    WYCRAIL Exhibition puts railway modelling into perspective on Saturday 2nd November.
     
    Whilst the enthusiasm for the hobby once again getting a boost from The Great Model Railway Challenge on prime time Channel 5 TV WYCRAIL is delighted that one of last year’s competition layouts attending is ‘Ealing Road’, this was built by the Missenden Modellers team, the theme of their heat was ‘Movies’ and the team opted to base theirs on a medley of the Ealing Studios films of the early fifties, regarded by many as the high point in British Cinema. One of the highlights and impressive features of ‘Ealing Road’ is use of forced perspective both within the models on the layout itself and within the effective backscene.
     
    This year’s WYCRAIL ’19 exhibition will once again take place at The Cressex Community School, Holmers Lane, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. HP12 4UD on Saturday 2nd November.  
     
    With 29 high quality and inspirational model railway layouts, as ever WYCRAIL ‘19 is firmly established as being one of the largest and best supported one day model railway exhibitions in the South East of England. This impressive layout line-up will include British, North American and Continental outline and in a wide range of scales and gauges including Z, 2mm, N, 00, H0, EM, S, 0, G and narrow gauges.
     
    Layout highlights in addition to ‘Ealing Road’ include: Haversham Central (N), Kyle of Lochaish (2mm FS), Whitmoor (N), Staffordshire Pottery (N) Ilfracombe East (009), Lake Bank (3mm), Lynth-Haven (00), Daisyfield Traincare (00), Thornfield (00), Trinity Dock Street Bridge (00), Upper Oreful Street (00 Trams), Burton Bradstock (EM),Trowland (S), Belbroughton (0), Bristol Goods Shed (7mm FS), Vale View (0), Whiteleaf Railway (G), Sanhei Valley (Z Japanese), Salinas Valley (H0, North American), Kidmore Fork (H0 North American) Sevanda (H0 Norwegian)
     
    Once again, our own Society’s junior section layout ‘Mothercombe’ (00) will be on display showing its continued excellent progress and confirming the perspective that the hobby is alive and well with our younger members!
     
    Full trade support will be present ranging from tools, kits, electronic components to R-T-R models and books.
     
    Opening times are between 10am and 5pm.
     
    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 and via the new large Park and Ride free car park at the Handy Cross Hub.
