Welcome to the website of the Stowmarket Railway Club
We hope that you will be able to find all the information you require in these pages, but should you have any further questions or comments please let us know - the addresses can be found on the Contacts page.
The club was founded in 1977 with the aim of stimulating interest in both Railways and Model Railways, and meets every Tuesday evening throughout the year at our clubrooms near Stowmarket.

Whilst the majority of the club nights are social / modelling evenings, we also aim to organise a number of evenings on real railways when we have presentations from visiting speakers or members.

The club has an extensive library of books and DVD's on railways and railway modelling which are available for members to borrow.

We are also compiling an archive of information on the changing railway scene over the years, which concentrates on the section of line between Needham Market and Haughley Junction.

Event News ....
After due consideration, we have reluctantly decided that running 'Toy & Train' fairs this year is not viable.

We hope to recommence our normal events in 2022 with the first being a 'Toy & Train' fair at the Needham Market Community Centre on Sunday 6th March 2022.

The Library area
Nile Street Basin
On the modelling front, we have an 'O' gauge Exhibition layout called Nile Street Basin which has attended many shows in the area, and is currently undergoing refurbishment.

We also have new layouts under construction in both 'OO' and 'N' gauge and a multi-gauge Test Track which is permanently set up in the clubrooms. Please see the Layouts page for more details about our modelling activities.
The Test Track
The club also organises a Model Railway Exhibition at the end of April each year and two Toy & Train Fairs (sometimes known as Swapmeets) in March and October.  Details of these events can be found on the Exhibition and Toy and Train Fair pages of this site.

If you would like any further information about the club and it's activities, please email us and we will endeavour to answer your queries. .

New members are always welcome, so if you would like to come and see what we get up to, please drop us a line (details on the 'contact' page) and we will let you know how to find us.
The workshop area - but it's not usually this tidy!
