Posts Tagged ‘W. V. Baines & Son Ltd’

I make no apologies for repeating myself a little but as I am long time member, and indeed past Chairman and now Press Officer, of the the High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society it would be wrong of me not to promote this year’s WYCRAIL ’13 exhibition that takes place this coming Saturday, November 2nd. 

Once again, following last years successful move, it is being held at the the bigger, better and brighter venue of The Cressex Community School, Holmers Lane, High Wycombe, Bucks HP12 4UD

WYCRAIL ‘13 will have 31 (yes 31,  it has increased since earlier posts!)  high quality and inspirational model railway layouts, of both British, North American and Continental outline and in a wide range of scales and gauges including Z, N, 3mm, 00, H0, EM, P4, 0 and narrow gauges. Full trade support will be present ranging from tools, kits, electronic components to R-T-R models and books. Hornby Hobbies will once again be a welcome presence at the show.

The venue is conveniently close to the M40 Junction 4 and the free vintage bus service will once again be operated between Wycombe Railway Station (Chiltern Line), Wycombe Town Centre and the and the nearby free Cressex (Cinema) Park and Ride to the Cressex Community School.

???????????????????????????????Following on from my last post here about the limited edition High Wycombe based PO wagon “Baines & Sons”, I can now show the picture  of the actual being sold at the show on both the Societies Stand and also from the West Wales Wagon Wagon Works stand. There is a weathered version also available but are only limited supplies so to get in quick if you want that particular version.

I look forward to seeing some of you there, please come and find me and say hello.

High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society have commissioned a 7 plank Private Owner coal wagon from West Wales Wagon Wagon Works in the livery of local coal and coke merchant W. V. Baines & Son Ltd.

Based at 20 Frogmore, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, W. V. Baines & Son Ltd was one of the largest transport company with a branch dedicated to fuel supplies in the area. Their coal office was situated in Prior Road opposite the old fire station (now part of Primart’s shop).  The company no longer exists and no photographic records have been found but we know from records of wagon ownership held by Longmoor publishers that Baines had one or more private owner wagons.
