Bridlington (Area) Railway Modellers and Train Enthusiasts Society


BARMATES was formed in 2007 to promote and generate interest in all aspects of railways. The Society caters for all those who construct layouts and build rolling stock, to those with an interest in full size railways be it photographing or reading or collecting memorabilia, whether it is historical or modern. If you have an interest in railways and live in the Bridlington area then come along to our meetings.


Members who are interested in modelling come along to our clubroom/workshop on Bridlington Railway Station at 7pm on Tuesday evenings. (Some members also attend on Thursday afternoons.)

BARMATES has several experienced modellers amongst its members. Some have exhibited layouts at shows around the country. Some have had layouts featured in national railway magazines.
Some members have come along to learn how to build layouts whilst others have a genuine interest in railways and transport either because they used to work on the railways or they are volunteers for  preserved railways
Other members work on the Society layouts and most of them have layouts at home. Some are in lofts whilst others are in sheds and/or garages

Pictures will appear on the layouts page as the website is developed.


Once a month on the second Tuesday the Society holds a social evening. The event takes place at the Black Lion, High Street, Old Town, Bridlington. The activities include:- talks, videos, guest speakers,who come along and share their knowledge and experiences with us. The Society also arranges outings to model railway shows and places of railway interest.
