The home of the world’s longest running model railway show

We extend a warm welcome to all railway modellers and railway enthusiasts. The MMRS was founded in 1925 and is one of the oldest model railway clubs in the country. We are based in Sale, five miles south west of Manchester city centre, approximately half a mile from the M60. Our clubrooms are home to six layouts in most of the popular scales, one is fully complete, three are largely complete, and two are in progress including a brand new one which is in the early stages of construction.

The Christmas Model Railway Show 2018

It is only 13 days before this year’s show opens its doors on 1st December. All the latest information about it can be found here.

From the clubrooms

Prospective members are always welcome, just come down to Dean Hall any Monday evening and have a look round.

We regularly run mutual improvement classes for members, the latest ones cover an introduction to DCC, soldering, CAD Drawing with Corel draw, weathering by George Dent, and lathe training.

Our new modular layout, Barton Road, is now making rapid progress and several new club members are involved in the construction and development of this layout. More details of this and other layouts can be found on our layout page.
