TCS Summer Show near Aylesbury Bucks 6 th July 2019

The Train Collectors Society will be holding our 21th Summer show again at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium close to the famous hospital near Aylesbury Buckinghamshire .  There will be a large hall as before with at least 20 working model and toy train displays and over 20 specialist model and toy train traders.  We also plan to hold our popular Bring and Buy stand for TCS members so bring along your unwanted items. There will be plenty of free parking space and hot and cold food and refreshments in the cafeteria in the entrance to the main centre a few yards away. This venue and the facilities were very well liked in 2018.  The club's motto is; any make, any gauge and any age so you will find trains running that are over 80 years old right up to modern trains available today, we expect trains will be running in gauges 00, H0, S gauge, 0 gauge and gauge one from dozens of manufacturers from around the world. There will also be 0 gauge live steam trains running.

This year the following layouts will be on display:

  • Hornby 0 gauge included three layouts 
  • Hornby  Dublo two rail
  • Hornby  Dublo three rail
  • Hornby 00 live steam 
  • 0 gauge live steam 1930's
  • American Flyer S gauge 
  • Standard gauge Lionel

In addition there will be also 22 specialist traders.
