In line with current government guidelines regarding coronavirus we are suspending all public activities of the KDMES for 2020. We are as disappointed as you are but are taking the opportunity during these uncertain times to make improvements to the track.


Usually, during the winter we do not run trains but take the opportunity to do repairs and improvements. When we realised we were not going to be able to run for some time we decided to do some major improvements to the track during the better summer weather.You can see our activities by following this link to Major Track Upgrade 2020 - 2021.

We look forward to your visit to the KDMES. You will find our railway track at the Marley Activity Centre in Keighley, just off the A650 dual carriageway. We have free parking situated behind the club house. Click here for map/directions.

Station area at Marley Our trains are hauled by electric or real steam locomotives. The engines are capable of hauling adult passengers as well as children on coaches that are designed so that you sit astride the track. This saves the strain on the driver's back.
The railway track is approximately 400m in an oval shape. One journey is usually twice round. There is a viewing area where you can watch the locomotives being prepared and a seating area between the station and the club house. Refreshments are available to purchase in the club house.
Public running suspended until further notice.

When the trains are not running we spend our time repairing the track or doing other jobs around the site. To see what we are up to vist the Winter Working page.

Model stock cars Inside the railway track there is also a circuit for racing model cars and a grass track for model electric buggies. Visitors to the railway track are welcome to cross the line by the footbridge to watch the races. Model Buggies with train
