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.
If you are interested in joining us please call into Field Place on one of our Thursday meeting evenings or on a Wednesday or on some Saturday mornings. Alternatively you may use our Contact Us page to send an email or download and complete an application form. There is more information on the About us page.
Next Public Running Sunday the 26th June
The weather reports tell us that Sunday will be fine although one hints at cloud cover and there's certainly a promise of rain between now and then. Howeve, there is always the clubhose should a shower actually appear and that is far better than being caught outside somewhere else or playing safe and staying indoors.
So we will be ready for you to arrive at 2pm onwards. Looking forward to the afternoon.
To all our visitors, all payments to us are cash only. We have neither the fascilities to accept cards nor can we afford the costs associated with such transactions. Cash helps us to keep our prices away from the cost of living increases that are rampant at the moment.
Summer 22 Edition of our Newsletter
Doesn't time fly. Here we are again and it's already time for the Summer edition of the Newsletter.
Printed carefully on plain paper and with no more than the usual number of errors ( well maybe a couple more ) it's there to be downloaded via the link below and read eagerly for anyone who has lost or mislaid their original edition or just wants their own copy without having to join our club's membership.
If you do join up then you get 4 copies a year, free gratis, and a cup of tea on a Wednesday morning complete with chocolate biscuit and cake in fair exchange for grass mowing, painting or general maintenance and repairs!
Our New Arrival
The latest addition to our stable of locomotives has arrived. She (it, that or thingy to keep any woke warriors happy) is a British Rail Britannia baring the name Oliver Cromwell. Those of us who learned about the English Civil War recall that he really shook up the country at the time and his effects are still felt to this day although if you are a royalist not so fondly. Further datails will follow once she is ready to work for us.
Here she has had and passed a Hydraulic Boiler Safety Test hence the missing fire box door and steam dome. Next will be the Steam Test followed by a good clean and polish

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.
