WELCOME

Welcome to the Astolat Model Railway Circle website.

Situated in Guildford, Surrey, our friendly club caters for model railway enthusiasts in scales ranging from 0 through 00 to N.  We have about 30 active members whose modelling interests span the periods from the pre-grouping eras right through to modern image trains of today.  Both standard and narrow gauge  are catered for and a number of members have an interest in industrial and mineral railways.  Although the club layouts feature conventional control systems, several members have experience in DCC operation.

We meet on Tuesday evenings in Dapdune Wharf's Barge Building Shed on the National Trust property at the end of Wharf Road, right next to the Cricket Ground.

If you are interested in progressing from a train set to model railway, you are already a railway modeller or just want to see what its all about, why not come and visit us one Tuesday (Please contact our Chairman, details on the "Contact Us" page, so that we can arrange entry to the site).  Don't be concerned that you won't be good enough! Members have joined us fearful of starting their own layout and by watching and taking part in the construction of the club layouts, they have gone on to build their own railway.

Our annual one-day exhibition has a fine reputation for showing layouts covering a wide variety of themes plus excellent trade support and takes place in January.  Clicking "Our Exhibition" on the left will provide you with details.

We have several model railway layouts constructed by our members on club nights and these are available for exhibition.   Details of the layouts can be found by clicking "Club Layouts" on the left.  If you would like to see our layouts clicking "Where We Will Be" on the left gives details of exhibitions we'll be attending and what layout we are planning to take.

If you'd like us to bring one of our layouts to your exhibition, go to the "Contact Us" page.
