Membership is in the mid twenties and we are always happy to welcome visitors and potential new members. We have access to the clubroom 7 days a week but our main club nights are Tuesdays & Thursdays 19.30 to 22.00 approx.
Unfortunately we no longer have any members specialising in ‘0’ gauge and the permanent ‘0’ gauge layout in the clubroom has been removed to allow space for layouts under construction.
The current 'N' gauge layout is called 'Dudley Frey', after a member who sadly passed away. It is a circuit, 16 feet long and 3 feet wide, with 4 running roads. Automatic light signals are installed and work is progressing on an extension to the layout.
Our '00' gauge exhibition layout is called Tedburn St Mary which is also 16 feet long. Some might say it a bit ‘long in the tooth’ but it is still receiving invitations to exhibitions and was exhibited at the Warley Exhibition in the NEC, Birmingham in 2013. It was awarded ‘Best Visiting Layout’ at the Milton Keynes’ exhibition in 2012 and ‘Best Layout in Show’ at the Silverfox exhibition in 2016. It has also featured in the July 2015 edition of Hornby Magazine and was exhibited at the ‘Great Electric Train Show’ in 2015.
Another ‘00’ layout is Silverbury, a ‘modern image’ DCC layout which will be joining the exhibition circuit at our next exhibition on 7th May 2016.
We have purchased another ‘00’ layout that was under construction at the Bushey & District MRS when they had to disband at the end of 2007. We are modifying the interesting track layout and updating the electrics. Then we will be focusing on the scenic’s to bring it, hopefully, up to exhibition standard.
Social events have included the Annual Dinner in January, a Barbeque during the Summer and visits to places of interest.
