History of RMR

Ivan Hewlett is our current chairman and the founder of RMR.

Ivan had been interested in railways from a young age & joined the East herts Miniature Railway in Ware in 1978. Many years later after moving to St Neots Ivan realised that a miniature railway could be an attractive addition to the town. In 2014 Ivan presented his ‘vision’ to Huntingdon District Council, which culminated in HDC offering the use of our current site. In April 2016 Ivan started to publicise plans for RMR and as a result a team of people was formed which led to the birth of Riverside Miniature Railway Club, Planning permission was received on 3rd November 2016, and the rest as they say is history……….
