Welcome!

We are a small, friendly group interested in all things to do with railways and railway modelling. We get together on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:30 pm until 10:00 pm, and also at other times, to build our layout, play trains and/or chat. Whether you are a railway modeller, or thinking of joining in our wonderful hobby, or just curious, do come along one evening. You’ll be very welcome!

We have our own dedicated clubroom at the rear of Dorking Halls, High Street, Dorking. (click for more details of our location — it can be confusing.), so we don’t have to dismantle items between meetings. In addition to our Monday and Wednesday evening sessions, members come along on their own, or with other members, at any time to relax building their own models or doing some work on the club layout (or their own layout if it’s here). With the room comfortably warm, maybe music quietly in the background and rain on the roof, nothing could be better!

Latest News

We will be holding our Annual Exhibition on 8 & 9 October 2016 at the Oddfellows Hall in Dorking. Full details on the 2016 Exhibition page. As well as Club layouts and layouts from other clubs including Horsham Model Railway Club, Wimbledon Model Railway Club and the West Sussex Area Group of the N Gauge Society, there will be trade support, there will be an extensive Club secondhand stall with locos, coaches, trucks and track for sale, modelling demonstrations as well as the all important light refreshments!

Club activities

We have two completed layouts (Ranmore Junction and Dorking Town) and will shortly have a third, Earlingham which we will be exhibiting at our October 2016 Exhibition. We have just started our latest project which is an as yet unnamed 00 finescale layout. If you fancy getting involved in the ground floor of this new venture, then either contact us for more details or come along on one of our Club nights. You will be very welcome!

We also exhibit our layouts at other exhibitions, the most recent being at the Horsham Model Railway Club's Annual Exhibition and at the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railways Open Day in July 2016.

We are also building strong ties with Horsham Model Railway Club through reciprocal visits and exchanging modelling ideas and tips and are keen to foster similar relationships with other Clubs in the area.
