Welcome

Welcome to the Inverness and District Model Railway Club's Website


We are a small, friendly club based in Inverness. Our interests are wide and varied, with members modeling in N, 00, EM, 0, 014, 016.5, Gauge 1 and G Scale. We hold our annual show in August here in Inverness. Currently we have 4 club layouts and a number of members own layouts that are available for exhibiting. Our new 0 gauge project - Castle Morris has been rewired & extra scenery added. Our 00 gauge layout, Maltby has had an extension built to allow it to be used with one of our members layouts and an industrial area has now been built at the other end. We have an N gauge layout based on modern Scottish practice, and a large American N gauge layout set somewhere in Montana.


We are members of the AMRSS and are looking to recruit new members to help with our projects. We have successfully exhibited at ModelRail Scotland since 2009 with our layouts Salzburg MT, Mountain View, Rockfield Road and Cotesby.

If you would like to come and join the Club, either as a full member, or a friend, (this is for those that are unable to attend club nights regularly due to distance etc.)

We will be introducing workshops once a month, where a different aspect of modelling will be discussed, explained and demonstrated. If you are not sure of a certain aspect you can increase your knowledge from someone in the club that knows how.

---------------- News Update March 2016! ----------------

Our own new Club premises now confirmed as of 22nd March 2016

Old TA Drill Hall, Seaforth Road, Muir Of Ord.

We will begin work on cleaning up the premises, on the weekend of 2nd & 3rd April, from 10am each day!

We require as many members to attend? Also if any non members, who feel like helping out, will be made most welcome! Tea and coffee will be available. If you have a spare lawn rake, please bring this along to gather up leaves etc?

This will give us our own dedicated premises, to allow all our layouts to remain ready for use.
