    Our building was put up during the second world war as part of an army camp and training centre. Occupation by USA troops is commemorated by a life-Size timber statue of a US sergeant sitting outside our building. Inside, the main model railway hall will be decorated with Royal British Legion bunting and goods for purchase in support of veterans. Our Chinley model railway will be occupied by trains from the first and second world wars. Otherwise, most of our model railways will be running as usual.
