History

Inverness & District Model Railway Club Ltd

As from 17th April 2012 we have become a registered Private Limited Company limited by guarantee, company number 422051. Our main reason for becoming a registered company was to safeguard the members from risk and to record, officially, our aim to pursue charitable objectives.

So you now have more reasons to apply for membership!

The Club was initially formed in January 1995 when a group of like minded individuals met in Charleston Community Centre. By the second meeting there were 22 people in attendance and a committee was formed but there was still no permanent home for the club. Eventually premises were secured on the Black Isle and meetings were held there until the property became unusable. A move to temporary premises in Balloch and then Culloden was made, which meant a period of limited growth until we moved to our last building in the Kinmylies area. We now have our own premises in Muir Of Ord. The TA Drill Hall, Seaforth road. For details, contact, the Secretary, ( See Club contacts).


The first exhibition was held in September 1995 in Charleston Academy. Through the years we have had a variety of one and two day shows in venues such as Dr Black's Hall, Spectrum Centre, Culloden Academy, the Old High Church Hall, and now the Jury's Inn Hotel, Inverness.


These days we are a bit better known and are regular exhibitors at other shows including, Elgin, Cupar, Glasgow, Aberdeen.

Pictures have now been added showing our layouts past and present to the Photo Gallery.
