Carlisle & District Model Engineering Society




5 Months

Doing it right

Story Contracting and Story Homes worked together  to assist local club, Carlisle and District Model Engineering Society (CADMES), to refurbish its model railway facilities in Hammonds Pond park.

Renovation works included:

  • Creation of 6 new train carriages with additional support from PMS
  • Renovation works to the plinths and railway
  • Re-cladding on the club building to minimise fire risk
  • Provision of newly branded signage and uniforms

300 children
celebrated the re-opening of the railway

6 new carriages
designed & created for the mini locomotives

10 new uniforms
to enhance the railway experience

We're absolutely bowled over by the support from Story. We're a group of volunteers, mainly retired engineers, so while we have the best intentions - there is only so much we could achieve, and it's completely transformed! We love the new signs and uniforms, they really add to the experience for the children. The railway and new carriages are fantastic. We've had a great day; it's so nice to see the community come together. I'm not sure who had more fun today, us, or the children!
