Welcome to the Preston and District Model Railway Society
A message from the Chairman to existing and perspective members
As you can see the stair lift is now installed.The stairlift is for the benefit of those members and visitors who have difficulty in climbing stairs – if you don’t need it please don’t use it! (It may also be used to transport layout baseboards when they are on exhibition duty). Operating instructions will be posted at either end of the track.
OUR CLUB ROOMS are in Unit 12, Aqueduct Mill, Aqueduct Street, Preston. PR1 7JN.
This is a comfortable 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:
Our large new 00 layout, “Euxton Junction” which gives more scope for both D.C and D.C.C. operations is set up and running in the club rooms, was debuted at our 2016 exhibition and has appeared as layout of the month in the October 2018 edition of magazine.
We normally hold an Exhibition on the first weekend of March each Year. Owing to Covid restrictions our next exhibition has had to be postponed until 5th/6th March 2022
