Welcome to the
NOARLUNGA MODEL RAILROADERS Inc.
The formation of an incorporated club followed in 1994. The Noarlunga Model Railroaders Incorporated was formed with a charter to promote the hobby. The membership has steadily grown with many active members, from very young in age to the young in heart, each with their own specialty giving our club a very diverse expertise and membership base.
The club is proud to have its own air-conditioned clubrooms on the historical site of the former Reynella Railway Station, Old Reynella. Julie Grieg MP officially opened our clubrooms on 6th December 1998.

Model railways are never finished and ours are no exception. There is often some addition or alteration happening to the layouts, and all members are encouraged to help and learn through this work.
All types of HO/OO trains are accepted both in prototype and quality, straight from the box, to modified or scratch built. There are plenty of members who are both willing and able to help with these last two aspects; this is just one of the many benefits of a club membership.
All our layouts have wiring for normal DC and also DCC operation capability.
Feel free to call into the clubrooms, talk to some members and see what we are all about.
We are open: Saturdays 12.00 pm to 5.00 pm
1st Saturday of each month is a Club Open Day 1.00 pm to 5.00 pm.
Tuesdays 7:30 pm to 10 pm
Thursdays 12.00 pm to 5.00 pm.
Other times by appointment.
Members can run any type of train that will suit the HO/OO two-rail track of our layouts. It is possible to see a train from almost anywhere in the world on running days. Kids are most welcome to both visit and join the club but an adult must accompany the very young.
Due to Government regulations intended to control the spread of this virus the Noarlunga Model Railroaders Clubrooms have now re-opened but are operating with restrictions until further notice. Please contact the club for further details.

We welcome new members to join us at any time.
We organise and run swapmeets during the year to allow members and the public to sell unwanted railway items and to buy that elusive spare part or loco.
During October every second year (even years) we organise a model railway exhibition in the southern suburbs of Adelaide to help promote our hobby.
We display our portable layout (currently Lakeside) at exhibitions and similar displays, such as fairs and fetes in both South Australia and interstate.
We support the St. Johns Ambulance volunteers with donations of funds from the proceeds from our exhibitions and swapmeets
We create and develop fellowship and friendship through our shared enthusiasm for our hobby.
Would you like us to be part of your event? We can put on a display for you. Contact us to find out how we may be able to help you.
