Following UK Government advice the committee has decided that for the moment all club sessions are suspended.
We are a small group who meet in our own club room in Chorleywood and always welcome new members. Most of our members model UK railways from various parts of the country.
We are always looking to recruit new members, so if you live in Amersham, Little Chalfont, Chorleywood or areas nearby and want to get involved with model railways, contact us by email - email@example.com and come along to a running session.
The club has layouts in gauges "O", "OO" and "OO9". The test track has "OO", "EM", "3mmFS", N/009 and "HOm".
The '0' gauge layout has been undergoing some relaying and rewiring. It is now ready for regular running sessions.
The '00' gauge layout has also been undergoing major works, particularly to the station area. All the trackwork is now laid and is ballasted. There remains plenty to do still, especially on the scenic side!
There is a second '00' layout primarily designed for exhibiting, Quarry Halt. It has had several successful outings.
John brought the 009 layout out of storage and it has been run successfully for sessions in the club hut.
Some members have a layout at home, and our chairman has a magnificent "OO" layout in the garden.
Most of us buy ready-to-run models and enhance them to varying degrees, others prefer to build from kits. The ready availability of R-T-R in 4mm and 7mm means most of us use them at running sessions. We have a stock of 'O' gauge kits purchased some years ago and members are gradually working their way through the boxes.
If you are already a railway modeller, want to pick it up again or are just starting out, then come along and see what we do. Contact us using our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org

With suspended club meetings no work is taking place on our layouts, but there are some home based projects members could undertake. There is a list of items needed and all members are encouraged to take on a project. Some items are available as kits, others will rely on your ingenuity. The current list is here.
