About us

Who are we?

The club was formed in 1998 and our first section of track (a 400metre loop) was in use in November of that year. We now have over a kilometre of track with 4 bridges and a tunnel. We are situated in Melrose Park which is about 10 hectares in size and contains a 2 hectare lake.

Members come from all walks of life and only one member worked in railways. Not all members own trains or wish to drive trains but find interest in helping around the club with construction or gardening etc. The club does have two trains for members use.

We hold 2 working bees each week on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.

New members are always welcome. Visit our get involved or contact us page for more information about helping out.
