Well finally after all the rain and wind we now have got better weather which means that we can roll our sleeves up and make a start on the different hobbies and pastimes that we each enjoy.
In our case that means modelling and model railways in particular, so now we can look forward to regular meetings for chats and exchange of information plus visits to some of the layouts available. These layouts cover a wide range of themes reflecting their owners’ interests and cover different regions and eras of the last 60 years.
Our club is based in the Murcia region of Spain as the name implies, with members located at various places around there. It is a very informal group, no rules or committees, just a group of friends sharing a common interest and a willingness to exchange ideas and learn from each other. We usually meet once a month at a pre-arranged venue and everyone is welcome, so, if you are new to the hobby or have been modelling for more years than you care to remember, we don’t mind.
We have a website where visitors can view our work and see what we have been doing and your privacy is always protected online – no personal details such as names and addresses are ever given out without your permission.
There is a wide range of technology in use; the layouts themselves are controlled from sources such as a standard 2 wire connection right up to full computer control and everything in between. New methods are also used such as 3D printing and laser cutting, one of the photos shows rows of terraced houses and a complex station roof which were produced by the owner specifically for his layout, this variety means that whatever your interest or problem there should be someone here to discuss it with.
We also welcome members who don’t live full time in Spain but have holiday homes here or just like to get away from the English weather. It is always very nice to meet a new face and chat about our hobby where you never stop learning. So, whether you are here full time or part-time if model railways interest you please get in touch.
There is a contact form on the website or you can ring Richard on the number on our banner in the magazine
