Welcome

Welcome to the Market Deeping Model Railway Club website. Please feel free to browse around. 

Meetings

Meeting nights are normally Mondays except after Bank Holidays when we meet on Tuesdays. See also the Latest News page for variations.

History

The Club has been meeting for 40 years - an anniversary we observed in 2016. As our name suggests, we started out in Market Deeping, just north of Peterborough and retained that name when we moved in 2003

Activities

Club NightsWe 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 - please see the links on the left. Shown below is Jessica May opening our latest layout - Knowl End

Our Own Website

As well as what you can see here, there is a further "members only" area where you can see and read about members layouts, find links to other web sites that other members have found useful in the WebLinks section, a For Sale section and information on many other aspects of the club. This is only available to club members and please talk to our web master in the first instance if you are an unregistered member and wish to gain access.

For non-members a couple of 'taster' articles are shown in the Members menu to the right.

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.

Dons CafeOr just come for a chat and a cup of tea. Please note that there are no toilet facilities.

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, please contact me to discuss how we can help.

exhibitionsWe also have our own show in Stamford, to the north of Peterborough in May each year. 2017's show will be on the 6th May which is not the normal bank holiday weekend that we have had in the past. We are also closely involved with BRM's annual Peterborough National Festival of Railway Modelling in October.

Join Us

If you are at all interested in model railways, please do get in touch - see our contacts page. Unfortunately, due to space constraints at the club we have had to temporarily stop taking on new members but you are still 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.

Colin Brown, chairman

We look forward to meeting you.
