History

History

Merseyside Model Railway Society was founded in 1949 and for eight years was based in Liverpool. We then moved to Chester Street, Birkenhead, where we had accommodation ‘above the shops’. Thirty-nine years later, in 1996, the building - known as the Antiques Triangle - was designated for renewal. With the help of Wirral Borough Council, we then moved to accommodation at the Cavendish Enterprise Centre in Brassey Street. As this was in a development area, the development finally caught up with us (in 2010) and the Wirral Borough Council was again very helpful in finding us a new home nearby in Laird Street, Birkenhead. We bought these premises in north Birkenhead from the Council in summer 2013 and have rearranged ourselves in them.

The Society is proud of its community involvement: regular exhibitions on the Wirral and open days offer public insights into the hobby and a commission to create a model of Birkenhead Woodside gave us a permanent showcase in the Wirral Museum in Hamilton Square. Unfortunately this has now closed, but the model is still intact and in safe storage.
