Welcome to the website of the Worthing and District Society of Model Engineers. Whether you are an existing member of the Society, someone interested in model engineering or a member of the public looking for information on our next running day for the trains, we hope that you will find this site interesting.
The Society is based at Field Place which is located a mile or so to the north of Worthing town centre. There we have an elevated triple gauge (5, 3½, and 2½ inch) railway track of approximately 440 yards length, a clubhouse and workshop.
Rides are provided for the public on the second and fourth Sundays of each month from April to October. Please check the Public Running calendar to find out when public running days are scheduled.
In addition to providing
public rides, throughout the year the club organises other events, such as an Open Day, Charity Day and at Christmas the ever popular Santa Rides. For a couple of weeks during August the club also
hosts courses in model engineering for youngsters aged between 9 and 13. Details of all these events are published on the website as and when they occur.
Our members come from all walks of life and are very willing to pass on their knowledge of engineering and construction. From scratch built models, restoration projects and kit built models there's always help and advice available.
If you are interested in joining us please call into Field Place on one of our meeting evenings or on a Wednesday or Saturday morning. Alternatively you may use our Contact Us section to send an email or download and complete an application form.
Easter Sunday saw the start of Public Running for this year. After some threats earlier in the week the weather smiled on on us and you our supporters and waited until 5 O'clock before clouding over and cooling off a degree or two.
For those who missed it or were unable to attend it will be available on catch up on Sunday 30th May starting at the usual time of 2 P.M.
