Trent Valley Model Railway Society is a forward thinking group that operates at Weeford, between Lichfield and Tamworth, in Staffordshire on Thursday evenings between 7pm and whenever the final member leaves. The club operates a large permanent 00 gauge layout and a number of other more portable layouts in 00 and N gauge (the club’s Brian Street DCC 00 gauge layout was on show at the 2022 Warley National Model Railway Show where its double helix construction gained a great deal of attention). The club also organises a successful Annual Exhibition in Lichfield (17th September this year). The club has a growing and vibrant Junior group who are about to embark on their own layout construction project. The club is looking to expand its membership in both Junior and Senior groups for both 00 and N gauges.

We are a small group of railway and model railway enthusiasts who meet at our clubhouse near Lichfield, Staffordshire to build and operate our 2 mm and 4 mm (OO and HO) scale analogue and DCC club layouts.
Our Layouts are:
Weeford Town (OO gauage DC): Weeford Town is a fictious location somewhere near Lichfield. This layout is the main club layout and parts of it can trace its routes back many years from various previous layouts.
Bewdley (N gauage, aiming at DC and DCC): A rebuild of Bewdley station on the Severn Valley Line. This has been put on hold whilst other projects are completed.
Brian Street (OO gauage DCC): Brian Street is a ficitous location somewhere between Birmingham New Street and Birmingham International train stations. A modern era layout with a heritage railway attached. Attended Warley 2022.
Kinnear Shed (OO gauage DCC): A steam era locomotive depot still in development.
Layout built by members:
Cathedral City (HO gauage DCC): An American modular layout.
Buckland Road (O gauage DCC): A transition era locomotive depot.
Welby Street (OO gauge DCC): A commuter station on a secondary line set in the 1960s – 70s.
Baggies TMD (OO gauge DCC): A modern diesel depot.
Below is a video produced by by Christopher Wright of our recently deceased club President Bill Kinnear talking about the club.
