By rail the nearest station is Crews Hill (1 mile away) with trains from Finsbury Park/Moorgate/Hertford North.
The Enfield Whitewebbs Railway Modellers have been meeting regularly since the 1980's. The club was originally based at the Enfield Royal Small Arms Factory and in the early 2000's moved to the museum and its unique clubhouse BR Mk2 Brake Carriage No. 977767 located in the museum grounds.
The railway carriage is usually open when the museum is open and holds most of our layouts which you can see operating. Generally this is every Tuesday between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. (last entry at 3 p.m.) and the last Sunday of each month (with some exceptions).

We currently have 4 layouts we are working on - in N, OO and O gauge scales. Most you can see in the carriage:
This is our main club layout - around 20 foot long, permanently installed in the carriage. It is a large city layout depicting a two track upper level suburban line with station plus warehouse complex, and a four track lower level heavy freight and express passenger lines. Currently undergoing refurbishment to the scenery.
Currently under construction. 24ft long - A steam to diesel transition layout based on a branchline terminus station with an exchange siding to a small industrial works. Most of the track is installed, wiring is in and we can run our first trains...! Lots more to go - want to help us?
This layout was donated to the club in 2017 and has subsequently been refreshed and updated with a new look, scenics and the castle. Featuring a single line with small siding complex. You are welcome to come and drive/play with this layout when you visit the carriage.
A brand new layout for 2019 its been designed by children, for children and even built by a 6 year old! 4 foot square, double track layout with signals designed for two people to independently operate. This will be making it debut at our show in September - and you can read more about its construction here.
We meet every Tuesday 10am to 4pm, Thursday 8pm to 10pm and one sunday each month when the museum is open.
New members are always welcome - if you have an interest in railways and/or modelling then why not come and join us? No previous experience is necessary! You can attend as often or as little as you are able.
There are around 20 members of the club and with interests in G, O, OO and N gauge scales; the club holds a wide selection of stock available for running (playing with) and you are also welcome to bring along your own stock to run on our layouts. To join: Just come along when we are open and say "Hello" and we'll give you a cup of tea or coffee!
Membership is £20 per year (and includes full access to the museum too) and there are no further attendance fees.
