Welcome to High Wycombe & District Model Railway Society

Formed in the late 60’s/early 70’s, HWDMRS has developed into one of the leading Model Railway clubs west of London, if not in the South East.

Due to the risks involved in Covid-19, our normal Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday sessions are suspended from midnight Wednesday 18 March 2020 until Monday 4th May 2020 or until further notice. 

We regret the Clubroom will not be open to members, except as follows:

  • For the collection or delivery of kit etc, by one individual only who is free to travel;·       
  • For maintenance work or cleaning, by one individual only, free to travel and as approved by the committee;
  • By an individual who is free to travel and who can work alone on a layout in line with our guidelines.

To avoid accidental contact the committee will start a weekly booking system via an online calendar. From Monday 23 March access will only be available by a prior booking, managed by members of the committee.

The Committee will also explore on-line chat arrangements which can be used for members to stay in touch. Layout teams may wish to do likewise. Details of these and the calendar will be circulated as soon as possible.

All other background work of the Club, particularly Wycrail, will continue as usual, using virtual meetings where necessary.

 

Our society is now fully moved into our to brand new clubrooms located in Duke Street, right in the heart of High Wycombe, next to the railway station. 

We have various layouts of British or American genre in scales O, OO/HO and N and these are set up for running and working on  at our new clubrooms. These layouts are continually being upgraded and operated by members and guests on the official club nights – Monday and Wednesday evening.

We hold an annual exhibition, WYCRAIL – more information regarding this show can be found by clicking the  BLUE  WYCRAIL Box on the top right of this page. Having just held our successful 2019 show, Wycrail 20 will be held on Saturday 7th November, put the date in your diary now!
