Open Day - Sunday 23rd April 2017

Our next open Sunday is on 23rd April 2017.

We'll have a special focus on modelling in O gauge and 7mm:1ft scale, and featuring one of the last public operating sessions of our well know layout "Happisburgh Goods" before it retires later this year.

Other MRC layouts include:

"Lacey Dale"  - our N gauge mainline layout with branch line. normally running late BR steam from the Peak District

"Empire Mills" - An EM gauge goods line set in the west country.

And the Gauge O Guild will be there, showing the range of opportunity to model in this scale.

Plus a special offer for new members applying on the day

You can browse our library - one of the most comprehensive resources for modellers in the UK 

Our multi-gauge TEST TRACKS will be available, to run N, 12mm, OO, HO, EM, P4 S and O gauges with DC or DCC control so please bring your own stock to run.

We will have a good selection of pre-owned models available from our shop, and of course refreshments (including a selection of freshly made rolls and Greene King beers) are available.

Open from 11am to 4pm, and entry is free.     

Follow us on Twitter for updates - and check back for more details.

Parking is free on the local side streets, but we are very well position for public transport, including a cycle hire station opposite us, minutes from Kings Cross and St Pancras stations and many bus routes pass close by.
