We are a busy friendly group of model engineers who meet each Thursday (first and third Thursday of each month in winter) at our Society track in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire.
Members interests include live steam locomotives from 0 gauge to 5 inch gauge, steam road vehicles, and model boats.
The Society owns three 5 inch gauge locomotives. The mainstay is the 0-6-0 tank, to the "Twin Sisters" design
by Austen Walton. Useful and popular are the petrol driven 0-6-0 and the Bo-Bo electric locomotives. All three were built by Society members.
We have a 350 feet (107m) long fixed elevated track in 3.5 and 5 inch gauges, which we use regularly on meeting nights during the longer summer evenings, and for social steam weekend afternoons.
The Society also has a 120 feet (37m) long portable track in 3.5 and 5 inch gauges, which we take to local fetes and school events.
New members will always receive a warm welcome. If you would like to come along and see who we are and what we do, please email us at email@example.com for more details.
