Members’ stories is a landing page that will link you to our members’ individual webpages on the site. Here you can read about the experiences of members while they share their stories about their love of trains and modelling. Our members create or buy their models in different gauges or model types depending on their interests.

These models are scaled down versions of their favourite vehicles or stationary engines. Though you may not always see these different models at the Club, except on special exhibition days, these models can be as diverse as traction engines, steam powered boats, clocks or cars, stationary engines and, of course, trains. As you open these members’ ‘workshops’ you will find them full of interesting tales, pictures, and videos of their models.
