Well that’s another year passed. I don’t know about you, but for me they seem to come around quicker each time. Looking on the bright side, maybe Santa brought you something nice this year and if it was Model Railway related then it’s possible our local club can help you turn it into something special
Our club was founded about ten years ago with the aim of promoting and providing a meeting point for anyone interested in model railways.
Originally it was called The Camposol & District Model Club, as most of the founding members came from the area, but over time we have gained members from further afield so we needed a new name to reflect that change. Our core membership at the moment is around eight people from the Murcia area with a range of interests in model railways of all scales and eras.
This diversity has turned out to be a bonus as it provides an opportunity to exchange ideas and swap information between people with different interests, so usually if you have a problem with a project there is someone within the group who can provide a solution.
We welcome anyone, whatever their area of expertise or skill level, to come and join us and add their input to the club. Meetings are normally held each month at a convenient location, or by invitation at the home of one of our members which gives everyone a chance to see their work first-hand and learn and comment on it. Everything is very informal; no committees, just a group of friends with a mutual interest sharing their experience and knowledge.
Moving with the Times
A Model Railway is a constantly evolving hobby with new techniques emerging all the time. Two of the recent ones are 3D Printing and Laser Cutting and among our group we have members who use these systems, so if you want to learn about these new methods, or just chat with like-minded people, we are here.
We are currently setting up our new website so it is still a work in progress, but what is available so far can be seen at https://murciamodelrailwayclub.com
There is a contact link on the website, or you can call Richard directly on 666 186 037
