This Group was developed by and for model railway enthusiasts. Members build their own model railways. Model railways have evolved significantly over the years generally becoming increasingly sophisticated mostly as a result of computerisation. These can vary in their scale and sophistication across different Members.
Some Members have very elaborate models that they have built and developed over many years. The Group’s Members take turns to host meetings and Members sometimes take their model trains to run on the tracks of host Members.
Members therefore share equipment, information about the latest developments in model railway equipment and personal experiences, learning new model building techniques from each other.
This group is convened by Alan Foster whose contact details are published in the Epping Forest U3A Prospectus. Meetings are held on an ad hoc basis in members' homes.
