Visiting The Club

Visiting the Club — Public

Situated within the grounds of the Rail Transport Museum in Bassendean, there are no additional fees required to visit the model railway once you have entered the museum. The model railway and museum are open 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays, and 1 to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays during school holidays. (Note: the Rail Transport Museum is open every Wednesday afternoon throughout the year, but the model railway is only open on Wednesdays during school holidays.)

Enjoy a cool drink, a “cuppa”, a snack, or an ice-cream whilst watching the model trains in a relaxing environment. Nearby toilets with full wheelchair/disabled access and baby-change facilities make it an ideal outing for families or carers looking for a weekend activity.

All proceeds from sales at the model railway go directly to the on-going running of the WAMRC — donations are also gratefully accepted!

Visiting the Club — Fellow Modellers (or for donations)

We operate in N, HO and G scales, with working layouts (or actively under construction) in all three gauges. Prototypes are typically Australian or US, although European and British locos and rolling stock are not uncommon. We support both traditional DC and radio operated DCC control on the N scale layout and DCC on the club’s main HO layout. On the G scale layout we operate club-built battery operated radio controlled units and the occasional live steam.

There is generally someone at the club every Wednesday (typically between 10am and 8pm) and visits from fellow modellers are always welcome. Follow the dirt road next to the railway line into the rear of the museum and head for the lights. See the path shown in the map below for more details.

  7. Hi all
    I have some Triang and Hornby HO train and track for sale dating back to the 60s.
    Too much to list. Is there someone that would come and look at it for me in Yanchep as I am disabled and have trouble walking.
    Also have Scalextric track, cars etc from the 60s as well.
    Your help would be much appreciated.
