Welcome to the website of the Worthing and District Society of Model Engineers. We are a friendly group of about 100 members. Our interests include railway locomotives, traction engines, stationary engines, clocks and marine models. Meetings are held in our clubhouse at Field Place in Worthing on the second and fourth Thursday of each month with either a guest speaker or in-house programmes. Members also meet on Wednesdays and Saturdays for working parties, to run models or just to have a chat and a cup of tea.
At Field Place we have an elevated triple gauge (5, 3½, and 2½ inch) railway track of approximately 440 yards length. Rides are provided for the public on the second and fourth Sundays of each month from April to October.
Our Marine section organises regular regattas and generally welcome guests to their events.
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.
