Stamford Model Rail Show
Many of you will know of the disaster that befell us on Saturday 18th of May when our show was vandalised overnight and more details are on our Thank You page. Our fund raising page is now closed having raised an amazing £107,947 and we are exceedingly grateful for all the funds raised, offers of goods and services and messages of support.
Welcome to the Market Deeping Model Railway Club website.
Meeting nights are normally Mondays at 7:30 p.m. except after Bank Holidays when we meet on Tuesdays at the same time.
The Club was founded in 1976. We started out in Market Deeping, just north of Peterborough and retained that name when we moved in 2003 to a venue near Thurlby.
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.
We have our own dedicated website - this is it - where we publish items of interest to both members and model rail enthusiasts. If you want to add a link to our Web Links section, publicise an event, add a club news item or suggest improvements, please contact our web master.
Our very own library area within the test track. What better way to read while watching the trains go by. Donations to the growing library are always welcome.
Venue and Facilities
Based between Market Deeping and Bourne, north east of Stamford and just to the north of Peterborough we have a large, specially converted, dedicated clubroom with ample facilities to cater for your modelling needs - from a quiet desk to working as part of a team on a layout. A test track is also available and we can run trains in O, OO, EM and N gauge on it.
Or just come for a chat and a cup of tea. Please note that there are no toilet facilities.
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!
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.
If you are at all interested in model railways, please do get in touch. You are most welcome to come and see us and we'll even give you a free cup of tea!
Annual adult membership is £40 and concessions are available for younger members.
We look forward to meeting you.
