The High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society will be holding their annual WYCRAIL Exhibition on Saturday 2nd November 2019.

Now in its 47th year the WYCRAIL 2019 exhibition is firmly established as being one of the largest and best supported one day model railway exhibitions in the South East of England.

The WYCRAIL exhibition will take place at The Cressex Community School, Holmers Lane, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, HP12 4UD on Saturday 2nd November 2019 from 10.00am and 5.00pm. Admission price is only £7 per person (no concessions) with any accompanied under 16 year old entering for FREE.

WYCRAIL 2019 will feature an impressive line-up of 29 high quality and inspirational model railway layouts of British, North American and Continental outline and in a wide range of scales and gauges including Z, 2mm, N, 00, H0, EM, 0, G and narrow gauges.

The High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society’s junior section layout ‘Mothercombe’ (00) will be on display showing its continued excellent progress and confirming the perspective that the hobby is alive and well with the societies younger members!

Full trade support will be present at the exhibition ranging from tools, kits, electronic components to ready-to-run models and books.

The venue is located conveniently close to Junction 4 of the M40 and the free vintage bus service will once again operate between Wycombe Railway Station (Chiltern Line with direct connections to/from London Marylebone, Birmingham, Oxford and Aylesbury) and Wycombe Town Centre to the Cressex Community School and via the new Park and Ride large free car park at the Handy Cross Hub.

The hobby of railway modelling is once again getting a boost from The Great Model Railway Challenge on prime time Channel 5 TV. One of last year’s competition layouts, ‘Ealing Road’ built by the Missenden Modellers team, will be attending WYCRAIL 2019. The theme of their heat was ‘Movies’ and the team opted to base theirs on a medley of the Ealing Studios films of the early fifties, regarded by many as the high point in British Cinema. One of the highlights and impressive features of ‘Ealing Road’ is use of forced perspective both within the models on the layout itself and within the effective back scene.

The High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society itself also has had a new perspective in 2019 following their move into new bright and air-conditioned clubrooms right in the centre of High Wycombe overlooking the railway station enabling the further development of modelling within the society whilst watching 1:1 scale Chiltern Line trains pass by on their way to London, Oxford, Aylesbury, Birmingham and beyond!
