We encourage participation in exhibitions and hold an annual Open Day.

Not all types of layout are built in the Club, but there is usually help on hand for home layout problems.
We are located on the Twickenham - Hounslow borders in West London with access from major roads and rail stations.
With six layout projects in popular scales and themes, our members would be delighted to welcome you to the Club on a Friday evening. To discover more, please take a trip around this website. Enquiries are welcomed and we promise a quick response.
Welcome to Twickenham & District Model Railway Club
We have projects at various stages of build or completion and which provide scope for involvement in all facets of the hobby. You can see more of these on our layouts pages.
The clubroom includes a small workshop area surrounded by a well stocked book and DVD lending library.
A circular multi-gauge running track with DC and some DCC capabilities has facilities ranging from from ‘Z’ to ‘G’ gauge, including some for three rail use, ideal for test operation of locos and stock.
At exhibitions our layouts aim to operate appropriate trains based on the layout theme, but in the clubroom all models are welcome.
The clubroom belongs to a local Scout group; it has an almost level access but two shallow steps lead to the front doors. Layouts are housed on wheeled trolleys providing easy access with minimal lifting.
Finally, no self respecting club is complete without a kitchen for tea, coffee and snacks, ours is no exception!
Brief Club History:
Twickenham & District Model Railway Club was formed in 1961 and established a home in Richmond-upon-Thames.
Over the years the Club has been fortunate to have many fine modellers within it’s membership and has helped many more improve their skills.
A move to our current location in 2004 has provided the opportunity for a number of imaginative new projects.
