Wycrail 19 - High Wycombe - Putting perspective into the hobby

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Whilst the enthusiasm for the hobby is 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.

 

The Society itself also has had a new perspective this year having moved into new bright and air-conditioned clubrooms right in the centre of town, overlooking High Wycombe railway station, so we can further develop modelling within the society whilst watching 1:1 scale Chiltern Line trains pass by!

 

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.

 

Admisson price is only £7 per person (no concessions) with any accompanied under 16 year old entering FREE! 

 

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.

Always a great show, one of the best one-dayers in SE. The school car park does fill fairly quickly on the morning so the 5 minute ride on free 1950s LT bus from the Handy Cross park and ride right next to M40 junction is a good alternative. Otherwise there is plenty of unrestricted parking in side streets immediately north of school entrance!

Many thanks to all whom who came to the Wycrail show today, we certainly are very please with how it  went and received many positive comments. 


Thanks also to the Cressex Community School for their continued flexibility and support; the 3rd High Wycombe (Downley) Scouts for their hard graft moving tables and barriers and providing the excellent exhibitor catering; and also our Local community radio station Wycombe Sound for their support and promotion of the show and allowing me to feed live updates and reports on air from the show this morning. 

Thanks again to all involved and the date for next years Wycrail is Saturday 7th November.

Some excellent layouts on display today, meant it was well worth the trip round the M25 in the horrendous rain this morning.  Hopefully the weather and the rugby didn't affect the numbers through the door too much.

A big thanks to Dave Fryer, Graham and all the Wycrail team for the hospitality yesterday whilst exhibiting KoL. 
 

The show was very well organised and the exhibition team friendly and helpful. Cracking lunch of Jacket potato and Chilli with a slice of Black Forest Gateaux for pud!

 

The layout generally behaved itself and I received a lot of nice comments.

 

My left ear is slightly deaf today as I had a PA speaker behind me so got the brunt of the rugby score updates and notifications of cars which had left their lights on or parked in bus standbys :laugh:

 

All in all a very nice show. I was on my Tod yesterday so didn’t really get a chance to have a good look around but the two layouts that caught my eye, and I would have liked to spend more time admiring were both 7mm being Treloar Sidings and Vale View - a few pics below.
