The City of Canterbury Model Railway Society is made up of a small group of modellers with wide interests and skills ranging from Garden Railways to Hornby Dublo to 2mm Finescale.


We have members who enjoy running proprietary models straight out of the box, some who kit build and bash and some who have an interest in scratch building. The British scene, both modern and period predominates but American and Continental railways also have their afficianardos.


The club has a N Gauge and two OO gauge exhibition layouts and we are building a new N gauge layout. Several members also have exhibition layouts and details about these are on our Layouts page.


We meet every Monday evening between 7.00pm and 9.30pm at our clubroom in Nonington, about 5 miles east of Canterbury. Prospective new members are always welcome. Feel free to email us or make contact with any of the members listed on our Contacts page if you want any more information about the Society.



Message from our Exhibition Manager

With much regret I am writing to advise that yet again we have taken the difficult decision to cancel our annual exhibition which was planned for the 22/23 January 2022. This is after careful consideration of both health and financial factors, and is very disappointing to us all.


We hope that you will be able to attend our next exhibition planned for 21/22 January 2023 so make a note in your diary and on your calendar.


Thank you all for your support and understanding, and I very much hope we will get to see you in Canterbury next time!
