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!
Look under archive- latest month, for full details of club activities
Thanks to all the visitors who came to see this years “Model Trains in Petersfield”event. We had a great time and hope you did too.
Numbers of visitors were down from 2014- probably due to the great weather and a couple of top sporting events on the TV in the afternoon, but we did cover our costs.
We will probably have another one in 2016. Look out for announcements.
Our next club event is Model Trains in the Valley on Sunday 25th October 2015 at Milland Valley Memorial Hall
Keep visiting this site for information as it becomes available
The site is not owned or managed by the Liphook & District Model Railway Club, but by a long standing member, Tony Bettger
