Weymouth Model Railway Association
For enthusiasts of scale railway modelling

Welcome to Weymouth Model Railways – the website of the Weymouth Model Railway Association (WMRA).

We cater for railway modellers in all the main scales from N to O and welcome new members and visitors to the town. We have N, OO and O gauge layouts as well as interest in OO9 and Hornby Dublo. Our layouts are continuously evolving.

We aim to hold an open day and a major exhibition in Weymouth each year. We also take our layouts and those of our members to other club events.

If you are interested in model railways we are sure to have something that will interest you. We cater for old and young, beginner and expert alike, and pride ourselves in being a friendly club that welcomes new members.

If you want to find out more about membership, just turn up on a Monday (except bank holidays) and have a chat. There’s no obligation to join and you can enjoy three free sessions  before deciding.

We meet every Monday evening, except bank holidays, at the Upwey & Broadwey Memorial Hall in Victoria Avenue, Upwey, Weymouth DT3 5NG between 7 and 10 pm.

We have a running night on the first non-bank holiday Monday of each month. Other Monday meetings concentrate on layout planning and construction – and, of course, a cup of tea and a biscuit.

The Spring Open Day was enjoyed by everyone that attended.

Thanks to the generous donations on the day, we raised £156 for Weldmar Hospicecare.

Getting to the Open Day by bus:

Parking is very limited, but the number 10 (Weymouth – Dorchester) bus stops nearby on Dorchester Road; use the Stottingway stop. 
Also the number 2 (Weymouth – Littlemoor) stops about a 5 minute walk away; use the Jestys Avenue stop and then walk north on Dorchester Road.

and looking forward to our 2024 Exhibition!
