Wyre Forest Model Railway Club

Welcome to the official website of the Wyre Forest Model

Railway Club based in Kidderminster, Worcestershire.

NEWS - Club now fully open

We are happy to announce that the club has now fully re-opened following the lifting of Government restrictions. However, for the time being it is felt that the members and visitors should continue to wear a face mask and observe social distancing whenever possible. At times it may be necessary to restrict numbers in the smaller rooms although to date this has not been necessary. The A.G.M. that normally takes place in June is now set for the 5th October 2021 at 7.45 p.m. in the clubrooms. Due to Comberton Hill being closed to all traffic the A.G.M. has been moved o the 12th October 2021.

THE CLUB

The club meets every Tuesday evening from 7.00 p.m. You are welcome to come along and find out more about the Club’s facilities and layouts. The club usually holds an annual exhibition in Stourport around May and an open day in the Club rooms in October. Persons with an interest in railways are invited to visit either event. Members will be on hand at both events to show you the club layouts in operation and to answer any questions you may have about the hobby. The club has a number of layouts in different gauges either operational or at various stages of construction.

OPEN DAY 24th OCTOBER 2021

Our next open day will be on Sunday 24th October 2021 from 11.00 a.m. to 4 p.m.in the clubrooms situated at the bottom of Comberton Hill, Kidderminster, above 'Footplate'. No admission charge but a donation will be welcome. Please wear a mask. Most of the club layouts and the test tracks (analogue or DCC), which can be used by visitors, will be operational and our members will be available to answer any questions you may have about the hobby or the club. Light refreshments of tea and biscuits will be available.

CLUB ROOMS

To avoid overcrowding in the front room the 'Wyrehampton' layout will now have a themed event each Tuesday. Over a 4 week period these will include evenings for steam running, diesel running, timetabled running and maintenance.
