That's a good line up...including some Japanese stuff!

 

Yamanouchi Oshika is our offering, and I am really looking forward to the show. I have heard lots of positive comments about this show in the past.

I visited Wycrail '11 (the last in its old venue) and was impressed by the range of layouts, the 4mm contingent being represented by 00, EM and P4. I notice that here were no EM or P4 layouts last year nor are there any planned for November. Is there a reason for this?

Regards

Addison South is EM and Obbekaer is P87.

 

That is at least 2 that are finescale...

David

Without getting into too much of a debate, I do not believe that "fine scale" and "gauge" are mutually exclusive. We aim to include a wide range of what we consider quality layouts each year and the mix will always vary due to availability,space, and the overall mix of scales etc.
Whilst last years line up might not have included EM or P4 gauges it did include 2mm fs and 3mm fs layouts along with some exceptional examples of 4mm oo modelling.

There is certainly no bias as your post might possibly infer, please come along and say hello I hope you might enjoy the show and the overal quality of modelling on show.

I'll be bringing a layout along with some 16.5mm gauge homemade pointwork on. But unfortunately for most, it is HO scale.

Hi,

 

I'm going to have to withdraw the above statement, as it turns out my first leave period has been set over the weekend of Wycrail, so I will be there both on Saturday and the Friday evening set up, obviously someone at Network Rail knows whats going on...

Yes the bus will be running again from the town centre, railway station and the Cressex park and ride.

I'm afraid the cakes will not be there again as they all got eaten, but we will have some fresh ones instead!

Cheers, Dave.

We will be looking to seeing you both at the show, less than 4 weeks to go now....

 

For the show the High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society have commissioned a 7 plank Private Owner coal wagon from West Wales Wagon Wagon Works in the livery of local coal and coke merchant W. V. Baines & Son Ltd.  It will be available for purchase from either the Societies stand or from West Wales Wagon Wagon Works at the WYCRAIL exhibition

 

Further details on the wagon can be found on its own thread here.

Hello

 

       This show will be last appearance of my 'Brixworth Station' layout in England. It's final appearance will at Model Rail Glasgow next year and then it will be making the final journey to the scrap-yard. So come and see my pointless layout for a final time,  although it's equally pointless operators will hopefully be carrying on for a few years yet.

 

                                                                                                    Cheers

 

                                                                                                          George

Due to circumstances beyond our and the layout owners control Obbekaer is no longer able to attend so we have replaced it with Dawes Creek (Australian) N scale and a new trader Brunswick Railways Ltd.
I have updated the OP accordingly.

Car broke down just a few miles from home after travelling back from Warrington show tonight.
However a very simple fix to an apparently common problem by the breakdown man means we still have transport to bring Banbury!

Phew!!!!

See you in a few weeks.

Well, this coming Sunday will see Yamanouchi Oshika set up and given a thorough check over. There are a few little things that need repairing and improving, and there needs to be an operating crew re-familiarisation session!
