Welcome to the Brighton Model Railway Club home page.

Due to a major failure of the PC that updates this site and the fact that updates were still via a dial up link, as Freeserve websites cannot be updated via broadband, the club has decided to join the 21st century and we have a new website under construction!

The new website is at www.brightonmrc.com and is live now but in a very basic form.

As from today there will be no further updates to this site only at the new one.  

In a month or two I will put an automatic redirect from this site in place. 

 Regards BMRC Webmaster.

Diary of Events



The Sussex Rambler


Brighton MRC was founded in 1971 and celebrated its 40th birthday on the 7th of October 2011. We currently have around 20 members and always welcome more.

Meetings are every Tuesday (except Bank Holidays and the Tuesday between Christmas and New Year) from 1930 to approx 2200 at London Road Railway Station, Shaftesbury Place (off Ditchling Rise) in Brighton, East Sussex, UK. The clubrooms are in what was originally the Ladies waiting room. We have club layouts in 00 gauge and O-16.5 as well as a test track which has N, OO coarse and finescale, EM and O gauges. Our members have a wide variety of interests ranging from London Brighton and South Coast Railway in O gauge through London & South Western Railway in OO through to the Denver and Rio Grande in N scale and everything in between!

Anyone aged 18 or over is eligible to join, details on the membership page.

As well as building and operating our layouts, we run other events such as film and slide shows, quiz nights, an annual competition for members' models and an exhibition in November each year.

London Road station is the first stop out of Brighton on the line to Lewes. Services are operated by the Southern Railway and run 4 times an hour throughout the day, reduced services evenings and Sundays.

Closest bus stops to the station are on the 5, 5A and 5B route in Beaconsfield Villas / Preston Road or the 26 route in Ditchling Road.
Services are operated by Brighton & Hove Bus company. Both stops are just a few minutes away from the station which is signposted.
