We meet on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

Evenings feature talks on railways and model making, project nights when members show their current work, ‘you can do it’ demonstrations and film shows.

Weather permitting, Sundays are spent operating the railways and giving rides to visitors to Victoria Park.

Members free on Wednesdays meet during the day and work on projects and grounds maintenance. There is usually also running activity on the garden railway.

We welcome new members of any age - visit us on any Wednesday or Sunday afternoon, come along to one of our evening meetings or
contact our Secretary.

You don’t have to be an engineer, just have an interest in modelling, in running a miniature railway or in our industrial heritage.

We can guarantee a friendly welcome and help in broadening your knowledge and interest in a wide range of
subjects.
