Who are we?

The HG&DMRS is broad based group with approximately 60 members. We meet on Fridays ( main club evening ) and Mondays from 08:00pm to 10:00pm at the Methodist Church Hall, Hazel Grove. (Map)

What do we do?

We have several modelling projects in various stages of completion ranging in scales from 7mm/foot through to 2mm/foot.For more details of these please select one of the layouts below.

Events.

Our next public event will be our annual Open Day Spring 2003. Details will be published soon.

 


Summary of Layouts.

 

* Ash Valley A 7mm scale 0 Gauge layout. Constructed to 'flexible' standards with some interesting household items used for modelling materials. It is an imaginary location where a private meets the Midland and London & North Western Railways, somewhere near Manchester. (Updated 12th December 2002)
* High Peak Tramway . A mature 0n16.5 narrow gauge layout. Even though it is modelled to the highest standards changes and improvements are constantly in progress.Includes photos. (Updated 1st July 2000)
* American HO Layout is now under construction by the team that brought us the erstwhile Middlehurst. (Updated 24th January 1999). (no photos yet)
* Exchange Street. This the latest 4mm/foot '00' layout. The model is of a small urban terminus. Its construction is well advanced and is popular with the young members of the club. (Updated 24th January 1999).
* Hazel Valley is a large 4mm scale 00 layout. This is the largest in the club and hence our main project. It depicts exchange sidings between the Hope Valley line (ex Midland Railway) and a branch line to quarries.(Updated 16th November 2000).

 

Facilities.

For the entertainment and edification of the members, there is a Club Library plus a quarterly in house magazine called the Hazel Grove Chord.

We also have the very British ritual tea drinking ceremony mid way through each of our club meetings, so a strong bladder is a pre-requisite
