Brighton MRC was founded in 1971 and celebrated its 40th birthday on the 7th of October 2011. We currently have around 20 members and always welcome more.

Meetings are every Tuesday (except Bank Holidays and the Tuesday between Christmas and New Year) from 1930 to approx 2200 at London Road Railway Station, Shaftesbury Place (off Ditchling Rise) in Brighton, East Sussex, UK. The clubrooms are in what was originally the Ladies waiting room. We have club layouts in OO, HO gauge and OO9.  Our members have a wide variety of interests ranging from London Brighton and South Coast Railway in O gauge through London & South Western Railway in OO through to the Denver and Rio Grande in N scale and everything in between!

As well as building and operating our layouts, we run other events throughout the year such as film and slide shows, an annual competition for members models and of course our exhibition in November each year.
