A CLUB is celebrating after completing work to transform its new home.
The Huddersfield Railway Modellers will mark the occasion with an open weekend this Saturday and Sunday at Stonefield Mills in Tanyard Road, Milnsbridge.
The club previously met for 20 years at Moor Road Mills in Meltham but last year the possibility of the building being redeveloped was announced.
Members agreed to search for a new home and in February, they found the Milnsbridge site and moved in this March.
Every member of the club has worked to transform the rundown 4,000sq ft first-floor premises, creating a lounge, kitchen and library as well as space for the railway models.
There is nearly double the space they had at Meltham which means all the club's extensive layouts can be put on one floor. At Meltham they were on three floors.
Club spokesman Geoff Munday said: "We had a wonderful 20 years at Meltham but one of the bonuses of the new place is that now we have space for more members.
"Part of the purpose of the open weekend is to let people know that."
The club already has 30 members.
The official opening will take place on Saturday.
Mark Found, editor of magazine The Railway Monthly, will perform the opening ceremony.
The club's 16mm live steam layout circuit - the Nant Mawr Light Railway - is to be featured in the magazine.
Special guests will include Colne Valley Labour MP Kali Mountford. After the opening, people will be able to look round from 2pm to 5pm, and again from 11am to 5pm on Sunday.
Admission is free.
