Fisherton Sarum is appearing as one of the guest layouts at the High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society open day at its clubrooms next Saturday 21st May. With only one other exhibition appearance in the calendar for Fisherton Sarum this year being Barnstaple on 30th July, it provides an opportunity to see the layout in a relaxed environment slightly different from a usual exhibition.

These layouts include Hinton Parva (00), Cane Street (00), Prospect Point (H0), Prospect Valley (H0), Cariboo (H0), Quincey and Cedar Creek (0n30), Itldo (0); and a number under construction such as Oxford (00), and Leigh Quay (0). In addition facilities include a large test track in N, 12mm, 00/H0 and 0 Gauges, an extensive workshop and a kitchen / refreshment area. Also for the open day a number of the Society’s own members layouts in addition to Fisherton Sarum will be set up and operating.
The Society’s club rooms will be open between 10am and 4pm, there is small entry donation of £2 per person that includes light refreshments, access to the test track and a chance to see behind the scenes on the Society’s and visiting layouts.
