So come and join us and be part of a thriving model railway club. We meet on Tuesday as well as other times. Anyone over 18 interested in joining can visit us a couple of times to see if they like it. Then Membership is £10/month.

The clubs current projects include “Westgate Park” in N gauge (2mm per foot scale). This layout is 99% complete and will be ready for this years’ show (see below). In OO gauge (4mm per foot scale), we are currently building “Wickham Market” and we hope to have this layout ready for our 2018 show.
We pride ourselves on studying relevant local railway history so that the layouts we build are as true a representation of a location in model form as possible, always bearing in mind space availability..
Our 2017 exhibition, (the 38th), takes place on Saturday 20 May at the City of Ely Community College, Downham Road, Ely. There are 18 layouts and 12 trade & demonstration stands booked to attend. The club’s ‘N’ gauge members will be bringing the new “Westgate Park” layout to the show for its very first showing. In addition our newly modified 00 Gauge “Ramsey” layout will be on show. There will also be refreshments on sale at reasonable prices. Entry prices will be £5.00 for adults and £3 for children aged 5 -18. Do come along for a really enjoyable family fun day.
