profiles, Wireless CCTV, Wor Rail/Wor Lifts, York EMC Services with more to come!
