Penrhyn Garden Railway

The Joys of Life Model Railway Club

The objective of The Joys of Life Model Railway Club is to encourage and promote Model Railway activities at the Joys of Life Country Park, North Wales. We are heavily involved with the maintenance & operation of the 600-yard long ground level 5 inch gauge miniature railway described on this website which operates within the park. Our greatest annual expense is that of public liability insurance for the railway, this allows us to offer train rides to visitors. We welcome new members who are interested in participating in the club’s activities, but equally welcome are members who wish to make the financial contribution of the membership fee to the cost of the railway’s insurance policy and enjoy the railway at the open days held throughout the year.


Benefits of Club membership include:
