Welcome to the Preston and District Model Railway Society
Our annual exhibition was on the 5-6th March, and was a great success. A lot of great layouts, and a good number of visitors on both days. Congratulations to Thomas from Southport who won the children’s competition; the answer was “Tornado”.
We also have an open day planned for Monday 21st March, from 8 pm to 10 pm at the club rooms. If you are interested in joining, this is a great first step!
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.
