Home of Summerfields’ Miniature Railways – A Great Family Day Out

Hello and thank you for visiting the Bedford Model Engineering Society web site. Whether you are an existing member of the Society, an enthusiast for mechanical transport and engineering, a member of the public looking for information on the next running day for the railways, or even if you just came upon the site by accident, BMES hopes that you will find your visit interesting.

Summerfields' Miniature Railways - A Brief Encounter

Introducing Bedford MES

Bedford MES is a group of like-minded people who are interested in engineering in miniature, from transport by road, rail, air and sea, as well as tools and machinery – in fact anything that falls within the broad boundaries of engineering.

The Society’s base is at the Summerfields’ Miniature Railways system, which is located approximately half-way between Hitchin in Hertfordshire and Bedford. The railways (there are three track systems at the Summerfields’ site) are a popular visitor destination for children and parents alike. Please check the Events Calendar to learn when public running days are scheduled.

You should be able to navigate this site without difficulty and find all of the information that you need. Who knows, you may even learn something from your exploration today.
