Founded in 2001, the Society is a relative newcomer in the well-established field of Model Engineering societies. It is based at the Bath & West Showground near Shepton Mallet, Somerset in the south-west of the UK, and draws members from as far afield as Bristol and Yeovil. Members come from many different walks of life and are of varying levels of skill and experience – and all are still learning! Their interests include:

  • road steam engines
  • 3½”, 5″ and 7¼” locos and stock
  • clocks and automata
  • aero engines & aeronautics
  • railway signalling
  • internal combustion engines
  • tools and workshop accessories
  • hot air and stationary engines
  • industrial archaeology
  • preserved steam railways
