Visiting Model Engineers

We warmly welcome Visiting Model Engineers from other model engineering clubs to the Galston Valley Railway (5"), our Gauge One railway, and our traction engine track.

Please check our public day timetable and members' calendar, or contact us if you are planning a special visit.

In particular, we would be very pleased to see you at our Post-Convention Interclub Run, Diesel Day and October Birthday Weekend. Please see the Events page to check for dates and details.

Garden Gauge Railway

Our garden gauge (Gauge One, 45mm) railway is an outdoors elevated layout adjacent to the model traction engine pathway. The height above ground varies from 300mm to 1.2 metres. The layout has two circular main lines, a station with refuge loops, and a freight depot with sidings. The railway has no significant gradients and has an uninterrupted run of about 50 metres on each main line.

The track is not powered and is intended primarily for radio-controlled locomotives permitting simultaneous operation of multiple trains. The surrounding pathway and height variations make it easy to find a convenient spot to load/unload trains.

Please check our Rules and requirements.
