Chelmsford and District Model Railway Club

Taking creativity into the community

Details of Chelmsford and District Model Railway Club


The Chelmsford & District Model Railway Club has been in existence for over 30 years, and has met in some interesting places - from a carpet shop to a Members garage. We moved in to our present premises in January 2014 and these have been described by others to be one of the best clubs they have visited.

The Club presently has layouts in '0' '00' '009'  '0n30' and 'N', either working or under construction. Members are also interested in 'EM', '0-16.5', 'H0' and G-Scale - some are also closely interested in the 12 inch to the foot scale items.

We welcome requests to exhibit our Club layouts at Model Railway Exhibitions and other events, Our layouts have and are asked to be exhibited in the UK and have even been known to travel to mainland Europe.

Club Members also exhibit their own private layouts.

The club holds an annual exhibition in October. We also arrange and run smaller exhibitions throughout the year in the Chelmsford area to raise funds for local groups to help them with their projects.

The Club is most fortunate with its present home, near the centre of Chelmsford City, Essex. The Club meets on Monday and Wednesday evenings with Members arriving from around 7:00pm.

Our club has over 100 enthusiastic members and we welcome visitors to our Club Rooms many of whom take up full membership when they see the facilities we offer.
