We are a group of model engineers that meet at our workshops, steaming facilities and running track within the landscaped grounds of what used to be Rugeley Power Station in Staffordshire. Our Society has been established for 52 years having been formed in 1971.   Construction work on a new track was completed in August 1991.   Since then thanks to the work carried out by dedicated members our track and facilities have been 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. 

Over the last 35 years our Rugeley Miniature Railway * has given countless hours of pleasure to the local community, visiting societies, and members. Our society is recognised as having one of the best multi-gauge ride-on raised level miniature railway tracks in the UK.

Following the granting of access to our facilities by the site owners in 2021, members have been involved with installing a new electronic signalling system as well as bringing the site back to a satisfactory condition, general maintenance, and replacing equipment.   Running days have recommenced.   Please visit our 'PROGRAMME' page for up to date information.  The Rugeley Power Station has now been demolished and the area is being redeveloped.  As we are located within a secure area,  for the time being visitors can only allowed on site by prior arrangement.
