Marlow, Maidenhead & District, Model Railway Club model railway exhibition

After a Christmas whirlwind of indulgence and family visiting I have come back to my blog for 2017. I hope that all of my readers also had a good Christmas and I look forward to an exciting new year ahead.

My first trip out was to the Marlow, Maidenhead & District, Model Railway Club (MMDMRC) annual model railway exhibition at Cox Green Community Centre. Parking was busy but Wayne managed to grab a slot right near the front door and we went to join the queue snaking out the door to get in. Inside the hall was packed with people of all ages who were looking at all the intricate models.

There was a Z-guage (very small) layout of the Japanese Bullet Train going over a viaduct like a snake, as well as other highly detailed layouts in other scales. One of these was a depiction of an East German railway during the Cold War years. There were also layouts exhibited by individuals and other local clubs, and trade stands selling rolling stock and modelling supplies.

I was tempted by the smell of bacon and sausage rolls coming from the kitchen area and was not disappointed when having a bacon roll for my lunch.

Access to Cox Green Community Centre is flat and most of the layouts were visible from my wheelchair. A good event to start the year at only £4.50 entrance fee.
