Library Additions - May 2017

Our library has one of the widest and largest ranges of books for railway modellers - covering prototype railways and modelling. The following 47 books have recently been added.

The library is open for browsing on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm (unless there is a lecture), and on our monthly open afternoons. Check out the calendar for details. Members can borrow most books to read and work from at home.

Open Day - Sunday 29th April 2018

Our next open Sunday is on 29th April 2018, with a selection of our layouts operating.

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.

 

Please note - access to most rooms is by stairs. If you have any concerns about accessibility, please contact us in advance.

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.

Thanks and Welcome

We'd like to thank everyone who visited the London of Festival of Railway Modelling last weekend, and especially all the volunteers who came with layouts and stands to make it such a great show.

Welcome to the new members who joined us at the show. If you missed out, it's not too late to take advantage of our special 50% off offer - come to our Open Day on Sunday 23rd April at Keen House and join our large and friendly group of modellers.
