Last weekend the Butser Modular Railway Group put on their annual display in the Park Centre. The BMRG is an N gauge model railway club which was started by a small group of enthusiasts in November 2009.


Members construct their own modules to a defined set of specifications. These are then all joined together on club nights, or for the annual display, to form one large circuit.


Construction and alteration of the modules is an ongoing process with members sharing modelling and electrical skills.


Visitors are welcome to join the group on club nights which take place in the Park’s Annexe on the first Monday of each month from 7.00pm to 10.00pm.


N gauge modelling is very popular for people who have limited space in the spare room, loft or garden shed. The build ratio is 1:148 and the gauge is 9mm (across the tracks). For more information go to the N Gauge Society’s web-site on
