South Cheshire Model Engineering Society held their annual open day on Saturday 5th September 2015.  

This free event took place on their premises at the rear of the Peacock Hotel, Crewe Road, Willaston CW5 6NE.  

There were miniature-gauge steam and electric train rides, a demonstration of equipment used by the hobby engineer of yesteryear by Mike Smith in 'Mike's Shed', Les Riley rode his McLaren road locomotive and the Clubhouse contained a display of locomotives and engines produced by Society members. 

Refreshments were served by Society volunteers in the Clubhouse, with further refreshments available outside from the Wilson House Scouts

The event was enjoyed by hundreds of visitors who were treated to warm and sunny weather all day. 

The Society currently has over eighty members and meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 7.45pm in their Clubhouse. For further information relating to the Society please visit:
