About Us

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 two 5 inch gauge locomotives. The mainstay is the 0-6-0 tank, to the "Twin Sisters" design 
by Austen Walton, and a popular and useful petrol driven 0-6-0.  Both 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.

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 hatfield.dsme@gmail.com for more details.
