About PMRG

Established around 1960, our group exists to promote the hobby of Railway Modelling in and around Perthshire, Scotland. Our clubroom, “Shed 63A” is located at the Wester Pickston Railway and is open to members most Tuesdays and Thursdays from about 10.00 onwards and our traditional club evening is every Thursday from 7.15 We always welcome new members to come along for a look around before joining. Our members are available on the Public Running Days at Wester Pickston when we open our doors to display some of our layouts. Come along and check the progress of our layouts under construction and find out more about our new exciting developments.

We have 8 exhibition standard layouts at the moment, described on this site and within the group, several members are working on projects which will add to the number of layouts we have available. On the stocks at the moment are American outline N gauge, British OO gauge and O gauge layouts. Details of these will appear in due course.

We are also very much into “new technology” applied to model railways and have applied digital command control to a number of our layouts.

Additionally, maintenance work on the existing layouts keep us busy throughout the year. We have some photos and video of our layouts on this site – have a look at our layout pages!

We run one of the most eagerly anticipated and reputable model railway exhibitions in Scotland “A Celebration of Model Railways” always held in Dewars Ice Rink in Perth over the last weekend in June. This exhibition is the biggest club-run exhibition in Scotland. A selection of high quality layouts from throughout the UK, some appearing in Scotland for the first time and a wide selection of specialised trade stands awaits our visitors. See more details elsewhere on this site. See the show page for more information.

We also attend around 12 exhibitions every year throughout the UK.
