Outline Development Plan




  • To create a welcoming and safe environment where all members of the community, including minority ethnic groups and those with disabilities, can enjoy rides on the trains


  • To educate children & their families about our industrial heritage, particularly our railways and heavy industries.


  • To support fund raising & other activities in Exhibition Park


  • To encourage all types of model engineering and the manufacturing skills that are needed to manufacture models both from the past and present.


Over the next 5 years the club wishes to build on the work already completed in the past 5 years successes include the new clubhouse & workshop facilities, new fencing, improved access.  


  • Develop a group for junior engineers


  • Improve the safety of passenger hauling with the addition of air brakes and a guard truck


  • Build a shelter for the stationmaster


  • Consider further storage options as necessary


  • Build a patio area outside the new clubhouse


  • Add a retractable canopy over the patio


  • Landscape site of old buildings


  • Encourage use of lake for model boating, host an annual ‘regatta’ including visiting clubs


  • Develop the workshop facilities


  • Develop a 16mm layout


  • Develop a series of visits, talks and events for members


  • As the club grows, ensure good communication through a published calendar of events and occasional open meetings.
