Visiting the Club — Public
Situated within the grounds of the Rail Transport Museum in Bassendean, there are no additional fees required to visit the model railway once you have entered the museum. The model railway and museum are open 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays, and 1 to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays during school holidays. (Note: the Rail Transport Museum is open every Wednesday afternoon throughout the year, but the model railway is only open on Wednesdays during school holidays.)
Enjoy a cool drink, a “cuppa”, a snack, or an ice-cream whilst watching the model trains in a relaxing environment. Nearby toilets with full wheelchair/disabled access and baby-change facilities make it an ideal outing for families or carers looking for a weekend activity.
All proceeds from sales at the model railway go directly to the on-going running of the WAMRC — donations are also gratefully accepted!
Visiting the Club — Fellow Modellers
We operate in N, HO and G scales, with working layouts (or actively under construction) in all three gauges. Prototypes are typically Australian or US, although European and British locos and rolling stock are not uncommon. We support both traditional DC and radio operated DCC control on the N scale layout and DCC on the club’s main HO layout. On the G scale layout we operate club-built battery operated radio controlled units and the occasional live steam.
The club opens every Wednesday evening from ~5 p.m. and visits from fellow modellers are always welcome. Follow the dirt road next to the railway line into the rear of the museum and head for the lights. See the path shown in the map below for more details.
