Bury St. Edmunds Model Railway Club



Welcome to the Bury St Edmund's Model Railway Club

All model railway enthusiasts, of all levels and interests are most welcome.

Club Nights are held weekly on Thursdays between 7.30pm and 10.30pm and Tuesdays (by arrangement).

We are proud that our club celebrated its 70th Anniversary in 2019.

The Club was inaugurated in March 1949 as a model engineering society and has gone from strength to strength, currently boasting a membership of some 40 souls.

By way of celebrations, we had a fantastic day at the North Norfolk Railway and held our biggest (thus far) annual model railway exhibition
