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. Members bring their own stock in on running nights or to use the test track for new purchases as no stock is held in the club.

CLUB ROOMS

Main Room Containing 6 layouts in various stages of development. There is also a circular test track fof ‘N’, ‘00’ and ‘0’ gauge which can be used as analogue or DCC. Front Room A large ‘00’ layout that is fixed in position and cannot be moved. It is controlled by DCC and the members bring their own tablets or smartphones to use as controllers. To avoid overcrowding in the front room the 'Wyrehampton' layout will now have a themed event each Tuesday. 1st Tuesday in each month - Will be dedicated to Diesel and Electric running 2nd Tuesday - Dedicated to timetable running 3rd Tuesday - Dedicated to the running of steam hauled trains 4th Tuesday - Maintenance evening 5th Tuesday - Mixed night (anything goes) Modelling Room We have installed a 16 ft workbench which has room for 5 members to make models ready to be installed on a layout. There is also a storage unit with removal drawers for all odd modelling items that may be required. STOURPORT EXHIBITION, SATURDAY 17th SEPTEMBER 2022

Our annual exhibition was held this year on September 17th, rather than in the spring, at our usual venue

of the Stourport Community Centre, Lower Lickhill Road, Stourport DY13 8RW

Various club and member's layouts were on display in a variety of gauges. The second hand stall did well

with £200 of the income being donated to the Midlands Air Ambulance. Due to the recent death of one of

our members two of the layouts were sold.

Light refreshments were available as well as free parking and disabled access.

Open Day

The club will be open to the public in the Spring of 2023. A date and time have yet to be fixed. New members are always very welcome and we will be pleased to see you on any Tuesday evening if you are unable to attend an open day.
