Next Saturday 1st November is the annual Wycrail model railway exhibition of the High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society, of which I am a member. Fisherton Sarum is returning to this exhibition having made its public debut at the 2006 show.
This year’s Wycrail ’14 exhibition will once again, take place at the now established, larger and bigher venue of The Cressex Community School, Holmers Lane, High Wycombe, Bucks HP12 4UD.
Wycrail ‘14 will have 28 high quality and inspirational model railway layouts, of British, North American and Continental outline and in a wide range of scales and gauges including 2mm finescale, N, 3mm, 00, H0, EM, P4, 0 and narrow gauges.
Layout highlights include: the delightful 2mm finescale ‘Tucking Mill’, Welsh narrow gauge in 009 with ‘That Dam Railway , ‘Georgemas Junction’ based on the real location in Scotland in 00, ‘Diesels in the Duchy’ recreating, in EM gauge, St Blazey during the 1980’s Sectorisation period, ‘Fourgig East’ in 0 guage and bringing a North American flavour in HO. ‘Galatia, KS’.
Full trade support will be present ranging from tools, kits, electronic components to R-T-R models and books.
Once again the Society has teamed up with the West Wales Wagon Works and commissioned a limited edition wagon based on a local coal merchant ‘Chesham and Wycombe Co-operative Coal Merchants’. The model that will be available at the show is based the Dapol 10t open wagon.
The venue is conveniently close to the M40 Junction 4 and the free vintage bus service will once again be operated between Wycombe Railway Station (Chiltern Line) and Wycombe Town Centre to the Cressex Community School.
It is always a good show so come along and say hello, you never know you might even get a Fisherton Sarum controller thrust into your hands! Further information and details can be found on the Societies website at www.hwdmrs.org.uk
