Liphook & District MRC
Model Railway Club covering West Sussex, East Hampshire and south west Surrey
About the Club
We are a small local club, based at Milland (near Liphook) on the Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire border. Despite being a small club the membership has a wide variety of interests, predominately UK, German, Japanese and Italian; with a smattering of US, Swiss and anything else in between in all gauges N, 009, H0, 00, 0 and even Gauge 3.
We meet every Friday at Milland Village Memorial Hall (GU30 7NA) between 20:00 and 22:00. The club have three Exhibition layouts:
Titherleigh, a Southern Region branch line terminus set in 1950s West Country, is our current 00 exhibition layout. Control for this layout is Analogue DC. The layout made its debut at the Rotarail show in April 2017 and was featured in the September 2019 Railway Modeller.
'Inspired by Friedrichstrasse' Our H0 German Exhibition layout , set in the 1960s/70s Berlin. The layout is essentially complete, we are now at the stage of adding the little details to bring it to life. Control for the main lines is DCC, with the tram line operated through computer control. The layout made its successful debut at the Fareham Rotarail show in April 2019.
'Lavender Hill' our latest 00 layout in an advanced stage of development, set in South London in a fictitious location on the SE&CR route from Victoria to Dover with station and signal box buildings the Southern Railway Art Deco Style. The layout operates over a period from 1948 through to 1967 and the end of Steam on the Southern Region of British Railways. Control for this layout is both Analogue DC and Digital DCC.
There are also a number of members with their own layouts - some of which are available for exhibition. We like to think that we are a club with active and diverse interests, and regular exhibition attendance. Members have had articles published in the modelling press, including Continental Modeller and Railway Modeller. New Members are always welcome, for further details contact:
