Welcome to the Heywood Model Railway Group Website
|Heywood Model Railway Group is now located
on the ground floor at Warwick mill, Oldham Road Middleton in a part of
the section leased by the
Project where we have a large area allowing us to have all the
current club models set up. It took us about 7 months of hard work to
make the area of the mill floor suitable for our needs. This included
erecting lots of stud walling and providing electrics and lighting.
Pictures of our completed club room can be
seen here and a photographic
record of some of the work involved can be
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.
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 at Warwick mill during the following times. Monday evenings from 18:30 to 22:00 and Wednesdays 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 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.
