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 southwest 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.
