Welcome to LittleLEC - A Fun Competition for Drivers of Small Model Steam Locomotives

LittleLec_061

LittleLEC is an annual locomotive efficiency competition for drivers of small locomotives weighing less than 50lb dry. These are much more challenging to drive than larger ones, and so this competition was devised by Peter Langridge some 10 years ago to enable owners of small locomotives to take part in an IMLEC style efficiency competition.

The competition is usually held in June at a different Model Engineering Society's track each year, up, down, and across the country to allow a different set of locomotive owners to take part without having to travel great distances. This various tabs on this Home Page will take you to a comprehensive set of information about the history of the competition, its nature, and the efficiency calculations. The organisers would like to encourage owners of small locomotives to take up the challenge of entering this event.

For 2018, the LittleLEC organisers are pleased to announce that the Worthing and District Society of Model Engineers will be hosting the competition over the weekend of 16th and 17th June 2018 at the Society’s track in Worthing which can accommodate 2½, 3½, and 5 inch gauge locomotives. More details about this year's competition can be found here http://www.littlelec.co.uk/home/this-years-host  and an entry form can also be downloaded there.
