Model Railway Club
Part of the main club room with two
members discussing one of the 'N' gauge
layouts over a cup of tea, which is always
available on club nights.
The quiet room where a new worktop has
been built for members to carry out the
smaller modelling tasks away from the
main layouts or to just read one of the
modelling magazines that the club has
collected over many years.

The club was formed in 1975 and for the last 12 years have rented premises at the bottom of Comberton
Hill, Kidderminster (Above Footplate) where a number of layouts are either operational, being built or being
rebuilt to a higher standard.
We presently have around 40 members who have expertise in both 4 mm. ‘00’ and 2 mm. ‘N’ Gauge
modelling as well as a group of members modelling in 0–16.5 narrow gauge. Although most members have
modelled using traditional analogue control in the past we also now have members with experience of
D.C.C. (digital) control including sound.
Membership has a number of advantages the most important being the exchange of ideas and the useful
knowledge that can be obtained by talking to experienced modellers. We do not consider ourselves to be
rivet counters but good experienced modellers in the smaller gauges.
Our normal modelling night is a Tuesday from 7.00 p.m. to 10.00 p.m., although it has been agreed that the
team on the main ‘00’ gauge can also meet on a Friday evening. We would also like to meet on a Thursday
evening if we have sufficient support.
Our Annual subscription is low with a weekly charge made when a member attends, which does mean that
membership is not expensive for those modellers who cannot attend the club every week.
