We are a group of model engineering
enthusiasts that meet at our clubhouse and grounds in Burton-upon-Trent,
Staffordshire. Our Society was founded in 1947 and has celebrated its

and facilities have been continuously developed and expanded.
The main interest represented within the Society is the steam railway
locomotive, although members interests cover the full spectrum of model
Our facilities provide the following track work :- A raised
level track of 800 feet, for 3 1/2 and 5 inch gauges. The minimum
radius of curves is 42 feet. The ground level track is suitable for 5
inch. and 7 1/4 inch gauges with associated point work, a turntable, and
both tracks have access points with hydraulic lifts. The raised level and
ground level tracks have their own steaming bays. We also have a portable
track which is available for use at garden fetes and other public events.
Other facilities include a clubhouse with a meeting room and kitchen, and
our grounds have extensive car parking. Regular 'Steam Ups' are held
during the year, and our members enjoy visits to other Midlands based club
tracks. New projects are being considered to further improve the
site and facilities available to members and visiting societies.
We are always looking to attract new members, so if you are interested in
