About the Society

The Wakefield Railway Modellers' Society was founded in March 1958 to cater for those modellers interested in small scale model railways in the Wakefield area. The Society has since prospered and now owns its own spacious 2 storey premises near the city centre and organises a yearly exhibition. Members have a wide range of interests in all aspects of railway modelling and the prototype railway scene.

We meet every Monday and Friday evening from 7:30 p.m. (except Bank Holidays) and enjoy talks, demonstrations, film and slide shows of railway interest as well as the building of models. Guest speakers attend at least once a month on Mondays, while Fridays and the other Mondays are usually devoted to working on a variety of layouts. Many members take the opportunity to use the club's extensive library for research projects or to simply read the latest magazines.

The Society has recently benefited from an Awards for All grant which is being used to develop new layouts, build up an historical archive and provide an opportunity to learn new skills associated with railway modelling. Currently the society has layouts under construction in N, HO, OO, On30 and O gauges and new members are always welcome to assist.

We extend a warm welcome to prospective members who may wish to join the Society. Membership is open to anyone over the age of twelve, so why not come along on one of the evenings to the clubrooms which are located on Garden Street, Wakefield, WF1 1DX, behind the Tile and Bathroom World showroom on Ings Road.
