About EMRC

join-badge-exThe Eltham Model Railway Club, a small, but enthusiastic organisation based in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne, perhaps best known for their exhibition layout Murranbilla, described in AMRM Issue 258 (June 2006), is starting construction of a new exhibition layout, based on the Victorian north east mainline to Albury.

We are currently seeking to increase our membership, especially of those with the interest and expertise to expedite construction of the new layout. If this sounds like you, contact the club via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or please phone: 0416 277 783.


We have participated in many exhibitions, most being located in the Melbourne Metropolitan area. Country exhibitions have included Stawell and Ballarat. To date Canberra is the only interstate exhibition EMRC has participated in. For more information about past exhibitions please go to the Exhibitions link above.

Exhibition participation will not resume until the new layout is completed.

Joining EMRC

New members are most welcome!

Due to our relatively small size joining EMRC is a somewhat casual process.

Shelf Layout Progress

The shelf layout is progressing well. The electrics, that is the electrical duplication of the rails underneath the layout, is almost done. 

New Layout for Leith Park

Doug Willett was approached by Adrian from Leith Park Retirement Community about what to do with a large collection of model railway equipment that had just recently been left to them.
