Bingham Model Railway Club (near Nottingham) is a long-established club aimed at all those interested in the design, building and operation of model railways.

We welcome members at every level; beginners, improvers or professional model-makers. There is something for everyone wherever your interest lies; building locomotives or rolling stock, track and lay-out work,scenery, signalling or electrical control systems.

Our clubroom is available 24/7 and is used for layout construction, testing and plain socializing. It was officially opened on 16th July 2009 by Tony Wright, Editor of British Railway Modelling Magazine. Unfortunately our award winning layout, Copse Crossing, along with two Projects which were in construction, were all destroyed in a fire at our previous Clubrooms on 1st November 2008.

We have members interested in all gauges although the club tends to concentrate on the more familiar gauges of 00 and N. We are currently working on several new layouts with members heavily involved in the construction of the layout, scenic items, electrics, and anything else we can find people to do!

Tuesday mornings and Thursday evening are the main club meeting times and members often bring their own bits and pieces to work on. Some get involved with the new club layouts, and others come for a cup of tea and a chat. There is a good atmosphere and a great sense of togetherness within the club since the fire.

Our current club room is located at Newton, near Bingham, Notts, close to the A46 / A6097 junction.

New members are always welcome at the clubroom and if you are a complete novice to either railways or modelling, there will always be someone who can help you out. This is one of the main advantages of joining as a member.

During the course of a year, we organise several social events for our members. A summer barbeque is usually held along with a trip to a local drinking hole at Christmas time.

This year, 2015, we celebrated our 30th  Anniversary so why not come and join this long established club.
