We meet on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

Evenings feature talks on railways and model making, project nights when members show their current work, ‘you can do it’ demonstrations and film shows.

Weather permitting, Sundays are spent operating the railways and giving rides to visitors to Victoria Park.

Members free on Wednesdays meet during the day and work on projects and grounds maintenance. There is usually also running activity on the garden railway.
