We are a small group who meet in our own club room in Chorleywood and always welcome new members. Most of our members model UK railways from various parts of the country.
We are always looking to recruit new members, so if you live in Amersham, Little Chalfont, Chorleywood or areas nearby and want to get involved with model railways, contact us by email - firstname.lastname@example.org and come along to a running session.
Our next running session is: Wednesday 28th August 2000-2200
Monday 26th August is a bank holiday and the club hut will not be open
The club has layouts in gauges "O", "OO" and "OO9". The test track has "OO", "EM", "3mmFS", N/009 and "HOm".
The '0' gauge layout has been undergoing some relaying and rewiring. It is now ready for regular running sessions.
The '00' gauge layout has also been undergoing major works, particularly to the station area. All the trackwork is now laid and is ballasted. There remains plenty to do still, especially on the scenic side!
There is a second '00' layout primarily designed for exhibiting, Quarry Halt. It has had several successful outings.
John brought the 009 layout out of storage and it has been run successfully for a few sessions.
Most of us have some form of layout at home, some have more than one, our chairman has a magnificent "OO" layout in the garden.
Most of us buy ready-to-run models and enhance them to varying degrees, others prefer to build from kits. The ready availability of R-T-R in 4mm means most of us use them at running sessions, but a lot of the '0' gauge stock has been built from kits.
If you are already a railway modeller, want to pick it up again or are just starting out, then come along and see what we do. Contact us using our email address: email@example.com
Latest News 22nd July 2019
Club AGM is Wednesday 18th September 2019 starting at 2000 sharp. All members are welcome to attend, but only those who are fully paid up can vote. Subs were due on the 1st July. Apologies for absence to the committee please.
The AGM agenda is now available and all members will get a copy.
If you have any items you wish to discuss please send them to the committee using our email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) or directly to a member of the committee.
Three official running sessions per month. The schedule is available here.
The 2018 AGM passed a resolution to have an additional running session per month. There was some concern amongst members that there would be no time for maintenance. The list of running sessions shewn on this website allow for a minimum of one session clear of running between official dates. The mnemonic for remembering the dates is: First Wednesday, Third Monday, Fourth Wednesday. The full list is here.
The success or otherwise of this schedule may be discussed at the 2019 AGM, if you as a member have any thoughts please raise them at the meeting.
During a running session all available layouts are ready for use at the club - this is at least the '00' and the '0' gauge. If JohnB has his '009' layout set up that too is available.
Further scenery work on the 00 layout - volunteers wanted!
This layout has now moved onto all the small details that make a model railway come alive. There is a list of items needed and all members are encouraged to take on a project. Some items are available as kits, others will rely on your ingenuity. The current list is here.
A recent running session had a Class 52 approaching the bridge over the canal on the '00' layout
