The group has now been formed. We propose to cover all aspects of railways from model railways to full size.

Our inaugural meeting was a visit to the ”Making Tracks” Railway Exhibition at Chester Cathedral. The exhibition includes a large model railway layout based on the “West Coast Main Line” built by Pete Waterman the well-known Song Writer, Record Producer and Railway enthusiast.

Please click here to see a short report and photos from the visit.

The group meets at 10.30 am on third Wednesday of the month for Dec 2021 and Jan 2022 then 10.30 am on second Wednesday of the month from Feb 2022 at Knutsford Methodist Church Centre.

Future meeting topics could include:

  • Watching the classic 1936 GPO film “Night Mail” and the 1986 50th anniversary film made by the BBC.
  • Train trips in Europe we have done – or would like to do before it is too late!!
  • My favourite UK loco class – steam and later.
  • Discussing our model railways and things we would like to have.
  • Antique model trains – Anyone still got their childhood model trains?
