Welcome to the Burnham and District Model Railway Club WebSite
The Club was founded in 1976 with the aim of furthering the model railway hobby within Sedgemoor area of Somerset.
This is still the case today.
From the early beginnings in several rooms above a shop in Burnham town centre, with a layout that went through walls and over the stairs, the club has steadily grown in size. The club now has permanent rooms in the community centre.
We organise two exhibitions each year. The largest being Sedgemoor Rail, normally held over the August Bank Holiday weekend. The others being, ‘The Pre Christmas Exhibition’ held in November/December.
Apart from club layouts several club members also have their own layouts, and all members are welcome to assist with the development and operation of these.
We cater for the main gauges, N gauge OO gauge and O gauge, having no separate sub groups most members assist with all the different layouts irrespective of gauge.
We also attend and exhibit at exhibitions large and small, far and wide, developing links with many surrounding Model Railway Clubs.
