Welcome to The Leamington & Warwick Model Railway Society
The Society has over 100 members mainly from South Warwickshire and the surrounding areas. We occupy spacious club rooms just outside Leamington Spa with over 3,500 sq ft for layouts, a discussion area, library and kitchen. We have a number of club layouts in various stages of construction - in O, P4, OO and N gauge - and the club layouts regularly appear on the exhibition circuit and in the modelling press.
We meet regularly every Thursday evening so come down to the club rooms and have a look around. You will be sure of a good welcome and there is plenty of interest for all modelling skills, or for those who just like to chat, or browse in the extensive club library.
During 2022 and the early part of 2023 members have constructed an outdoor railway. Currently there are three complete loops of 45mm gauge track suitable for battery powered and live steam models. We are currently conducting running trials and the first public viewing of the track in operationg was at the club open day in June 2023.
We moved into a spacious new club rooms just outside Leamington Spa in April 2006 which provides over 3,500 sq ft for layouts, discussion area, library and kitchen.
The society has a kitchen in the clubhouse, with tea and coffee making facilities, as well as the facilities to heat up food. Members are welcome to use it whenever they are using the clubhouse.
The kitchen also operates as a tea and coffee bar on regular club nights, supplying complimentary hot drinks and biscuits.
The clubhouse contains a library of railway related materials: books, magazines and periodicals, photographs and videos.
The clubhouse contains a small workshop which is available to members.
The Society has over 80 members mainly from South Warwickshire and the surrounding areas. Most of the members belong to one of layout groups but many just like to meet other members and chat in the library area with its extensive range of railway books and magazines. Several of the members also have their own layouts which have exhibited at our own or other shows.
We have seven club layouts in various stages of construction in all the major gauges: N (Kineton, Toysleigh and Midway), OO (Duxbury and "Project 2"), P4 (Clarendon) and O (Kimble) and these regularly appear on the exhibition circuit and in the modelling press. All the layouts would welcome new joiners.
Visitors are welcome to come along to our club night on any Thursday evening from 7:30pm. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome with plenty of interest for all levels of modelling skill or just the opportunity to chat with members or browse the extensive club library.
