Alton Model Railway Group will be holding an Open Day for prospective new members on Saturday 30 April 2022 in the ‘Wesley Room’ at Alton Maltings (GU34 1DT) between 10am and 3pm.

Group O Gauge DC layout ‘Southolt’

Group layouts in ‘OO’, O and American HO will be on display/operating. The Group test track (N, OO, O, DC and DCC) will also be available so if you have a locomotive/train that does not run well bring it with you and a member will be pleased to look at it for you.

Alternatively if you are unable to attend on the day the Group meets every Thursday at the Alton Maltings from 6pm to 10pm.

Membership of the group is open to anyone over the age of 18, of any railway modelling interest.

Prospective new members are welcome to come along to our meetings for a few weeks to see if they get on with us and we get on with them.
