About our team

Team MST de Maaslijn

We are old acquaintances in the model railway world: MST de Maaslijn. The team members come from the region where the provinces of Gelderland, Noord Brabant, Limburg and North Rhine-Westphalia (D) meet, with Nijmegen and Kleve (D) as the largest cities. We build attractive transportable model railway systems. Most team members have over 30 years of experience with it. Our network in the model railway world is large and we have a good reputation. Our club home and workshop can be found south of Nijmegen NL. These rooms are provided by a company. Work is done here on different days of the week. On the weekly club evening there is space for relaxation, but also for hobbies, such as the digitization of locomotives. We are a member of the NMF (Nederlandse Modelspoor Federatie).

Since 1985, layouts from our members have been on display at national and international exhibitions. In 1991 it first went abroad to Hoeseltse Club, which organized Euromodelbouw in Genk (B). Followed by numerous exhibitions in Germany, France, Denmark, Norway and of course the Netherlands.

But we also go to trade fairs and exhibitions of friendly associations and organizations. And follow the developments in the matter of model railways. Our activities also include visiting museum railways, where you can often still find steam.

If you feel addressed, please contact us. We will then get in touch with you and invite you to our clubhouse or the adjoining hobby room/workshop south of Nijmegen.
