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 two completed layouts (Dorking Town and Birch Coombe). We have two further layouts under construction. The Vine Line, a DCC controlled layout is well underway. We are also undertaking a total replacement of our layout Earlingham which has proved popular at exhibitions but was in need of  significant remedial work to maintain its reliablity.  If you fancy getting involved, then any of these projects 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 Bluebell Railway Model Railway Weekend on 29th and 30th June 2019 and  East Grinstead Model Railway Club's Annual Exhibition on 16th and 17th March 2019.
