Welcome

This blog was originally about my personal interests in model railways but has developed into a website to cover the activities of the Liphook & District Model Railway Club 

We are a small club with a big heart.

We believe in club’s such as ours playing a full part in community life and thus encouraging a positive attitude of the club and the hobby in general.

A club’s greatest asset is its members. Ours have  knowledge, interest and skill in a wide range of scales and prototypes, covering O, OO, HO, & N; British, German, American, Japanese; standard, narrow gauge and tramways. We appreciate all branches of the hobby to the exclusion of none.

We won’t say this is the greatest model railway club website, but we don’t have adverts, are continually adding to its content and keeping it up to date on club activities. So don’t just dip into it, give it a good look over-see the contents on the right. Put it on your favourites and keep on coming back. We also have a Google+ page for the club and  separate Google+ pages for various layouts and this sites web owner has a prescence on Twitter.

If you are local, that is in  East Hampshire, South-West corner of  Surrey and North-West corner of West Sussex in an area bounded by Bordon, Petersfield, Midhurst, Petworth,  Haslemere and Grayshott you’re pretty well in our  catchment area. If you would like to come along and see what we are like, you would be made very welcome.

Liphook is lucky to have two clubs involved in practical railway based  hobbies – ours and Liphook Modellers.  Sometimes there is confusion in the public mind between what the two clubs are about. We are, as it says on the tin, a model railway club.  Liphook Modellers  are involved mainly in model engineering, who during the summer operate the miniature railway at the Hollycombe Steam Collection.

Over 50 years of enjoying a wonderful hobby!
