The Seaboard Southern exists for any American Outline model railroader in the South Eastern catchment area (or beyond!) who enjoy socialising with fellow enthusiasts, although above all, they must want to have fun with model railroading!
Meetings are held every Friday evening between 18:30 and 22:30 at Tilgate Park, Crawley (near K2 Leisure Centre). We are currently building a new permanent HO layout, with an HO modular layout available for running. We have members also interested in N, HOn3 and On30.
There are a number of varied activities undertaken during meetings, including layouts brought along by members, modules, and sometimes also clinics that home in on various subjects ranging from DCC to scenery construction. A number of members are currently constructing their own HO and N scale modules, as well as helping with the construction of the Clubs new HO layout. During the year social events are arranged as an antidote to all the modelling activities. In addition to the evening meetings we also exhibit club layouts & members’ layouts at various model railway exhibitions in the South East.
Friday evening sessions are a mix of layout construction and train running. We are looking into possibly starting Saturday layout operating sessions, for those members who like the operations side of model railroading.
