We have 11 layouts with track sizes ranging from a 30' 16mm narrow gauge layout running live steam models down to a tiny N gauge track built into its own carrying case. There will also be plenty of trade stalls selling (and buying) models, books and equipment for modelling scenery. Visit our website, www.scoutrail.org.uk for more information about the layouts and traders attending.


All weekend, our fantastic cafe offering bacon rolls, light meals and refreshments.


ScoutRail is hosted by members of the Kidlington Scout Group and has been running for more than 30 years. All proceeds go to the group to maintain its buildings and equipment.


Car parking: There is a car park on site, and if that fills up, there are additional car parks close by in Kidlington centre.


Accessibility: The venue is old not all parts are completely accessible to wheelchairs. The central area of the main hall (containing 5 layouts) is lower than the rest, and only accessible by a small number of steps. The venue entrance, toilets, cafe, small hall and the exhibits around the outer area of the main hall are, however, all on the same level.
