Warley MRC is a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) with the aims of advancing public education and fostering a general interest in model railways, railways and allied pursuits, and in particular to encourage a high standard of modelling amongst the members of the Club.
To this end, as well as providing facilities described on other pages for members, the Club from time to time promotes demonstrations by members and others on how to construct model railway layouts. The Club promotes or facilitates educational meetings on both model railways, the history of railways and allied transport systems. The Club holds open days to encourage and foster an interest in model railways and allied transport systems. The Club facilitates visits from members of the public to the Club to promote a better understanding of the hobby. It supports similar clubs and charities and events and encourages modelling for younger individuals between the age of 12 and 16. The Club organises educational visits for members to other organisations, preserved railways, museums and other places of interest to the modeller. The Club reference library is open to all members and indeed to the public by prior arrangement (but subject to supervised access) and the club is always willing to consider the provision of layouts or modelling related demonstrations for community events.
