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, has been cancelled due to fire damage at Thornes Park Stadium.
Attempts were made to secure an alternative venue but, in light of the coronavirus pandemic, the club has decided that there will be no Wakefield Exhibition in 2020.
We were already aware that Thornes Park would not be available after this year due to planned refurbishment. A new venue has been secured for 2021. This will require a change of date. Watch this space for more details.
