Monthly Club News

June 2024: Saturday 1st June 2024 marked the 57th anniversary of the formation of the Redditch Model Railway Club. On the evening of Thursday 1st June 1967 a meeting was held at the White Hart Public House in Headless Cross in Redditch which resulted in the Redditch Model Railway Club being formed. We started the month on the 1st by taking our Smallwood layout to the Ludlow Model Railway Exhibition. As usual the layout was well received by the vistors.

May 2024: We start this month with The exhibition of our Temple Bridge layout at the Severn Valley Railway model railway event over the weekend of the 4th & 5th May 2025. Again this month we continued work on the rewiring of our Arrowmouth layout and the scenery and construction of building for our new Norgrove layout.

April 2024 : We start this month with continued work on the rewiring of our Arrowmouth layout and the continued work on scenery and construction of building for our new Norgrove layout. We ended the month by taking our Dagnell End layout to the new Key Model World Event at the NEC over the weekend of the 27th and 28th April. The layout was well received by the visitors.

March 2024 :  We started the month by staging the 51st Redditch Model Railway Exhibition over the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd March. Taking the brave decision to move the show from September to March was vindicated in terms of the increase in visitor numbers when compared with our shows in recent years. The exhibition also proved to be successful for our trade support as well. We will definitely be back on the 1st and 2nd March next year.  Back on club nights we are continuing to make building for our new Norgrove layout and are starting the rewiring of our Arrowmouth layout to make the operation of it more flexible.

February 2024 :  We started the month with the continued construction of a number of buildings for the Norgrove layout. These include a block of flats, a cinema,  a memorial hall, a supermarket  and a elevated bridge for the dual carriageway road at the one end of the layout. This month we also spent preparing for our 2024 Show on the 2nd & 3rd March with our layouts that were to be on show being tested and items being catalogued for our club sales second hand stand.

January 2024: We started the new year on the 1st January with a club running session of the Temple Bridge layout. Back at club nights we have continued making the buildings for our Norgrove layout. Towards the end of the month we started to make some alterations to the track alignment on our generic fiddle yard ready for its outing to the Model World event in April with our Dagnell End layout. The changes should improve the running of the fiddle yard and turn the layouts that are attached to it.
