About Vancouver Island Model Engineers

The Vancouver Island Model Engineers, generally known as VIME.

VIME is a club dedicated to Model Engineering in all forms. While many club members have an interest in railways this in not true of all, and many of our members model items such as aircraft, boats, engines of various types, and even clocks. We come from all walks of life and collectively use the club as a way of furthering our interests, skills, projects, and having fun, as well as sharing advice and experience with other members.

VIME operates a miniature railway where the public can enjoy rides on published dates and members can get experience in these operations and the pleasure of seeing others having fun. The dates on which the public may come and ride are shown here – VIME Events.

VIME is located at the Saanich Historical Artifacts Society site known as Heritage Acres, 7321 Lochside Drive, Saanichton. Get directions to VIME here!

SHAS offers facilities to hold both public and private events. You’ll find information about SHAS here. A separate application must be made to both VIME and SHAS for private events.
