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.


Our 2022 Exhibition will be our 32nd - Further details are on our Exhibition page.


We are planning our 32nd Exhibition for January 2022 and hope that there will not be anymore restrictions or lockdowns that will mean we will have to cancel again. 


Please check our Exhibition page for our latest updates on the layouts attending and the flyer below for more details of when and where.
