Welcome to HSME. We are a non-profit organisation that, with the help of our members, is trying to bring together Model Engineers in Huddersfield.
This is HSME's home on the web. What we are about? We are a group of people who enjoy the world of Model Engineering from building to just playing with models.
There are four areas to the Society, Scale Model Boating, Ride on Railways, Remote Controlled Trucks, 4x4 Rock Crawlers & "G" Gauge 45mm Railways.
We have a purpose built boating lake which is based at our Highfields HQ and a High Level railway track to take 3 1/2", 5", 7 1/4" locomotives. The loop is 440ft around the site with a station and tunnel. A road system for RC Trucks and a 4x4 Rock Crawler area complete with various skill testing obstacles. We have three Loops with sidings for the G Scale Railways with plans to extend the area for the 2018 season.
Our Highfields site has parking, toilets on site catering and workshop facilities available 24 x 7 to our membership. Whats more our membership fee works out at only £2.50 per month!
We also have a purpose built railway located at Greenhead Park. This is a ground level track and takes 7 1/4" locomotives. This operation was founded to provide income and a high level of enjoyment for our fee paying passengers.
We believe we offer one of the best packages available for miles around so why not pop down and see us any Saturday between 11am & 2pm to check it out for yourself.
Membership of the Society is only £30 per annum and once a member you have access to the Society HQ 24 x 7 365 days a year as well as being able to help out in Greenhead Park where you can just help out or Guard or Drive the Locomotives.
Thinking of Joining pop in to Highfields any Saturday between 11am & 2pm for a look around and a cup of tea
