The Scottish Model Engineering Trust(SMET) has been established for a number of years and is based at our own site at Wester Pickston about 3 miles out of Methven in Perthshire, Scotland. In April 2019 we were joined by the Perth and District Model Railway Club to become a centre of model railway excellence now known as the Wester Pickston Railway Centre.
The trust is unique in Scotland having miniature railways in scales from N gauge up to 7 1/4 inches and miniature road vehicles of various sizes. We are passionate about our hobby and want to encourage the next generation into this rewarding pastime. Whether you are 8 or 80 you are very welcome.
We have had to curtail our public activities for the last couple of years in accordance with the restrictions imposed by the Global pandemic. However our membership has remained active and has continued to enhance our site during this difficult time. We are hoping 2022 will let us open our doors to the public again and once more welcome back the hundreds of visitors we used to greet on our Public Open Days.
The website has 4 main sections – Wester Pickston Railway(WPR), Miniature Road Vehicles(MRV), Perth and District Model Railway Group(PMRG) and Perth Model Railway Show.
Select one of the buttons below to find out more information on what interests you. Each section has a contact page where you can send a message to a SMET member with an interest in that category. They will reply to your queries.
