The Club exists to operate a 'OO' gauge model railway based on prototypical British Railways practice 1948 to 1964. Meetings are monthly on a Sunday, in all weathers - see the 'Meeting Dates' page for our Operating Dates. At the meetings we operate the Railway according to a timetable based on real time.
There are 11 stations and trains are signalled between stations using bell codes based on BR practice.
