Wyre Forest Model Railway Club

Welcome to the official website of the Wyre Forest Model

Railway Club based in Kidderminster, Worcestershire.

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 Sunday 28th October 2018

The club rooms will be open to the general public from 11.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. where at least 7 club layouts will be on display. This includes new layouts under construction and existing layouts being extended. Admission is free and light refreshments will be available although donations would be welcome. Members will be present to answer your modelling questions. We have test tracks in 3 gauges which can be operated by DC or DCC (Digital) on which you are welcome to operate your own trains. There is a private car park at the bottom of Comberton Hill between ‘Footplate’ and the Ring Road which you may use. The first running of the new Pendolino in the UK on Kinlet Wharf.

The new Pendolino (only 3 in the country at the time) passing over a busy canal scene
The Pendolino was kindly lent to us by Revolution Trains and performed excellently over the weekend
Also Revolution Trains had a pre- production un-powered class 92 loco which can be seen in front of our own set of Caledonian Sleeper carriages
Our 4th exhibition in Stourport took place on the 12th May 2018 at The Community Centre in Lower Lickhill Road. Eleven layouts were on display in Gauges '00' down to 'Z' all of which were owned by the club or our members.

The opening was attended by the Mayor of Bewdley,

Roger Coleman (left), and his Consort, John Byng.

A large number of children and their parents appeared to enjoy the occasion, especially as one layout was designed for the children to drive the trains themselves. A second hand stall of donated railway equipment was very popular and at least half of the proceeds will be given to the Midlands Air Ambulance. If you missed this years show we hope to be hosting another around about the same time in 2019.
