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 on Saturday 17th January.  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 Ground. For further information of the sorts of things we get up to go to Club Nights
