This is a warm and modern industrial unit situated behind the Mill. Here the Society’s layouts are displayed and in use. There is a brew room, demonstration room and library facilities.

Our layouts in the model press:-

“Ardson” was featured in  Railway Modeller in January 2008 and “Tellem Summit” in August 2014

“Bee Lane” was in  British Railway Modelling  November 2008, and is due to appear in model_rail in September 2015,

We have a group working with Digital Command Control ( Our “Bee Lane” 00 Layout can be operated digitally )

Work is now underway on a large new 00 layout which will give more scope for both D.C and D.C.C. operations.

The Society welcomes modellers of all ages and experience. However, an appropriate adult must accompany members under the age of 16.

We currently have in excess of 35 male and female members.
