Where Have I Seen Ealing Road?

The group supplied expertise and manpower to mount an entry to the 'Great Model Railway Challenge' and Missenden Modellers as its identity (the Bucks County adult education centre at Great Missenden offers railway modelling courses). Their 'Ealing Road' layout featured MERG components and has subsequently been exhibited on a number of occasions and featured in the Model Railway press (an edition of British Railway Modeller). A description of this (and other MERG related entries to the challenge) appeared in the MERG journal Vol 52 December 2018.
