Meeting nights are normally Mondays at 7:30 p.m. except after Bank Holidays when we meet on Tuesdays at the same time.

 

History

history

The Club was founded in 1976, the same year as Concorde first flew. We started out in Market Deeping, just north of Peterborough and retained that name when we moved in 2003 to  Obthorpe a small village near Bourne and then in 2022 when we moved to new premises in Essendine..

 

Activities

activities

We meet most Monday nights and with layouts in O, EM, OO and N, we cater for a wide range of interests in the hobby. From those who wish to run in their existing stock on our test track, to those who want to build layouts, kits, scratch build models for exhibition or just talk! If you have an interest in model railways then this is the ideal club for you - from complete beginner to expert. We have a number of layouts under construction. However, our main focus at present is on relaing the test track, re-ordering and fitting out our new club room and of course, preparartions for our annual show in May - see below..

Annual Show

 We also organise at least one show every year, our main one is normally held in Stamford at Stamford Welland Academy to whom we are most grateful.  

Dates for our 2023 exhibiion are 13th and 14th May 2023 

Sadly, our show in 2019 was vandalised and in 2020 and 2021, cancelled due to the Covid 19 outbreak. Instead, we produced a Virtual Show in 2020 which can be viewed here or click the link.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWJDrvDhN_c

Exhibitions

We have great fun taking our layouts to exhibitions and if you join us, you can join in the fun too - a weekend away playing trains - what more could you ask for!
If you are organising an exhibition and wish to book a layout, please contact our This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to discuss how we can help.

We also have our own show in Stamford, to the north of Peterborough in May each year and we are also closely involved with BRM's annual Peterborough National Festival of Railway Modelling.

Venue and Facilities

cup of teaAfter 17 years in our 'home', in Obthorpe, our long term friend and landlord needed our premises back for use in his expanding farm. After much searching and with much good will from both our old landlord  who has been very patient with us and our new landlord, we have a new venue in Essendine. Entrance is via an external staircase and at present there is no disabled access. However, we hope to install a lift in the not too distant future and if you would like to support us in this please check out our Donate page as the costs are significant.
