The Cambridge Model Engineering Society welcomes you. The Society enjoys a quiet and peaceful location bordering fields on the south western edge of the city. The M11 is nearby (but not too close!) giving easy access from all directions.

We run ground level steam, electric (and occasionally gas turbine) trains on 7¼in, 5in and 3½in tracks. We hope to have even smaller steam on a new 32mm garden railway in the not too distant future (it's currently a rather large, muddy patch!).

Public running days are every second Sunday from April to October inclusive, from 1:30pm (gates open at 12.30pm) to 5:30pm. Add refreshments from the club house or bring a picnic and you have a great family afternoon out. See you there!

Existing members of the Society are encouraged to register where upon they will have access to the library of (recent) old newsletters.

Waggon or Wagon?

Wagon is the American English spelling of the British English word waggon. The spelling 'wagon' is more widespread than 'waggon'.

What Happens during Winter?

The winter time (and indeed spring) is when the members of Society turn their hands from 'playing' trains to the maintenance of our railway. In reality the maintenance never stops since there's always grass to be mown, weeds to be removed, painting to be done and track to be checked amongst many other things.

During our 'closed' time we have a rolling programme of track replacement during which we replace lengths of track and also work on our other projects such as the new locomotive preparation area.

Engine or Train?

When is an engine a train? Simply put, a train consists of an engine (or locomotive) and some coaches and/or some waggons.
