Send us your memories of the Northampton & District Model Railway Club. Click on the Memories button and get in touch!
The Northampton & District Model Railway Club was founded in the mid-1950s, and has always tried to promote model railways as a friendly and open group pastime.
We have had several venues over the years, and when I joined in 1987 the club was located on the top floor in Thornton Hall in Kingsthorpe.
Unfortunately, we had to vacate the hall when radon gas was discovered, and we took up an offer of a place in the Boys Brigade Hall in Duston for a couple of years.
We then moved to a Community Centre in Hunsbury Hill for two more years, until we were recently invited back to the Kingsthorpe Community Centre, adjacent to Thornton Hall that we had left previously.
If anyone has more information about our history, we would be delighted to receive it.
