Welcome to the City of Newport Model Engineering Society website

The Society has a 5 acre site at the Glebelands Park (what3words = economies.crest.dive) which is continuously being developed and extended to run our 5” and 7 1/4” dual-gauge track miniature railway. We are in the process of building a signal box, ticket office and engine shed. The engines run out of the station and join the main circuit which takes you around the perimeter of the site. 

The members all have different interests and expertise including general engineering, electronic engineering, building, mowing and general landscaping. 

The Society meets on a Saturday to continue with the ongoing projects and on a Wednesday evening to have other engineering discussions.

The Society opens the site to the public to enjoy rides on our steam and electric trains, please view our Events section to see when or visit us on Facebook at Glebelands Miniature Railway. When visiting our site please be aware it is a working site, please supervise your children at all times.

If you would like more information about the Society make yourself know to a club member on our Open Day as we always happy to welcome new members. Below are links to our application forms.
