  • Our own dedicated club rooms in the heart of London, with licenced bar serving refreshments at weekly Thursday Club meetings
  • Test tracks – a chance to run your models on our multigauge test tracks in all the major gauges from N to O (including 4 OO circuits) – whether you use DC or DCC
  • Six layouts in a variety of gauges – with three currently available for exhibitions and another three in build (layout groups meet on a variety of days through the week)
  • Access to our library – one of the largest collections of books on the prototype and modelling
  • A workshop, equipped with key tools to help with model and layout construction
  • Learn from others – either through one of our layout groups, or sharing a challenge at one of our meetings.
  • Our own interactive online Forum – non members can see just a few items, but there is a growing forum to update and discuss projects and ideas in the members’ area
  • Lecture programme – monthly during the autumn, winter and spring a range of interesting speakers and subjects
  • Bulletin – our bi-monthly publication – with an archive available to members in the private area
  • Exhibitions – a chance to join a team taking a layout to exhibitions across the UK, and to help out at the London Festival of Railway Modelling each March
