Members meet throughout the year on Sundays and Wednesdays at the club house and track, located in Exhibition Park, near the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne,
our base for many years. The club has an enthusiastic membership who are committed to developing all aspects of the society.
The latest addition to our resources is a ground level track catering for 5" and 7 1/4" locomotives. A transverser helps the safe movement of engines from
vehicles to the steaming bays. Signals and points operate to ensure safe running on the main line as well as the station loop.
The raised track offers 5" and 3 1/2" gauge facilities and the park roads are ideal for the operation of traction engines.
All are invited to try our amenities at any time where visitors will receive a warm welcome.
The track is just a few minutes walk from Newcastle City Centre, where other members of the family will find plenty of appealing diversions away from model engineering!
Member’s interests cover all aspects of model engineering, from road and rail engines and rolling stock to workshop equipment and clocks.
New members and visitors are most welcome, please contact the secretary for further information,
but be assured you will receive a warm Tyneside welcome!
Membership Fees for 2017: Single Membership £35; Family Membership - £45.
