A Bucks model railway society announced its birthday exhibition in Beaconsfield this summer.

As the Beaconsfield Model Railway Society is turning 60 years, the club members want to honour their well-loved club with a railway exhibition on July 2.

After a forced hiatus because of the pandemic, steam trains will impress audiences at the Beaconsfield School Saturday exhibition in Old Town, Wattleton Road between 10.30 and 4.30pm.

Ray Lewis, the Club’s secretary, said: “Our 2020 and 2021 Exhibitions were cancelled due to the pandemic, and we are delighted to be back as we hadn't missed a year since 1968.”

While Ray, who has been a member since 1971, said the group might not be “the most skillfull bunch of modelers around”, they are guaranteed to be the friendliest.

Alex Holmes, 48, who joined this year, said: "People have been busy during Covid getting their old train sets down from the attic."

"I had a few trains from when I was little. When the first lock down hit I dug them out and started a small layout again.” 

The club, which was formed in the summer of 1962 in Marlow, held its first exhibition in Beaconsfield in 1968, and one was held annually until Covid hit in 2020.
