Stamford Model Rail Show 2020
Many visitors will know of the disaster that befell us in May 2019 when our show was vandalised overnight and more details are on our Stamford Update page. Our show for this year was intended to be bigger and better in all ways but sadly, due to the Corona virus, it was not to be.
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. In line with current government advice, meetings are suspended for the time being. Instead, we may start a Cyber Monday meeting on Skype. Peter, our chairman will be emailing members soon.
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 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 specially converted, dedicated clubroom with 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 where we can run trains in O, OO, EM and N gauge.
Or just come for a chat and a cup of tea in Don's Café. 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.
