Welcome to the Market Deeping Model Railway Club website. Please feel free to browse around. We hope you will like what you see and do get in touch if you would like to join us.
It is with great regret that we have to advise that Peter Wilde our friend and long term treasurer and show manager passed away recently. His funeral will take place on Monday 27th February at 1.30pm at Priory Church, Deeping St James.
Meeting nights are normally Mondays except after Bank Holidays when we meet on Tuesdays.
The Club has been meeting for 40 years - an anniversary we observed in 2016. As our name suggests, we started out in Market Deeping, just north of Peterborough and retained that name when we moved in 2003
We meet most Monday nights and with layouts in O, EM, OO and N, we cater for a wide range of interests in the hobby. From those who wish to run in their existing stock on our test track, to those who want to build layouts, kits, scratch build models for exhibition or just talk! If you have an interest in model railways then this is the ideal club for you - from complete beginner to expert.
Our Own Website
As well as what you can see here, there is a further members only area where you can see and read about members layouts, links to other web sites that other members have found useful, a For Sale section and information on many other aspects of the club. This is only available to club members and please talk to Brian Norris in the first instance if you are an unregistered member and wish to gain access.
Our very own magazine, sent out four times a year by email in pdf format to members only.
We currently need a new editor for this magazine and if you would be interested in tackling it, please contact Brian Norris or any committee member.

Venue and Facilities
Based between Market Deeping and Bourne, north east of Stamford and just to the north of Peterborough we have a large specially converted, dedicated clubroom with ample facilities to cater for your modelling needs - from a quiet desk to working as part of a team on a layout. A test track is also available and we can run trains in O, OO, EM and N gauge on it. Or just come for a chat and a cup of tea. Please note that there are no toilet facilities.
We have great fun taking our layouts to exhibitions and if you join us, you can join in the fun too - a weekend away playing trains - what more could you ask for! If you are organising an exhibition, please contact me to discuss how we can help.
We also have our own show in Stamford, to the north of Peterborough in May each year. 2017's show will be on the 6th May which is not the normal bank holiday weekend that we have had in the past. We are also closely involved with BRM's annual Peterborough National Festival of Railway Modelling in October.
If you are at all interested in model railways, please do get in touch - see our contacts page. Unfortunately, due to space constraints at the club we have had to temporarily stop taking on new members but you are still most welcome to come and see us and we'll even give you a free cup of tea!
Annual adult membership is £40 and concessions are available.
We look forward to meeting you.
