March & District Model Railway Club, established in 2003, is a volunteer-run organisation with the aim of promoting an environment where people living locally can meet other like-minded persons to share and foster interest in model trains, railways and allied pursuits. Particularly important is social interaction while learning new skills, and improving knowledge of the hobby with support being encouraged amongst the members of the Club.
The Club promotes or facilitates educational meetings on both model railways, and the history of railways and how they work as transport systems. The Club holds exhibitions and open days to encourage and foster an interest in model railways.
The Club organises social and educational visits for members to other organisations, preserved railways, museums and other places of interest to the members.
You can attend three sessions for free before committing to joining the club.
