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 model railway 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.
As a club we would like to grow a little- we currently have 14 members.
If you live locally & are interested in the hobby of model railways, we believe you could gain much by being a part of our club.
Please contact us for more info. We can arrange for you to come along to a couple of our regular meetings at no charge. Have a chat with us when we are exhibiting at local or regional model railway exhibitions.
We look forward to hearing from you.
