The Welsh Rally held by the Cardiff Model Engineering Society.

June 18 @ 9:00 am - June 19 @ 5:00 pm

Amongst the events in June 2022, which of course include HM The Queen’s Jubilee, there will be the welcome return of a full weekend for the Welsh Rally held by the Cardiff Model Engineering Society. Their site has a raised level 3½ and 5-inch track and 7¼-inch ground level running lines. To avoid an unnecessary clash of dates the rally, the Society’s 30th, will be held over the weekend of Saturday/Sunday 18/19th June. It’s been a long two years since the last full rally and there have been some significant changes on the site including a longer run on the 7¼ -inch ground level track with an additional running line. New signalling gantries have been erected throughout. The ever popular tram line has been redesigned moving the station to a passing loop at the centre. The Rally has been a popular event for many years with visitors from far and wide often bringing around 30 locomotives and half a dozen scale traction engines creating a fascinating and busy scene. Polly Models and Keatley Metals will also be on hand. As usual there will be a limited number of pre-booked caravan spaces on the site. Book via the secretary’s address – [email protected]  The hog roast is planned for the early evening on Saturday. The Society is again looking forward to welcoming enthusiasts whether running engines or coming to view. Information about the Society can be found on their web pages www.cardiffmes.co.uk and www.facebook.com/Cardiffmes.
