A group of like minded people interested in all things model engineering, specifically model locomotives, both steam and battery powered, traction engines, stationary engines and specialised workshop equipment.
Primarily railway motive power and rolling stock; some members are building traction engines or stationery engines. Our tracksite, which we own is just under 1 acre in area & features a ground level track and raised track.
2023 marks 100 years since the Flying Scotsman entered service. This Meccano model built by John Thorpe took 2 years to complete. It is 13ft long the carriages have lights and doors with Meccano boys and girls as passengers.
Gas Turbine Builders Association
Our aim is to encourage and support the safe design and operation of small gas turbines, either as stand alone units or for the purpose of powering model vehicles.
The organisation's aims are to encourage interest and participation in building and running scenic gauge ‘3’ model railways, while encouraging friendly co-operation within the membership by means of informal meetings.
Starting in 1962 as Hereford Live Steamers with 6 members paying £1.50 per week subs. Starting in a members garden and progressing to our site in Hereford in 1994 City Council consider us a major attraction.
Our club has a wide range of activities, the most popular of which is currently yachting. There is an active scale section, offshore and one end of the lake is used by a tethered hydro section. I/C and fast electric also operate.
Headquarters building is in South London. Our members’ interests cover all the traditional model engineering topics plus a keen interest in the future of the hobby and a desire to see it expand into new subject areas.
