The FMES Rally and Australian Association of Live Steamers Trophy 2022

September 3

We are very pleased to announce that this year’s rally will be held at Sutton Coldfield MES on Saturday, 3rd September 2022, between 9.00am and 5pm. SCMES has an attractive facility in the countryside at Little Hay near Lichfield with 5” and 7¼” ground level track; 2½”, 3½” and 5” raised track and an extensive SM32 layout. The rally will also feature the annual AALS Trophy, awarded to the best ‘all round’ steam locomotive between 2½” and 7¼” that is a model of a real ‘commonwealth’ built locomotive. The judges will consider all aspects of the locomotive including running, and the winner will be awarded the trophy at 4pm on the Saturday. Although not part of the AALS competition, the SM 32 track will also be open for those wishing to experience it.
SCMES is also opening their facilities on Sunday 4th September to give more opportunity to enjoy the track and further details of this, the location, places to stay and other information can be found on the website: www.scmes.co.uk/rally.
It would be helpful to SCMES if you could advise them as requested on their website of your intentions to attend, stay over and so on for catering and planning reasons. They can be emailed at [email protected]
We hope to see you there, either driving a loco, or just visiting: it is a great opportunity to meet other model engineers in a convivial informal atmosphere!
