Latest Club Updates

St Neots Model Railway Club

Our club organises a multi-gauge exhibition each year in St Neots Town Centre at The Priory Centre and we always have a 7mm layout present. Our latest Club 7mm exhibition layout is nearing completion and is an authentic model of Kemsley Mill on the Bowaters Paper Railway set in the 1960s. Three members also have personal small O gauge layouts which are exhibited on a regular basis. We are just starting a 7mm Finescale layout which is set somewhere in Leicestershire and will form part of the Gauge O Guild Modular Layout at Guildex as well as being a stand alone Club exhibition layout. Members are often building locos and stock from a range of eras and locations. Some members also have RTR stock which can be seen exercising on the test track.

Liverpool and West Lancs 'O' Gauge Group

A member of Lawlogg recently received the eagerly anticipated ‘Black 5’ locomotive from Ellis Clark Trains, which was showcased on our test track. (To see the video, visit the ‘news’ page of our website at Lawlogg.uk.) The club is preparing the ‘Ballan Road’ layout with a new looped fiddle yard (to replace the end-end arrangement) and creating a diesel fuelling plant which can be swapped in place of its steam-era coaling stage counterpart, for the Modern Image ‘O’ Gauge Show at Crewe Heritage Centre on 23/24 March. (This will provide an ongoing choice of era to be represented at future shows too.) The static stand and display boards are also being prepared for the Rainhill Model Railway Show on 2/3 March.

Ebor Group of Railway Modellers of York

The York (Ebor) Club is now back to the new normal with meetings on both Tuesday and Friday evenings. Before Covid 7mm modellers were very scarce amongst the membership. Since the Covid crisis a surprising number of the club members have begun to model in O gauge taking advantage of the excellent RTR now available. Plans are well developed for how we should make a new layout with availability for both DC and DCC running - now a standard for our 4mm layouts. Note that there is no postal service to the club rooms. Email to bartlett.paul@tiscali.co.uk which will be forwarded to the Secretary.
