ABOUT US

We are a group of model engineers that meet at our workshops, steaming facilities and running track within the landscaped grounds of the Rugeley Power Station in Staffordshire. Our Society has been established for 46 years having been formed in 1971 when it was originally located In Cannock Park before the Society relocated to the  Rugeley Power Station and construction work on the new track was completed in August 1991.   Since then thanks to the work carried out by dedicated members our track and facilities were continuously upgraded and improved.  The main interest represented by our Society is the steam and diesel outline railway locomotive and steam traction engine, although our members interests also include stationary engines, rolling stock,  and other model engineering projects. 

The Rugeley Power Station is being decommissioned.  Our railway is located within the power station grounds . .   and in September 2017 our society was asked to vacate our site and was no longer able to operate our miniature railway or have access to our workshop, clubhouse,  and other facilities.   From 2017 our members enjoyed visits to other model engineering societies, and continued to meet regularly until February 2020 when Covid 19 arrived.

However . . . the management of Rugeley Power Station have now granted us  a License to allow our members (but not visitors for the time being) access to our site so that we can operate our railway again.  Members have been involved with bringing the site back to a satisfactory condition and general maintenance using strict social distancing disciplines and special 'Covid - 19' rules.  Running days on our track recommenced in May 2021.  Members should visit our 'PROGRAMME' page for up to date information.
