Keighley and District Model Engineering Society has a membership whose common interest is the making and running of working models. There are a variety of interests but the main interests are yachts, trains and boats. The skippers have access to Weecher Reservoir on Bingley Moor to sail their craft, and the enginemen have a railway track at Marley Sports ground in Keighley. Boats are sailed on Redcar Tarn between Keighley and Whitley Head.
Behind the football pitches at Marley Sports ground the KDMES members have built a railway track of approximately 400m. To make it easier to drive the engines the track is raised off the ground and specially built coaches enable passengers to sit astride the track. During the summer months there are Public open days in the afternoon. Generally the third Sunday in the month, when children and adults are able to ride behind the steam and electric locomotives. We also hire privately for special events like birthday parties.
