The club aims to promote interest in model engineering in Southport and the local area. This includes building and running model locomotives, traction engines, stationary engines and hot air engines.

We have a clubroom and two tracks of 3.5 and 5 inch gauge.

We also have an extensive 45mm Gauge 1 line and a 32mm garden railway.

We are based in Victoria Park, Southport at the Liverpool end of Rotten Row, right next to the boating pond.

As well as railways in several gauges, we have extensive well-kept grounds, which add to the ambience of the site.

We have talks and other activities on Wednesday nights, and running sessions on Sundays.




We always like to meet visitors and potential new members - come and see us!
