About Us

The club was formed in 1960 by a small group of modellers, and was originally known as the East Ham and District Model Railway Society. After moving to Barking in 1970 the name was changed to the Barking and District Model Railway Society, and we continued to flourish under that name at several locations in the Barking and Dagenham area. 

In May 2008 we moved our clubroom back to the club's original roots - East Ham. Following the move we also changed our name to East Ham and District Model Railway Club, to reflect our return to East Ham. In 2014 we moved again, this time further out of London and are situated very close to Elm Park station. The current clubroom is unfortunately only a temporary clubroom as it is rather restrictive and so we are still looking for a permanent venue to site our clubrooom.

The club today has more than 25 members covering a wide range of ages and interests. New members are always welcome, whether you are an experienced modeller or are just starting and want to learn more about the hobby We have layouts in  OO9 and EM, which have been seen at exhibitions around the country. We are hoping to make a start soon on a new OO. To read descriptions of the layouts click on Layouts
