Heywood Model Railway Group is located in a large building at Unit 3 Park Works, River Street Heywood. (see the how to find us page for a map and travelling directions) The layouts in our club room range from N gauge at 16 feet through to the O gauge which is over 40 feet long and there is always work going on maintaining or improving them. Pictures and details of all our layouts can be found by clicking on the links at the head of each page on this site.
A new 0 gauge layout is proposed to be built and will occupy a space of 50ft by 25ft being a continuous run with 4 complete tracks all the way round. If your main interest is in 0 gauge then why not come along and get invoved in this new project?

Many of our members also have their own layouts at home and several of these layouts have attended exhibitions all over the country. Details of these can be found by clicking on the links to them lower down this page.

Meetings are held in our building on River Street Heywood during the following times. Monday evenings from 18:30 to 22:00 and Wednesday from 10:00 to about 14:00
If you are interested in joining the group then feel free to call in and see us during the above times. Should you want more information about our activities then you can send an email to any member of the committee who will be pleased to give you the details you require.

Also on this site there is a Technical Topics section where there is help and tips on several subjects connected with railway modelling. These can be found via the link below or clicking here.
The history of the Heywood Model Railway Group can be found in the Archive pages. Also in this section are some pictures of past models that have been sold on to our own Group members or in some cases to members of the public.

Many of the pictures on this site are less than the full size taken by the camera. Hovering your mouse over the image will indicate if a larger version is available. To see it in a larger size click on the image and the full picture will open in a new window. Close the last image window before opening another one.

Our next main exhibition in March 2015 will be held at Rochdale Town Hall. Details can be found here and will be kept updated as more information becomes available.
