Facilities

We have our own clubhouse located at the Hollycombe SteaPond.jpgm Collection

The facilities include: Large boating lake, 5″ and 3.5″ outdoor railway, 7.25″ portable railway, ’00’ gauge railway, model boats, ‘N’ gauge railway.

Workshop facilities: Lathes, Drill presses, hand tools and more.

We have recently extended 031_31-2our LMC Clubhouse which houses workbenches and machine tools. This gives our club members extra space to work on their projects.

Details about the facilities: the 5″ and 3.5″ track is circular and about 400 feet in length. We also have our own portable 7.25″ railway which we take out to local fairs and similar functions which helps to raise funds for the club. Volunteers are always wanted to help setup the track and to drive the engine.

Winter facilities: As well as the Hollycombe based facilities, during the winter, the club has access to a workshop at Bohunt School. This is an opportunity to arrange coaching sessions in the use of machine tools and workshop techniques (just ask one of the committee and we’ll arrange it).

In addition, the club is able to arrange insurance and provide steam boiler test certification.
