Welcome to the

Risborough and District Model Railway Club

Club details

We meet on Friday evenings at 7pm till 10pm at the St Mary's Church Hall in Princes Risborough. This is located opposite St Mary's Church and near the main car park in Stratton Road. Click here for a map.

The club calendar is here: Google Calendar (opens in a new tab).

The club celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2021, but sadly could not celebrate it in style. We hope to be able to do this when the risks reduce to an acceptable level. A brief history of the first fifty years of the Club can be found in the attached document: r_dmrc_-_the_first_fifty_years.pdf
