The group was formed in April 2004 and moved into Keighley MRC clubrooms in January 2005. We presently have over 25 members spread across the North of England, from Preston to Bedale & Thirsk, up to Durham, down Wharfedale & along the Aire Valley from Skipton to Bradford, Halifax, Brighouse and Leeds.
The group's layout is held at the Keighley MRC and is available seven days a week, subject to absence for any shows. The layout presently measures 22' x 16' with three 45mm running tracks, two being MTS (dcc) and one analog. We have several sidings which double as passing loops and also a large engine shed area .
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2022
We have recently built a portable layout 11’x 16’, when attached to the existing layout this gives us a run of around 33’ and a large siding area for locos and rolling stock.
We have managed to do this with thanks from our main sponsor 75Media. They have committed to support the group as we grow in popularity and members. Their future commitment will not only be monetary, we will also have access to their billboard advertising network across Yorkshire to promote our events.
We are predominately LGB but not exclusively as members have a combination of other makes including live steam & battery.
We are a relatively small and friendly group and welcome anyone with an interest in our fun hobby.
There are a variety of outdoors meets and events throughout the "summer" staring in May and our final summer outdoor meet this year will be in November, patio heater at the ready!. So wrap up well if you would like to meet up with us. The venues will not be a disappointment.
The group holds running sessions, indoors on Tuesday evenings (Tuesday afternoons in the winter) and Saturday afternoons throughout the winter and early spring months at the Keighley Club Room.
Come along and join in.
So if you are interested or simply visiting the area, whatever the occasion you will be made most welcome.
