An Introduction to the Society

Founded in 1981, Letchworth Model Railway Society is one of the leading model railway clubs in Eastern England. We are based at Standalone Farm in Letchworth, and meet on Monday and Wednesday evenings between 7:30pm and 10:00pm .

The latest project, a OO scale layout based upon the GWR mainline near Oxford, made its debut


appearance at the Society’s 2011 exhibition. An O scale industrial layout has been to exhibition and has further invitations next year. Visitors to Standalone Farm (an educational farm open to the public March to October) can run the outdoor G scale railway that the members built and maintain.

Our annual exhibition takes place in November; see the exhibition page for more details. Layouts are sourced from around the country and has excellent trade support. This has proven to be a popular venue and worth a visit whatever your interest.

Members have a wide range of expertise that many join to gain from. The Society adapts to the needs of the membership and this results in the involvement of many members, as teachers, advisors or learners. The activities are always evolving and often include social activities within or outside the club house. New members are always welcome and if you would like to visit please contact the Society via the contact us page.
