About the Club
Sudbury Model Railway Club was formed in 1980 after an advert was placed in the Railway
Modeller asking for interested modellers to contact Malcolm Hines. This led to the club attending
local functions with layouts built by individual members.
Work started on the first club layout (Melford) in 1981, which then appeared at the club's first model
railway exhibition in October of the same year. Being a small club, we have never had a large membership,
but those that attend are enthusiastic.
36 years after our first exhibition, we are as busy and active as ever, with a number of new avenues being
explored. Over the past 36 years, we have been lucky in holding successful exhibitions. We are also members of
the Chiltern Model Railway Association, an organisation consisting of over 100 model railway clubs.
We meet on Friday evenings from 7:30pm to 10:30pm and new members are always welcome. Modelling skills are
not necessary, the only qualification needed is enthusiasm! For more information, please contact our chairman,
Brian Hemmings. Contact details for the club can be found here.
