    Event Name: FestiRail Model Railway Exhibition

    Classification: Exhibition

    Address: Community Centre(adjacent to Springs swimming pool), Wades Park, Stratton Road, Princes Risborough, Bucks, HP27 9AX

    Day 1: 7th of July 2018

    Opening times Day 1: 11.00am - 4.00pm

    Prices: FREE

    Disability access: Yes

    Car parking: No

    Website: http://www.rdmrc.org.uk

    Organising body: Risborough & District Model Railway Club

    The whole of the Community Centre is taken over for one day as part of the Princes Risborough Town Festival Week. Allowing the Club to display various model making demonstrations, along with a number of layouts to include, Okehampton (O), Aylesbury Town (P4), Loughborough Road (OO), Ottilies (OO) and the Shunting Puzzle (O), plus please note we are proud to present the last ever full public showing of Geoff Williams’s iconic 1:76 scale Aylesbury LNWR layout. This fifty-five year old model of the former Aylesbury High Street station (once situated where Vale Park is today) represents faithfully the whole station complex - including engine shed, goods yard and adjoining gas works - as it would have looked in the year 1911. Built to a very high standard of realism the model achieves a convincing sense of scenic depth through the decreasing perspective of the background building, and provides a possibly the last opportunity to view a pre First World War scene of Aylesbury. Being originally built into Geoff’s loft the layout has since been adapted for public viewing, for its appearance at FestiRail, which it is anticipated will attract considerable interest both from local residents and from the wider exhibition-going public - particularly as this opportunity is un-likely to be repeated by the Club. Only disabled car parking places are available at the Community Centre, therefore all other visitors are required to park in the Mount Carpark in Stratton Road (Follow brown Leisure Centre signs to just past St. Mary's Church). Please note that this is pay and display. Half hourly bus service from Aylesbury or High Wycombe. 15 minute walk from Chiltern Railway station with regular trains from Birmingham, Banbury, Aylesbury or London Marylebone, 25 minutes drive from M40 Junction 6 via B4009. Light refreshments will be available.

  • Recent Event Reviews

    • Mendip 2019
      By John P.,
         A very mixed show with several scales and prototypes shown. Unfortunately Hook Basin had to cancel on Friday morning.
      Still a good show. Excellent refreshments, easy parking what more could you want? Unless you were expecting any OO stuff,
      there wasn't any!
      I enjoyed being  a part of this show exhibiting Burnham.
    • ALSRM Annual Show
      By Donw,
         I have rated this based on last year so anyone knows it should be worth going to. I will update it tomorrow after the event although that will be too late to help anyone. The event always has some excellent layouts and there is a good range of trade stands for 7mm and larger. If you are looking for boxshifters of 00 stuff forget it. but there are some good traders there.
    • Railex 2019 Model Railway Exhibition
      By Kingzance,
         It has been some time since I last went to an exhibition and this one, whilst more than an hour away from me with no direct public transport route available, offers a wide range of suppliers / trade stands and some of the layouts that I have found inspirational from the modelling press. Not being as large as Warley, I feel it will be much more "do-able" in one full day whereas anything larger and you feel you have missed part of it. I will be ordering bits from a few suppliers (Alan Gibson, Green Scene, ModelU at least) in advance so I can pick up my needs on the day.
    • Guildford 'O' Gauge Group open day
      By paftrain,
         For some unknown reason it has appeared on the wrong day! It should read 7th April NOT 9th. Could mods please correct this?
    • The 6th Chris Kedgeley Memorial Skills Day
      By NorthHighlander,
         An excellent day. I was invited late to attend as a demonstrator and I didn’t get much chance to look around which is a very positive thing. I took along one board from Tregaron Upper plus the fiddle yard. The TU board is 41 years old and at the end of the day I ran the first loco on it EVER! Thanks to Jim’s Summers, Mackenzie and Pairman and Richard Chown for helping me. Got home at midnight 50 and crashed out on Sunday!
