The Stevenage and District Model Railway Club is an established & thriving model railway club. Our membership covers a diverse range of interests, in various scales, both UK & foreign, from the steam era to today’s modern image.

We are always pleased to welcome new members including junior members (over 10 years of age) who must be accompanied by an adult at all times.


We meet on Monday evenings from 19:30 until 22:00 (except Bank Holidays, when it’s a Tuesday), Wednesdays from 10:00 until 13:00 and Wednesday Evenings (commencing 15th February) from 19:30 until 22:00, as well as Thursday mornings from 1000 - 1300. Thursday Mornings are primarily to give members the opportunity to run DCC on two of the four running lines on the 'O' gauge. DC running will still be available on the two remaining 'O' gauge lines as well as the 'OO' and 'N' gauge layouts.

Membership information and application forms are available below or alternatively they are available during our opening hours at our premises.

For more information, please come along to one of our weekly meetings where you can have a chat, & see what we do over a tea/coffee & a biscuit!

Members also receive a regular club newsletter.

Additional club social events include slide shows/quiz/second-hand sales, visits to model railway exhibitions, preserved railways & other places of interest.

Meetings are held in our own premises, the old Baptist chapel in the village of Datchworth Hertfordshire, some 15 minutes by car south of Stevenage town centre. Free car parking is available in the adjacent village hall car park.

We have 3 layouts - a permanent 'O' gauge, & portable 'OO' gauge and 'N' gauge layouts which are also exhibited at model railway exhibitions.
