New Layouts now ready to view and Operate!

We now have a number of new layouts in our premises at 238 Frizington Road, Frizington, Cumbria, CA26 3SN.  These include are newly built 00 gauge layout "Bransty" which depicts Whitehaven Bransty station as it was many years ago. Also new is our 0 gauge layout Dreich, which is linked to our other 0 gauge layout, Derwent Sidings, to give a huge horseshoe shaped layout.  For those in other gauges, our Berwyn N gauge layout is being updated, and we also have a narrow gauge layout Brewery Wharf, which was donated to us and which is being restored to improve the running and control.

Come and see all these layouts at our Open Day!
Saturday 13 April 2024 between 11.00am and 3pm.

We are now open again for regular meetings at Frizington.  The meeting times are now on Monday and Thursday afternoons between about 1.30 and 3.30.  If there is sufficient interest, Thursday evening meetings will be reinstated as well.


Check our Events page for the Winter Distington Meetings . 

New members always welcome!  Please see our Membership pages for details. 

We are now also on Facebook - check us out on this Link
