Get Involved with "Orchard Wharf"

Orchard Aug 18Joining The MRC is a great way to learn from the range and wealth of knowledge of the other members, and getting directly involved in one of the layout groups is an even better way to learn and enjoy your membership.

We may not have a layout group that exactly matches your specific modelling interests, but most of layout teams have people with a wide range of tastes and experience, that come together because of the enjoyment of being involved in a collaborative project. Our new EM gauge layout is no exception.

MRC Takes Gold and Silver

BRMA logo 2017

We're delighted that our layout "Copenhagen Fields" has won "Layout of the Year" at the British Railway Modelling Awards 2017. The ever popular 2mm finecale layout of the area of London north of King's Cross has been evolving for over 30 years, and continues to grow. Under the leadership of Tim Watson and Mike Randall the team are delighted to be recognised for the love and time they have put into this project.

The London Festival of Railway Modelling was runner up in the "Exhibition of the Year" award. We work with Warners - publishers of British Railway Modelling - to organise the layouts & demonstrators and steward the show every March at Alexandra Palace. The exhibition team - which includes over 60 of our members - is looking forward to this years show on 24th and 25th March.

Full details of the awards and other winners are here - thanks to everyone who voted.
