|Brambleton Model Railway Club can trace its roots back to 1947 when it began as an unofficial boys club. In January 1956 the formal club was formed with the aim of providing a youth based club for the benefit of young people in the Harpenden area who were interested in model railways. We first occupied an outdoor site in Roundwood Park before moving first to Wood End and then in 1961 to our present site adjacent to Highfield Oval (the home of Youth With a Mission) in Ambrose Lane, Harpenden.|
The club's main aim is to provide a venue for members, and guests, to run stock over the realistic track distances that the layout provides. The club owns a certain amount of both O gauge and SM32 stock, but many members also run their own stock. The emphasis is on operation rather than detailed modelling of a particular period or location.
The club is funded through its annual exhibition, held in Harpenden town
centre, and a number of open days held at the site.
