Running Days

      Sunday's from 1pm to 4pm.  Train rides $2.

Club members (who are all volunteers) endeavor to run model trains at our site in the Halswell Domain on Sunday afternoons from 1pm to 4pm throughout the year - subject to weather.

There are now two ways in.  Use the car park off William Brittan Drive or follow the signs at the main entrance to the domain - off Halswell Road

Special Boat Sailing days are held the 2nd Sunday of each month.  Traction engines and other models will be operated from time to time.

Whilst every effort will be made to ensure that trains and other services run as advertised, CSMEE reserves the right to cancel any service without notice and no liability for any loss will be accepted by CSMEE.
