About Us

Blandford St Mary

High Wycombe Model Railway Club encourages a wide variety of modelling


We model in four main scales:
O Scale – at 6.4mm or 7mm to the foot, 32mm Gauge
OO Scale – at 4mm to the foot, 16.5mm Gauge
HO Scale – 3.5mm to the foot, 16.5mm Gauge
N Scale – 2mm to the foot, 9mm Gauge

Also Narrow Gauges
009 Gauge – 9mm gauge – 4mm to the foot scale
0-16.5 (NG7) (UK) & 0n30 (US) – 16.5mm gauge – 7mm to the foot scale

We enjoy the choice – so can you!


Many of our members model UK railways, including the “Big Four” companies and British Rail. Models are based on real or imagined places around the country so they look and feel very different.

We also have a modellers of North American prototypes, admiring places as far apart as Maine, Montana and Alaska – not forgetting Canada.


Most of our models show places and landscapes which reflect the past, partly because of the fun of modelling steam locomotives. But there are no rules about this; informal groups emerge at the club to make models of particular times and places, often showing how railways served the needs of the time.

Our club is a place where a common interest is expressed in a variety of creative and skilful ways. It’s a place you would enjoy visiting.


Railway modelling is a great activity for all all ages, it is not as some think a hobby with an aging demographic.  Our society has members aged 12 to 85. We have a thriving junior modellers section for those aged 12 to 18 that we positively encourage and support. Help, advice and opportunity to learn new skills is available for all.

Drop in and see us sometime, details about becoming a member can be found here.
