South Devon Miniature Railway

A 7¼ Inch Gauge railway set in the gardens at Buckfastleigh Station, on the South Devon Railway.
We have two routes that we operate at the current time and both are about half a mile.
The journey time dependant on the loco heading the train is around 6 to 8 minutes and runs along the edge of the River Dart taking in views of the gardens of the South Devon Railways as well as picnic area’s, engine sheds and other parts of the railway that not all the visitors get to see.

North Staffs Model Engineering Society

The Society was formed in 1936 when a group of like-minded people came together to share, exchange and develop knowledge and skills associated with the world of engineering in miniature. The Society is a local organisation that exists to demonstrate craftsmanship in making and operating objects that work and give pleasure. However, through national associations, there are links to model engineers all over the world.
The areas that interest the current membership, who come from all walks of life, include building and operating live steam and other railway engines, steam road vehicles such as traction engines and rollers. Also included are clocks, stationary steam engines such as those that powered industry in the past, model internal combustion engines and the making of tools to help in the home workshop.

Huddersfield Society of Model Engineers

We are a group of people who enjoy the world of engineering from building to just playing with models. There are three areas to the society, boating and trains and just recently added remote control truck. We have a purpose built boating lake which is based at Highfields and a high level railway track to take 3 1/2″ 5″ 7 1/4″ locomotives the loop is 440ft and goes over the water and in a tunnel . We also have a purpose built railway located at Greenhead Park. this is ground level and it takes 5″ and 71/4″ locomotives . This can be found on post code setting for sat nav HD1 5NG

Fenland Light Railway

The Fenland Light Railway was first established over 20 years ago from members of the Ramsey Miniature Steam Railway Society. The present membership of around 25 souls of varying backgrounds enjoy a friendly and sociable atmosphere whenever we meet.
Our present available engines range from an ever reliable Romulus, a petrol 0-4-0 and 2 electric loco’s. The rolling stock consists of a pair of sit in coaches, some sit-astrides and a variety of permanent way wagons.
We operate on an oval of track of approx. 300 yards long the majority of which is at sea level but dips below mean sea level in a few places. This is probably unique in the United Kingdom except if you visit a mine.

Norwest Engineering – Cumbria

Norwest Engineering is a leading specialist in laser cutting and waterjet services in the UK. We also manufacture precision fabricated, machined components and assemblies to customer specifications utilising the latest CNC machines. Waterjet cutting is a fast growing machine tool process, due to its versatility and capability to cut most types of materials, manufacturers are realizing that there are virtually no limits to what waterjets are capable of cutting. Major benefits of waterjet cutting include; no heat generated structural changes, cold cutting process, virtually burr free cut edges, reduces finishing operations and no material distortion or discolouration.

Laser Frames

We can offer you a full package of products to help you achieve a completed project in less time and to a better standard.
Laser cutting can be from our stock of standard components or adaptations of these components to suit your particular design requirement. Alternatively we can produce cut and folded items from your drawings.
Your items can be cut from our library of items, your CAD drawings or your drawings and sketches that we will turn into CAD drawings, the choice is yours – if you can draw it we can cut it.

Ipswich Model Engineering Society

IMES was founded in March 1945 and now has a healthy membership with a wide age span and varied engineering interests. It is an independent body with an annually elected committee, and is an associate member of the Southern Federation of Model Engineering societies.

The society’s clubhouse is located at 547 Foxhall Road (behind residential premises 543 and 545 Foxhall Road). Also located at this site is 350 foot continuous track for 3.5 inch and 5 inch guages.

The society meets every Tuesday evening between 7pm and 9pm in the clubhouse. This is an opportunity to meet other likeminded people interested in all aspects of model engineering. The club holds within its members a vast array of knowledge enabling experienced and inexperienced alike to share skills and information. Tuesday evening club night offers a chance to speak with other members in an informal atmosphere. The club also arranges informal ‘workshops’ where small groups can receive training in specialised subjects.

Hereford Society of Model Engineers

The society was started in Hereford in 1962, with the aim of building a miniature railway. The society has grown over the years and now has its own multi-purpose site at Broomy Hill, catering for all forms of model engineering.

All popular gauges of model locomotives are catered for with both a raised and a ground level track. Members enjoy regular working parties, twice-monthly meetings and a quarterly magazine

Situated adjacent to the Waterworks Museum, a visit to Broomy Hill on one of our “Public Running Days”, makes for an enjoyable day for all the family. There is plenty of space for parking (it’s free too) and pleasant surroundings to enjoy a picnic.

Vale of Aylesbury Model Engineering Society

Vale of Aylesbury Model Engineering Society invites you to visit its site situated between Bicester and Aylesbury just off the A41 at Quainton. We share the site with Buckinghamshire Railway Museum and one entrance fee gives you access to both venues. Whilst the railway museum restores and operates full size railway stock VAMES concentrates its efforts on scale models.

Visit and be amazed at the skill of our members to design and construct working models of yesteryear.
