Our run days as shown above are held on the 2nd and 4th weekend each month. April through October Sundays 1.30 - 4.30 and long weekends 10.30 - 4.30. November through March Saturday evening 6.00 - 8.30 including long weekends.

The club was formed in 1998 and our first section of track (a 400metre loop) was in use in November of that year. We now have a kilometre of track with 3 bridges and a tunnel and another section and bridge under construction. We are situated in Melrose Park which is about 10 hectares in size and contains a 2 hectare lake.

Members come from all walks of life and only one member worked in railways. Not all members own trains or wish to drive trains but find interest in helping around the club with construction or gardening etc. The club does have two for trains for members use.

We hold 2 working bees each week on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.

New members are always welcome.
