Taunton Model Engineers
Somerset Railway Modellers Club are very pleased to welcome Taunton Society of Model Engineers who will be bringing some live steam scale models to show model engineering at its best.

Taunton Model Engineers has been in existence for 75 years, and finally have purchased our own site four years ago, at West Buckland. We encourage an interest in engineering both model and general that covers railways, traction engines stationary engines workshop equipment and boats, in various scales. On our site at West Buckland we are building a mixed gauge raised track to include 2.5, 3.5 and 5.0 inch. There is also a ground level track offering 5.0, and 7.25 inch gauge. Alongside this there is a Clubhouse offering future workshop facilities a Meeting Room with a kitchen and toilets. There is still much to do to complete all of this work, contributions and volunteers are always very welcome.

G Scale Society
G Scale Society -- Somerset group.
G scale models metre gauge narrow gauge prototypes on LGB track, usually found in gardens this large scale modelling. The Somerset Group was founded over two years ago and usually meets at members garden railways and aims to show the various sizes and styles of members layouts.
G Scale Society
The EM Gauge Society
Four millimetres to the foot (4mm/ft.) is the most popular scale for railway modelling in the UK but it isn’t often realised the OO models offered by Hornby & Bachmann etc. in fact run on ‘narrow gauge’ track! The anomaly dates back to the 1920s when manufacturers attempted to fit the then popular German HO (3.5mm/ft) mechanisms into the smaller British prototype locomotives. The society is on hand to guide you throught the process of making your models run on the correct spacing for the body size, the south west area group will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about this process

009 Society
We aim to cater for all aspects of small scale narrow gauge railway modelling, both for the beginner and the experienced modeller alike, for the scratch-builder, the kit builder and the modeller who prefers proprietary ready to run equipment. Whether you are an active modeller or an armchair modeller, you will find a welcome in the 009 SOCIETY.

CLevedon And PortisHead Armchair Modellers
John & Paul perform ‘demonstrations’ around the theme of ‘Modern Modelling’ and have been regulars at both the Warley NEC and Model Rail Scotland shows. The ‘demonstrations’, usually supported by a micro layout and examples of current projects, are unlike traditional demonstrations; instead being more akin to an online forum, encouraging members of the public to sit down and discuss any aspects of modern modelling. Presentation projects include diesel detailing, coaching stock, wagon building, figure painting and building construction.

Tramway and Light Railway Society
The Tramway and Light Railway Society - West of England Group take great pleasure in presenting: The EDWARDIAN TRAMWAY. A street scene based on the Tramways Centre in Bristol with period tramcars. A selection of electrically worked models from Bath, Bournemouth, Bristol, Croydon, Exeter , Poole, Taunton, and Weston super Mare, plus a remotely controlled car from Karachi and a spectacular horse drawn ambulance car.
