Canvey Railway and Model Engineering Club - Home page
Welcome to the Canvey Railway and Model Engineering Club. We are a self-funded model engineering club that has a wide diversity of engineering skill sets within its current membership. The club was initially set up in the 1970s, at which time we did not have a railway. However, as many of our members were building locomotives it made sense to construct a small piece of track. In the last 50 years this small piece of track has grown in length and we now have 7 1/4 inch gauge, 5 inch gauge and 3 1/2 inch gauge tracks; plus many of our members have smaller gauges at home. Our site is approximately eighty metres wide by one hundred and eighty metres in length and is easily accessible by car, bus or train.
At certain times of the year we open our railway to the general public and several times a year, our members give their time freely to help other clubs who support the disadvantaged, and people with special needs, within the community.
We are the Canvey Railway and Model Engineering Club.
