Eileen's Emporium celebrated 30 years in business during the York model railway show, Easter 2016. Eileen's was founded by Eileen Pitchforth to supply materials for modellers. When she, and her husband Jim, retired about 10 years later the business was take over by Roger Sawyer. After 12 years the retirement bug hit again and in August 2009 Derek Russan became Eileen the Third!.

Derek has been a modeller all his life, a member of the Scalefour society for over 30 years and, before taking over Eileen's was also active in local model railway clubs.

The European Railways Association - a society open to everyone interested in the railways of Europe.

Founded in Autumn 2013, this new association is for everyone interested in European railways, whether in full size or model. The ERA is solely web based although you may encounter our promotional stands at UK railway and model railway events. We welcome all prototype enthusiasts and modellers across the Continent irrespective of country, scale, gauge and make. Although occasional technical terms will appear in their native languages, our website is fully English language based.

We are THE organisation catering for both new and veteran railway modellers working in 4mm scale using a track gauge of 16.5mm - the most common for models of UK prototypes.

Our objectives are-

To welcome ALL modellers with an interest in OO.

How the Society functions

The Talyllyn Railway Preservation Society has real and effective control over the Talyllyn Railway. The Society's Council of twenty, half subject to re-election at each year's Annual General Meeting, nominates three directors to the Board of the Talyllyn Railway Company. The other two directors are appointed by a descendant of Sir Haydn Jones, the former owner of the line.

The 2mm Scale Association exists to promote and facilitate modelling at the scale of 2mm:1ft. The scale has a long history as the smallest practical finescale standard.

By joining the Association, members gain access to a wealth of knowledge and our exclusive component range designed to enable simple and accurate construction.

The Scalefour Society caters for the needs of railway modellers working to the scale of 4mm/ft (1:76.2), the most popular of the British model railway scales. It promotes and encourages the use of effective modelling techniques and fine scale standards among all 4mm railway modellers with a particular emphasis on the use of scale wheels and track.

This web site contains a great deal of information for all modellers and is a showcase for the Society. It also contains our Forum, where you can read about many aspects of finescale modelling.

009 Society - the world's largest small scale narrow gauge modelling group aimed at those modelling narrow gauge railways of scales around the 3.5 - 4mm to the foot.

We aim to cater for all aspects of small scale narrow gauge railway modelling, both for the beginner and the experienced modeller alike, for the scratch-builder. the kit builder and the modeller who prefers proprietary ready to run equipment. Whether you are an active modeller or an armchair modeller, you will find a welcome in the 009 SOCIETY.

 Based in south Warwickshire, we boast a private quarter acre water with unlimited daytime access, a clubhouse and free parking.

A  club which prides itself on having a friendly and very helpful membership. We sail electric, steam and yachts, sorry no IC. The clubhouse has tea/coffee making facilities with integral toilet.Disabled parking and wheel chair access also catered for. An informal gathering for general sailing in a relaxed atmosphere on Thursday.

MERG (Model Electronic Railway Group) is an international, UK based group promoting interest in the application of electronics & computers to all aspects of railway modelling.

Founded in 1967, the Group’s aim is to actively promote and advance the use of electronic and computer technology for model railway operation, which is ideally suited to take advantage of these technologies, and the application of electronics and computers can be used to good effect to add enhanced features and realism to model railway operation. 

MERG celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017 – we have come a long way from the early days in 1967 when a small bunch of electronics enthusiasts got together to swap notes and ideas about model railway control and add-on widgets to enliven layouts.

What Is The HMRS?

The Historical Model Railway Society is a UK Registered Educational Charity "founded in 1950 by historians and modellers to collect and exchange records, drawings and photographs in the interests of historical accuracy in modelling". (Andrew Dow in The Oxford Companion to British Railway History, Simmons & Biddle (editors), OUP 1997)

The Society maintains a strong commitment toward obtaining, storing and distributing information of value and integrity. Material placed in its care will be treated with due regard to its information value.

The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway is a volunteer operated heritage railway in Gloucestershire offering a round trip of over 24 miles. It uses part of the route of the former Great Western Railway's main line from Birmingham to Cheltenham which used to run via Stratford-upon-Avon.

 It now operates steam and heritage diesel trains between Cheltenham Racecourse and Laverton through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Cotswolds. The line commands wonderful views of the nearby sleepy hamlets and villages, with outstanding outlooks across to the Malvern Hills and beyond. The railway is in the process of being extended to Broadway in Worcestershire.

Diesel and Electric Modellers United

About DEMU

Diesel and Electric Modellers United (demu) was formed in 1994 as an independent society catering for all modellers of the railways of mainland Britain in the Diesel and Electric era regardless of scale/gauge affiliations or modelling ability. We aim to promote all aspects of this period by exchanging information and ideas in our quarterly magazine 'UPDate' and our members-only web forum, which feature modelling and prototype articles on a wide range of subjects.

What Is EM?

If you’re interested in improving the look of your models or if you’re contemplating construction for the first time,  The E.M. Gauge Society is here to help you.

If you already model to EM or P4 standards, membership of the Society delivers significant benefits to railway modellers.

Why 4mm scale?

Subcategories

This year's layouts feature our society's own O gauge layout, Kimble. To support this theme we have a significant presence of other O gauge layouts, including the 55' foot long Newchapel Junction. Both of these will be located int he Sports Hall, at the rear of the building.

In total we have 25 layouts booked, covering the entire spectrum of model railways, from G scale on the second floor balcony, down to N scale; the layouts representing locations from Australia, the USA, Canada, Spain, and of course the UK, and from the 1920s to the present day.
