The Blandford Forum Railway Club was formed in December 2014 and was previously known as the Blandford Museum Railway Club.
The Club moved to the Scout Hall which is situated in Eaglehouse Gardens Blandford Forum in January 2015, and is a spacious facility well suited to our needs. The reason for the move was due to the club expanding and outgrowing the space allocated to it in the Town Museum. With the club growing the Museum could not keep pace with the clubs needs.
The Club meets the first Friday night in the month and Guest speakers are invited to give illustrated talks on a regular basis throughout the year. Workshops are held every Wednesday mornings from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm and are open to everyone to work on the many varied projects which are being undertaken by members.
Friday Nights 7.30 pm to 9.30pm £2 per Member and £2 per guest payable on the door
(£3 per member and £3 per guest if speaker giving talk)
Wednesday workshops 8.30am to 12.30pm £1 payable on the Door
Refreshments are provided
There is ample car parking space at the Scout Hall, and all are welcome.
Annual membership is £20 per Annum
