Open Days are held in the Club Room-The Old Brewery, Lodge St, off Croft St, Preston PR1 8ST-located in the centre of Preston within easy walking distance of the railway station and with plenty of off-street parking. We ask for a donation of £3 from non-member visitors. Refreshments are served, notably the legendary and delicious pies for which there are now two ovens in operation. And there is a toilet ! With hot water ! Saturday opening times are roughly 11.00-4.30 and Sundays 11-4.
The club has an end-to-end layout called 'Little Tangle on the Wyre' which is built for DCC operation, it is strictly DCC only. Although primarily built for diesels, suitably equipped steam outline models are welcome to use it. At the moment, it is not (yet) fully scenicked but is a 'work in progress.' It is always available for Saturday Open Days (unless it has a major problem) and is usually, but not always, available for use on the Sunday Open Days. The new MPD 'Marsh Lane' is under construction, has track and some bulidings in place and is working and even has a working turntble.Visitors are welcome to display their locos on it whilst awaiting a turn on the main layout.
