Milton Keynes Model Railway Society today (8 June 2011) unveiled its new outdoor layout which was officially opened by representatives of three of our largest model railway companies – Bachmann, Hornby and PECO.

The event was organized to coincide with the Warley Model Railway Club Exhibition sponsors meeting which took place at Bletchley Park, the home since 1994 of Milton Keynes Model Railway Society. Warley MRC organise the UK’s largest model railway exhibition each year at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham and Milton Keynes MRS was delighted to host the event which has previously been held on a number of preserved railways.

The new layout has taken a year to build and replaced a previous layout which was on the same site for 10 years. The new facility offers tracks for 45mm, 32mm and 16.5mm running and has five circuits. The two 16.5mm circuits used 69 yards of PECO Streamline track.
