Wyre Forest Model Railway Club
About Us
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 photo shows a member making Canadian Geese.
The club was formed in 1975 and since 2002 has 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.
