Who are we?
We are a friendly group of individuals who enjoy a diverse range of model railway related activities in various gauges. The Club owns several layouts which are permanently available to members at our exclusive use premises in Beaconsfield.
What do we do?
At present we have O, OO and N gauge layouts in various states of completion. All members are encouraged to contribute their skills to the on-going tasks needed to complete the layouts. Tasks include elements of carpentry, electrical wiring, scenery and building construction. Locomotive and rolling stock running sessions take place once a month. Members enjoy operating their own stock on the Club layouts. From time to time we have demonstrations from competent persons with the aim of improving the modelling ability of our members. Skills are shared with each other for the mutual benefit of all members. The layouts occasionally feature at model railway exhibitions.
What facilities do we have?
In partnership with our landlords, in late 2015 we replaced one of our life-expired buildings with a new one. This has given us the opportunity to re-allocate where various projects are housed and make better use of the overall space available. We have two “main” clubrooms, of similar size, which between them house our “O”, three “OO” and “N” layouts, as well as an area for refreshments and a library. There is a separate workshop building and a separate storeroom.
When do we do it?
Scheduled Club activities take place every Friday (except Bank Holidays) between 7.30pm and 10pm.
If two or more members are keen, modelling may take place at other times during the week.
Who can join?
Anyone who is a Railway Modeller (or wanting to become one) is welcome to join. Our current membership covers from the novice to modellers with many years of experience. Individuals of any sex, ethnic origin, or age group, are welcome. We currently have members ranging from young adults to pensioners and from various walks of life. Prospective younger members must have a responsible person to accompany them on Club nights and other Club related activities.
How do I join?
Contact the Club Secretary, Ray Lewis (01753 677709) who will discuss the joining process, arrange to meet you on a Friday evening and show you around the Club rooms.
There is a modest annual membership subscription that equates to less than the cost of a pint of beer per week!
