Welcome to the website of the Worthing and District Society of Model Engineers.

The latest (Autumn 17) edition of our newletter is available for download from the link on the Members Page.
A visit to the Photo Gallery will show what we get up to after the Public Running season. It's an eyeopener!
We were owed a day free of rain and the weather smiled down on us for the 8th (October), the last running day of our
Spring / Summer / Autumn Season.
Many thanks to all who came along during 2017, I hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did.
Make a note though, we will have a final run of the year on Sunday December 10th when Santa will pay a visit too!
As is usual for the Santa run it will start at 10:30 and stay running until 2:30
We are in the North West corner of Field |Place, beyond the Tennis Courts. I suggest that you use the first Car Park entrance on the Right after enetering Field Place having gone past the indoor bowling club on your left. Go through to the second part of the car park and from there there's a fairly direct footpath by the bowling greens on your left up to the footbridge access to the club house as ground level access to the track and clubhouse is closed off on public running days. However, there is a buggy park by our entrance and disabled acccess is provided should it be needed.
Here is a preview of the next 3 fridge magnets in our sought after series. Look out for them on Public running days.
These feature a Traction Engine, Steam Locomotive and Diesel Locomotive that are miniatures owned by club members.
Antiques are outdated, the Romans have long gone and the Dinosaurs are dead yet these magnets are made from 100,000,000 year old Welsh slate. Where else could you buy something so old and yet so new and for such a small outlay?
So onwards to December when we will present the Santa Run when Santa hinself will again grace us with his presence
The next time we will be steaming up is on Sunday the 10th December, first train departs at 10.30 am and then runs until 2:30 pm.
