The Railway at the Peterson, Peterson Road, Panmure is open to the public every Sunday afternoon from 1-4pm, weather permitting.
Retired, practicing and aspiring engineers welcome to our monthly 7:30pm meeting in clubrooms on the first Tuesday of each month.
Generations of Aucklanders have brought their children to the track for a spectacular ride. Operated on a voluntary basis by the members of the ASME. club.
On many Sunday afternoons you will find two club locomotives and sometimes live steam locomotives pulling passenger trains around the extensively landscaped and interesting track.
The journey starts and finishes at the station building "Waipuna Junction" and during the ride the train travels the cleverly designed track that gives the illusion of going on a long journey.
The train passes through tunnels, over bridges along a raised trestle section. Something to look out for is the large boat pond operated by the Scale Marine Modelers club.
We aim to provide you a friendly, sociable environment, offering the opportunity to learn new skills. Gain the support of other members and undertake the art of ‘Model Engineering’.
We're a cross section of society – you don't have to be a professional engineer or expert to be a member!
Members of the ASME get train driving lessons and benefit from free rides for themselves and their families. You're also supported and encouraged to use the track for your own projects.
You'll also benefit from members nights, workshop tours and encouragement.
