Stamford Model Rail Show 2020
Many of you will know of the disaster that befell us on Saturday 18th of May 2019 when our show was vandalised overnight and more details are on our Stamford Update page.
An incredible number of hours have already been spent developing plans for the 2020 show which we are determined will be bigger and better than ever before. Already, the show has been extended to two days duration and the show will occupy almost the whole of the Academy building, giving us more room for layouts and also of course, traders, for those ever important supplies.
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.
Annual adult membership is £40 and concessions are available for younger members.
We look forward to meeting you.
