Chatham & District MRC

Chatham & District Model Railway Club was first formed in the early 1950s and moved around quite a lot over the years until establishing itself in the Historic Dockyard Museum, Chatham. The clubroom is around 15 metres square and in a cellar below the famous Ropery. Club nights are Tuesdays and Fridays, from 7.30pm until 10pm or so. Currently, there are three layouts being worked in. First a large 4mm [00] scale continuous run & terminus, second an N gauge American outline exhibition layout and third an 0 gauge circular test track, which is being expanded into an oval exhibition layout.

In addition to the regular club nights when the focus is on the layouts themselves, we also have monthly presentations on a variety of modelling and prototype themes, while there is an annual modelling competition and various social events.
