The Wakefield Railway Modellers’ Society was founded in March 1958 to cater for those modellers interested in small scale model railways in the Wakefield area. The Society has since prospered and now owns its own spacious 2 storey premises near the city centre and organises a yearly exhibition. Members have a wide range of interests in all aspects of railway modelling and the prototype railway scene.
The 59th Wakefield Railway Modellers’ Society exhibition, due to be held on 13th – 15th November 2020, was cancelled due to fire damage at Thornes Park Stadium.
A new venue had been secured for 2021, which would have required a change of date to early September. However, the uncertainties regarding coronavirus and the lack of access to start preparations meant we had to cancel the 2021 exhibition.
