Wednesday Working Party

Members meet every Wednesday morning to maintain the site.  Help is always required from gardening, painting, general maintenance as well as a continuous repair programme for the track.  Come along and help and enjoy the companionship and friendly banter!


If you are interested in Model Engineering then why not become a member of the Kinver & West Midlands Society of Model Engineers

Friday Evenings / Sunday Mornings

Members meet on Friday evenings and Sunday Mornings to socialise and discuss all things model engineering - during the winter months occasional talks have been arranged on model engineering topics.

Boiler testing is usually undertaken on Sundays.

Public Running

Our members run steam engines and diesel (electric) engines every Sunday - Easter to end of October - to haul passenger trains for the public. Not only can you enjoy a lovely train ride in some beautiful countryside but also you are welcome to use our picnic area.  The Whistle Stop also serves refreshments and snacks.

You can find all the details at our dedicated  website Kinver Miniature Railway.
