Norwich Model Railway Exhibition 2022, Sweet Briar Road closure: Suggested diversion for visitors travelling from the south using the A11, A140 and B1108 and west using the A47.

The Sweet Briar Road which forms part of the A140 Norwich ring road and would normally need to be traversed to reach our exhibition venue is closed due to a burst water main causing damage to the foundations of a former railway bridge so we suggest you take the following diversion to reach the exhibition.

From the south use the A140 ring road until you get to the roundabout at the bottom of Guardian Rd which is a long descending hill, take the 3rd exit and head into Norwich on the Dereham Rd and take the first left turn into Waterworks Rd. Follow the until you come to a set of traffic lights and turn left onto the A1024 Mile Cross Rd and at the roundabout take the first exit onto the A1067 Drayton Rd. Keep on this road and at the ‘large’ traffic light controlled junction go straight over and you will now be on the normal route to the exhibition and take the right turn into Middletons Lane at the second set of traffic lights and the school entrance is about 200 yards down there.

From the west turn left at the traffic light controlled crossroad junction into Marl Pit Lane and follow this through to the traffic light junction with Drayton Rd and go straight over to Middletons Lane, please note; there is a 3ton weight limit on this route.

Welcome to the homepage of the Norwich Railway Heritage & Model Society.
The society traces its history, under various names, over many years and records exhibiting layouts in as early as 1957! Our modelling section is called “Norwich Model Railway Club”.
We aim to foster and further the interests of members and the public, in all aspects of railway modelling, prototype railways and allied pursuits. The modelling section caters for most model railway interests in steam, diesel and electric traction, historic or modern in O, OO, HO and N.

We currently have nine layouts:

  1. Acle- A OO gauge, modern image model of Acle station in Norfolk.
  2. Brooklands Park- A 00 gauge model of a large Eastern Region based through-station.
  3. Charleston- A N gauge twin-track oval layout.
  4. Eastport- An 0 gauge finescale terminus, again based in the Eastern Region.
  5. Obervaz- A HOm narrow gauge model, based upon the Rhatische Bahn in Switzerland.
  6. Woodford Halse- A 00 gauge finescale model of Woodford Halse station on the Great Central.
  7. Padlam Junction- A small 00 gauge layout, inspired by the Hornby ‘Build It’ series.
  8. The Test Track- An decagon [10-sided!] track, with 7 different gauges on offer, allowing anything to be run.
  9. ‘Arnold’s Layout’ – A 00 layout built in the late 1960’s by the late Arnold Hoskins, and donated to NORHAMS as a historical record of the early years of railway modelling.

Some evenings are spent working on the club’s layouts and informally discussing railways and modelling. The last Wednesday of each month is running night when members run their locos and stock on our layouts.
