We've just got a new trainset in the house, and would like to learn more
Trains sets are a great start to the hobby, and we are keen to encourage people to get more adventurous and turn the train set into a model layout. We welcome vistors to our Thursday evening meetings where we have members at all levels of the hobby who are happy to talk. And we normally have one of our layouts operating (check out the calendar) where you can see how we've done it.
There are model railway exhibitions around the UK almost every weekend of the year and these are great places to learn more. One of the biggest and best is at Alexandra Palace every March, with 40 layouts plus modelling demonstrations to inspire and around 100 traders selling a huge range of products.
