Stamford Model Rail Show 2020

Corona Virus corona

It is with great regret that we have to advise that our exhibition on the 4th & 5th of April at T C Harrison, Stamford and our main show on the 16th & 17th of May are cancelled. Refunds for tickets purchased have been processed please contact us in case of query. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Many visitors will know of the disaster that befell us in May 2019 when our show was vandalised overnight and more details are on our Stamford Update page. Our show for this year was intended to be bigger and better in all ways but sadly, due to the Corona virus, it was not to be.

Welcome

Welcome to the Market Deeping Model Railway Club website. 

Meetings

Meeting nights are normally Mondays at 7:30 p.m. except after Bank Holidays when we meet on Tuesdays at the same time. In line with current government advice, meetings are suspended for the time being. Instead, we may start a Cyber Monday meeting on Skype. Peter, our chairman will be emailing members soon.

 

History

history

The Club was founded in 1976, the same year as Concorde first flew. We started out in Market Deeping, just north of Peterborough and retained that name when we moved in 2003 to  a venue near Thurlby.

Activities

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. We have a number of layouts under construction.

Dedicated Website
