About Us

We are a small, friendly group interested in all things to do with railways and railway modeling and particularly BR Southern Region. We get together on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:30 pm until 10:00 pm, and also at other times, to build our layout, play trains and/or chat. Whether you are a railway modeler, or thinking of joining in our wonderful hobby, or just curious, do come along one evening. You’ll be very welcome! We have our own dedicated clubroom at the rear of Dorking Halls, High Street, Dorking (click for more details of our location — it can be confusing), so we don’t have to dismantle items between meetings. In addition to our Monday and Wednesday evening sessions, members come along on their own, or with other members, at any time to relax building their own models or doing some work on the club layout (or their own layout if it’s here). With the room comfortably warm, maybe music quietly in the background and rain on the roof, nothing could be better!

We have three completed layouts (Ranmore Junction, Dorking Town and Earlingham). Work on our latest project, Birch Coombe, a 00 finescale layout, is well underway but plenty remains to do. If you fancy getting involved, then either contact us for more details or come along on one of our Club nights. You will be very welcome!

We also exhibit our layouts at other exhibitions, the most recent being at the Horsham Model Railway Club's Annual Exhibition in 2017 and at the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway's Open Day in July 2016.

We are also building strong ties with Horsham Model Railway Club through reciprocal visits and exchanging modelling ideas and tips and are keen to foster similar relationships with other Clubs in the area.
