Welcome to the site of the Thelwall and Grappenhall Model Railway Club.

We are a small group of model railway enthusiasts. The club was founded January 31st 2008 by a few like minded enthusiasts; the club is based at the Grappenhall Community Centre on Bellhouse Lane, Grappenhall, Warrington, WA4 2SG.

The room covers an area 45ft x 12ft and holds the clubs 4 fixed layouts.

The first two static layouts are in 00 gauge - one analogue and one digital. These are both connected to each other, using an interchange. Our third static layout is an "N" gauge, this circuit as been designed on a continuous circuit with an end to end suburban line. We also have an automated tramway currently under construction, with plans for a 009 layout to be added in the near future.

The work has progressed and all 3 layouts are powered and runnable, as always work is still to be carried out on scenery and landscaping. The skeleton has been built; now we just need to put some meat on it.

We try to carry out any working parties on Saturday afternoons when possible. Thankfully it’s not all work and no play; this is also the time to put the world to rights over a cup of tea.

So if you have the skills or would like to learn a few, or just an evening out with like minded people then please contact one of our members listed below by phone or email.
