The Risborough & District Model Railway Club is 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 possibly the last opportunity to view a pre First World War scene of Aylesbury.
Being originally built in 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 unlikely to be repeated by the Club.

FestiRail Model Railway Exhibition is the Club’s contribution as part of the Princes Risborough Town Festival week, which this year takes place on July 7th between 11am and 4pm at Princes Risborough Community Centre. Full details may be found on our website at www.rdmrc.org.uk
