FOMRS Community Model Railway have a group of youngsters that come along. Most of them from the Train Spotting side that have locos they have collected but either have nowhere or limited space to build a layout to run them. One of the favourite pastimes is recreating movements photographed at March on the layout (for example, the Intercity 125 power cars which came through back to back then returned with a rake of LNER MK3's, even Class 91's on drags behind Class 67's They get most steam excursions coming through which use the March triangle for turning round in the absence of turn tables these days.
A small and friendly model railway club for modelling enthusiasts in any gauge or scale. We are currently working (2020) on four different layouts in various scales/gauges. With members who model in Gauge 1, O, OO, HO and N. Railway interest varies between modern, steam and American outlines and experience levels are also varied. All of which makes for interesting conversations. Tea, coffee and biscuits are always available on meet nights.
New members are made very welcome. Feel free to drop in any club night to find out more about us, so come and join us.
Sleaford club made us very welcome in winter 2019 when we were looking for help with our Little Miracles project in which with help from them and BRM we built and donated a layout to Little Miracles, going from bare baseboard to finished layout in the two days of the Peterborough Show.
The aim of the club is to improve the skills & enjoyment of individual members through railway modelling in a friendly atmosphere.
Members of all levels of skill, knowledge and experience are welcome and are encouraged to become involved with the numerous layouts and projects currently under construction.
The club has an enthusiastic junior section, in which members between the ages of 10 and 16 are currently upgrading and exhibiting their own layout. Although the juniors are responsible for the actual construction processes, there is always experienced help available should they require it.
There is a strong social side to the club with a small library and seating areas within the club room for those who just want to sit and chat.
Their annual show in November at Springfields in Spalding is not to be missed with excellent layouts and many trade and society stands.
A very active local club who run an excellent annual show and who often help us with the stewarding at The Peterborough Show for which we are most grateful.
