Chelmsford Society of Model Engineers - Model Engineering

The CSME promotes the safe construction and operation of passenger carrying steam, electric and diesel hauled trains, traction engines and other scale models.

*Tracks

There are two main railway tracks, each approximately 1300 ft in length, one raised and the other at ground level.

The raised track has three gauges, 31/2 ", 5" and 71/4" and is controlled by 2-aspect signalling.
The ground level track has two gauges, 5" and 71/4" and is controlled by 4-aspect signalling which can operate in either semi-automatic mode with the aid of a signaller, or in fully automatic mode.
Both tracks have a covered canopy for passengers.
Access for locos to either track can normally be made directly from the back of a trailer.
The Club welcomes visits from other societies. Interested parties should contact us initially through this website.

*Facilities

Light refreshments are often available during public running in the on-site Clubhouse. The Clubhouse is used also for monthly meetings when external speakers talk to members on a range of topics. In the middle of each month, members meet to compare notes on current projects.

A well-equipped hobby shop is used for the maintenance of the infrastructure and rolling stock.
