Welcome to Eltham Model Railway Club

The Eltham Model Railway Club, a small, but enthusiastic organisation based in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne, perhaps best known for their exhibition layout Murranbilla, described in AMRM Issue 258 (June 2006), is constructing a new exhibition layout, based on the Victorian north east mainline to Albury.

We are currently seeking to increase our membership, especially of those with the interest and expertise to expedite construction of the new layout. If this sounds like you, contact the club via email: info@elthammrc.org.au or please phone: 0416 277 783.

Exhibitions

We have participated in many exhibitions, most being located in the Melbourne Metropolitan area. Country exhibitions have included Stawell and Ballarat. To date Canberra is the only interstate exhibition EMRC has participated in. More information about past exhibitions.

Exhibition participation will not resume until the new layout is completed.
