Aberdeen Model Railway Club

Really Useful Guides!

There have been so many advancements in technology in our hobby over the last twenty years that it can be hard to keep up! As this is a hobby to most of us, it also means that what little time we do get to spend on it, we want to be doing something productive - or playing trains! - but we most definitely don't want to spend hours trawling the internet or old magazines to find out how to fit a decoder, wire a point motor, or how to control your trains with an iPad!

That is why we at Aberdeen Model Railway Club have these guides. They are useful for us when we forget, so hopefully modelers the world over can benefit from them!

If there are any topics you would like covered, please feel free to get in touch. Similarly, if there is something you see wrong with any of the guides or if you have something you would like featured please do get in touch.

The guides on these pages are spilt into categories as much as possible. The aim is to provide a one stop shop for anything you need to know, however, this is a hobby for us too and therefore time is limited to produce the guides whilst also carrying out other club duties - so please bear with us and check back often!
