running The Bath & West Steam Railway
The club exists to provide members with an environment in which they can pursue their interests in model engineering. Additionally we also support the B&W Society at show ground events providing an opportunity for the public to ride on and enjoy the results of our labours. As a registered charity we additionally aim to provide opportunities for the education & participation of the local community, school and disadvantaged children in our hobby.
We are governed by our Memorandum of Association.
All of which means we get together, build things and love talking about them; so we built and now run a model railway!
