Basingstoke and District Model Engineering
Society was founded by a small group of people
over 30 years ago who enjoyed building, running
and maintaining model machinery and engines. They
established a model engineering club at the
Viables Craft Centre in Basingstoke and built
track and road facilities for model locomotives
and traction engines to run on. However, all
aspects of the model engineering hobby are
practised and supported by the society.
founding, interest and membership has grown.
The club and its facilities, still
based on the original site, have flourished.
They now offer a 1000 foot long
passenger-carrying railway complete with station
and tunnel and a scenic traction engine track.
The club continues to provide friendly
support and fellowship for its members to develop
and pursue their interests in model engineering
and thus make their contribution to the
preservation of key aspects of Britain's
industrial history in miniature.
