We were sad to hear of the passing of Robert Alexander Baron Schutzmann
von Schutzmansdorff ('Bob Symes' to you and I). A wonderful man, a
prolific inventor and TV presenter, a bastion of our hobby and, amongst
other jobs, President of Astolat Model Railway Circle.
Welcome to the Astolat Model Railway Circle website.
Many thanks to all our exhibitors and traders who
attended the 2015 exibition last Saturday. We hope all our
visitors also had a great day. Our next event is the Open Day at
Dapdune Wharf on 22nd August 2015.
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
