Operating Every Sunday of the month.

The Hamilton Model Engineers are open every Sunday of the month, providing train rides for the public around our tracks at Minogue Park.

We run weather permitting from 10:30am - 3:00pm (with a volunteer lunch break from 12:00pm to 12:30pm).

With over an acre of park area, on-site parking and areas for picnics and seating, a trip to our track is a family-friendly event, no matter ones age or interests.


Every individual who travels on our trains is counted as One Fare. Tickets are available to purchase from the Ticket Office on the day. Tickets do not expire, and can be used at anytime.

*Please note, that children under the age of 2 ride for free, but they must be accompanied by a fare-paying passenger.

Ticket options are as follows:

  • Single Fare - $3

  • 10 Fares (Concession Ticket) - $20 (Best Value!)

  • 60 Fare (Party Pack) - $80

We accept Cash & EFTPOS only, no credit cards taken. All funds from our running days, events and donations go directly towards our facilities and railway. Not one HME member has been, or will be paid. Our volunteers aren't paid, not because they're useless, but because they are priceless!
