The Society was formed in 1971 to bring together people interested in model engineering in Stafford  and  the surrounding area. We are a small friendly society with around 100 members of all ages whose interests span the full range of model engineering activities, with emphasis on live steam locomotives.

Our track site here has a raised track for 2 ½”, 3 ½” and 5” gauge locomotives and a ground level track for 5” and 7 ¼” gauge, complete with loading ramp, turntable, locomotive and carriage sidings. Staffordshire has many connections with narrow gauge railways and the growing popularity of modelling these in 16mm/ft scale has been recognised and a garden railway with 32mm (0 gauge) track has been constructed.

Our latest addition to the site is a gauge 1 garden railway with 45mm track together with a boating pond. This means that we can now accommodate locomotive of all gauges.

Membership application forms can be downloaded from the membership page or obtained from the Membership Secretary, 3 Millbridge Close Meir Park Stoke on Trent ST3 7US. Members can be found on site on Thursday and Sunday mornings all year. In the summer months we meet on the 3rd Sunday for club steaming, please refer to the diary page for more details.

Visitors are welcome at our running sessions and evening meetings. Boiler certificates are required for any visitor wishing to run a locomotive. This applies to all gauges. We are always on the lookout for new members, please come and visit us, you will be made most welcome.
