National Rally 2016

Our 2016 National Rally took place across the weekend of 13th and 14th August at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre at Quainton, near Aylesbury.

The Venue

The Buckinghamshire Railway Centre is within easy reach of the M40, so very accessible from both north and south of the UK, and it provides a completely new backdrop for an 1100 Club event. The Centre occupies an extensive site in rolling countryside, and exhibits range from large express passenger locomotives to the humble shunting engine, together with a host of smaller items recreating the golden age of steam. There is a large model railway and on most summer open days there are full size steam trains operating up and down the line.


Concours judging took place on the Sunday.

The judging classes are Masterclass, Best Mk I, Best Mk II, Best Mk III, Best Vanden Plas, Best GT, Best Not to Original Spec, Best Kit Car and Best Visiting Classics. There will also be awards for President's Choice and Members' Choice, along with an award for Best Period Interior and for the member travelling the greatest distance to attend the event
