About Us

Blyth & Tyne Model Railway Society is the oldest and largest model railway club in Northumberland. We changed our name in 2010 from the Blyth & District Model Railway Society. This is to reflect the growing number of members from the Tyneside area, and also Blyth & Tyne was the name of a pre-grouping railway in the area.

The club have some 96 members ranging in ages from the youngest aged 14 and the oldest aged 85. The club caters for all model railway enthusiasts in all gauges. 

We currently have layouts in 2mm, N, 3mm, HO, EM, OO, O, G1 and G Scale gauges and would welcome any new member who models in these gauges or any other gauge and who wishes to improve their modelling skills or have any skills they could pass on. We currently meet every Wednesday morning from 10:00am until 12:00pm, and evening 7:00pm until 10:00pm. Then every Thursday evening from 7:00pm until 10.00pm in our new club house in the 'First Floor Offices, 40 Saville Street, North Shields, Tyne & Wear NE30 1NT.
