You are cordially invited to attend the 2018 NIGGLES Rally to be held on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd June at the Derby Society of Model & Experimental Engineers. This event is generally limited to NAME
or Sfed Members only – but non-affiliated Members are welcome to attend subject to the acceptance of appropriate insurance and boiler certification.
The event is open to narrow gauge profile railway locomotives only.
The track is a combined 31/2” and 5” ground level only layout with many interesting features (there are no 7 1/4” gauge facilities).

The circuit is approximately 1600ft long with some route options.


Due to the use of numerous points, it is essential that the ME standard wheel back-to-back dimension of 411/16” is observed, although a minimum of 45/8” is generally tolerable. The DSMEE track is located near Morley Hayes, Derbyshire.


The event will be informal – though the following itinerary is planned:

Friday 1st: Optional additional afternoon running till late. Fish & Chip supper (or similar)

Saturday 2nd: Morning start until late. Pie & Peas supper (or similar)

Sunday 3rd: Morning start until late afternoon.

Tea & coffee will be available throughout each day.
Breakfast & lunch cobs will be available for a nominal charge.

The track and site are not generally open to the public, and running during this event will be limited, therefore, to known attendees. Further details, together with an application form

(to establish numbers for running and catering purposes) are now available

A limited number of caravan or motor home spaces
will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.
