Our Layouts
Model Railway Weekend
Volunteers Section

Welcome to the official Ormesby Hall Model Railway Group site. We are a group of volunteers who operate and maintain several model railway layouts, based at the National Trust property, Ormesby Hall near Middlesbrough. The exhibition has been running for over 25 years and we now have 3 permanent layouts based at the hall and 2 portable layouts that we take to local events.

In 2019 we will be open Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the season. We are pleased to announce that we will be running the "Meet the Volunteers" on Sunday 12th May between 11am and 4pm. As well as the layouts, we will be using the marquee to demonstrate how to make and maintain rolling stock, making scenery and putting together a vintage 00 table top layout and we will be bringing out our n gauge portable layout "Aylehouses". There is no additional charge for access to the marquis. - For more information about charges and opening times, see the Ormesby Hall website

Other shows are advertised in the events drop down.

We receive visitors from all over the world and some run their own website. Use this link to see a Dutch visitor's site
