Founded in 1977, Cupar & District Model Railway Club is a small but very friendly club with members from a varied background and ages, but with a common interest in Railways and model making. We organise the annual Cupar Model Rail that is normally held in the Corn Exchange every July.
We have a number award winning exhibition layouts in OO, HO, ON30 and O scale operating in DC and DCC. A new OO DC Layout "Glen Tay" is currently under construction in the club room by one of our members. We also attend many local shows, including those in Glenrothes, Perth, St Andrews, Dundee, check out our Exhibition Diary for this years plans.
If you would like to know more about our club, why not come along to our club room and have a chat with us. We meet Monday and Thursday nights 6.30pm - 9.30pm.
Membership is open to anyone over 14, with an interest in railways. You can get involved as much or as little as you like, our members have a variety of skill sets and are always happy to give help and advice. We are members of AMRSS Ltd the organisers of Model Rail Scotland.
