 Celebrating 40 years of ARA.


This month (September 2019) we celebrate 40 years since the first meeting of an embryonic ARA. Follow the above link for a brief history of the Association.


The current layouts at the club consist of a 6' x 3' Z Gauge, a 24' x 4' N Gauge, a 12' x 4' Beginners' 00 Gauge, a 24' x 11' 00 Gauge and a 41'x 15' 0 Gauge.

Our regular club meeting night is Friday, from around 7:15 pm until 10:00 pm.  Some members also attend during the day, on Mondays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and the 0 Gauge meet on a Thursday evening. Refreshments are available.

We have approximately 70 members, including a junior membership.

The club room is large enough to house all five model railway layouts simultaneously.
