Work in progress at a Club meeting


The Club meets on Thursday evenings from 8 pm to 10 pm in St Paul's Centre on the corner of Church Street and Old Park Avenue, Enfield, Middlesex, EN2 6PR. Visitors are welcome at any of our meetings.

Please enter by the rear door from the car park and then take the third door on the right into the Committee Room where we meet. Please click on "HOW TO FIND US" for details of where the Club meetings and annual exhibitions are held.

Our activities include building layouts, exhibiting layouts, and occasional slide and film shows. The Club members have a very wide range of modelling skills, which they are always willing to share. There's also plenty of time just to chat over a cuppa.

Our members model in a variety of scales and gauges, ranging from N gauge through 00 and 0 gauge to gauge 1 and G scale, including narrow gauges. Members have links with other organisations such as the EM Gauge Society, Gauge 0 Guild and the Gauge 3 Society.

The Club and its members have several layouts available for exhibiting at other Clubs' shows. Please click on "EXHIBITION LAYOUTS" for more details.

HISTORY OF THE CLUB
The Club was originally founded in September 1977 as the Model Rail Section of the British Rail Staff Association Sports Club, meeting in the Sports Pavilion in Holtwhites Hill, near Gordon Hill railway station. Membership rapidly grew to about 40 members.

In 1994 the Club's name was changed to 'Holtwhites Model Railway Club' to correspond with the change of name of the parent Sports Club.

In February 1998, following the privatisation of British Rail and uncertainty about the future of the Holtwhites Hill premises, the club moved to St Paul's Centre for its weekly meetings. This resulted in a change of name to 'Enfield Town Model Railway Club.
