Official Opening with Blacktown City Mayor, NWME President and State Labor MP.
Passenger cars ready and waiting
With the community in mind the North Western Model Engineers Inc. has started building a miniature railway that is family oriented and inclusive for all. We have now completed stage 1, which is a 105 metre loop plus a level crossing leading to our northern extension.
Our opening day was held on 17th November 2019, and was well attended by members of the public who eagerly awaited their turn on the trains. Members of Blacktown City Council, the state MP for Labour, and representatives from some of our supporting businesses also attended.
The NWME have been working hard to raise the necessary funds required to begin building the railway through various means. Due to this hard work we now have a number of the key assets waiting in storage, but there is still a way to go.
Construction well under way
