Table of Contents
Railway modelling clubs bring together people interested in the hobby so that everyone can benefit from sharing their skills, knowledge and experience with others. It enables us to build layouts much more ambitious and complex than can usually be achieved by working 'home alone'. Redditch Model Railway Club is the longest Ė established Club in the Worcestershire area. Our Clubroom offers the facilities to build the largest of layouts and our members have the know-how to build them to the highest standards. This is the answer to the question.
We meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:15pm until 10.00pm, throughout the year.
On one of the townís Industrial Estates that is accessible from anywhere in the town and the surrounding area.
