 +===== Where Have I Seen Ealing Road? ===== 
 +<WRAP info round> 
 +<WRAP centeralign>​{{:​public:​ealing_road_by_knickerbocker.jpg?​nolink&​600|}} </​WRAP>​ 
 +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.
