Uckfield Model Railway Exhibition 2023 - Uckfield Station Parking

As our publicity stated, by arrangement with Network Rail and APCOA, the Uckfield Station car park was free to use both on the Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd October by visitors to the town and exhibition. Uckfield Railway Station Free Parking

However, the Uckfield Model Railway Club is aware that APCOA issued PCNs to some of those that used the Uckfield Station car park to visit the Exhibition. We have received an apology from APCOA and have been assured that "all the PCN's issued for visits on either 21st/22nd October have been cancelled in full". Apparently their system was recently upgraded and it appears that a technical glitch caused the removal of the enforcement to fail, resulting in it still being live.

If you were affected by this, please accept the Club's apologies, but hopefully the situation is now resolved.

The Uckfield Model Railway Club caters for those who have an interest in modelling railways in the smaller scales (eg 2mm/ft, 4mm/ft, 7mm/ft etc). Currently the Club has layouts in 0 and 00 on the exhibition circuit, with two further layouts in P4 and N under construction.

Club modelling activities revolve around meetings at our dedicated Clubroom in the centre of Uckfield, East Sussex. At these meetings work continues on new and existing Club layouts with different layout sections meeting at various times throughout the week, both during the day and in the evenings.

To compliment these modelling sessions, the Club meets together on the third Monday evening each month from 7.30pm. This is in the rear hall of a local hostelry, The Alma Arms in Framfield Road, where lectures and demonstrations on model railway construction techniques are held. On other Monday evenings, the Club meets 'virtually' via an online Skype meeting room where railway modelling and various topics of the day are discussed.

The Club is active in the model railway exhibition scene, both with Club and Member's layouts. Trips are also arranged to exhibitions outside of the local area.

The Club organises its own annual Model Railway Exhibition in the local Civic Centre which has gained a reputation for one of the best club shows in the south-east of England. Following our very successful show this year, the next exhibition will be held on the 19th & 20th October 2024 in the Uckfield Civic Centre. Click here for more information regarding the show, our thirty-ninth to be held in the town.

The Club has a community outreach project actively supporting students from the Uckfield College Model Railway Club. We help and sponsor layout construction and our members give their time to assist the young people at their weekly school club sessions and when they take their layout(s) to exhibitions and other events.

Purely social events are held on an occasional basis, with an informal Club dinner organised for all our members and their partners on the Saturday evening of our model railway exhibition, an event to which guest exhibitors are also invited.

The Club publishes an electronic newsletter on a regular basis throughout the year, giving advance notice of forthcoming events and activities.
