Club & Track Details

The Society operates a miniature railway in the grounds of a Private House near Edinburgh. This gives members the opportunity to run their model locomotives and haul passengers. The track totals over half a mile in length and can accommodate the three standard gauges used across most of the world, these being 3.5 inch, 5 inch and 7.25 inch gauge. The Society owns four locomotives that enable members without their own to learn the skills of operating a real 'live steam' locomotive. The current membership is 76 and is in the process of developing a 11.5 acre new site with 2.5km of track all gauges. The Society provides facilities and training where needed to enable members to become competent in the skills of machine turning and milling of metal and engineering materials, the use of hand tools, fitting, brazing, soldering and welding, pattern making and casting, and interpretation of engineering drawings. The society operates its own workshop and owns several machine tools including lathes, a milling machine, pillar drills and other power tools. These are available for the use of all members.
