About Us

Club Opening Hours Tuesday From 6:30PM Thursday From 10:30AM Plus Select Sundays

Following a letter to the editor of an early model railway publication, a number of like minded people met at a coffee shop in central Birmingham during December 1928. The club went on to hold its first meeting in january 1929 and with the exception of hostilities during 1939-1945 we have been meeting continuously ever since. From these humble beginings Birmingham Model Railway Club can be traced. Early meetings were held in Central Hall and St Thomas's School. The club then took possession of Hazzelwell, a disused former railway station in kings Heath, before moving to solihull's Kinghurst Community Centre during the 1990's. 

The club finally came back to Birmingham when it moved to the Fort Centre situated in the heart of the community in Castle Vale. We have now acquired our own club house in Cadbury Drive Castle Vale. With assistance from Birmingham City Council and other sponsors, extensive refurbishment has taken place providing the club with an excellent facility. 

The club supports the local community and is keen to promote the hobby of model railways amongst local youngsters, we also support other local model railway clubs by taking layouts to other exhibitions around the midlands. If you would like to find out more about becoming a member, come along to the club and see what we have to offer. We are open Tuesday evenings aswell as Thursday mornings, we also try to meet once a month on Sunday.
