Hello and Welcome to the Weymouth & District Model Engineering Society Website

Whether you are a highly accomplished model engineer or a complete novice, whether young or old, there will always be a warm welcome to new members to our club. Our philosophy is one of enjoying a hobby in the company of good friends and having an opportunity to learn new skills. You do not have to own your own locomotive to join us, as the club has two, which members can use once suitably qualified.

We meet on every Tuesday evenings (19:00 onwards) and Saturday’s (10:00 onwards) in our club room which is part of the Budmouth Technology College. Steam up days, usually on the First and Third Saturday’s of the month and in the Summer months on an adhoc basis on Tuesday evenings.  The 16 mm, 5″ and 7 1/4″ engines and rolling stock are usually given a run out along with the various traction engines that belong to the club members raising steam.

It was nice to read this earlier this morning:

Steam locomotive 60007 Sir Nigel Gresley emerges from York railway museum.

With its move to Crewe upcoming, LNER A4 No. 60007 Sir Nigel Gresley has emerged from the National Railway Museum in York.

The A4 has appeared outside the workshop at York for the first time since its boiler was lifted into place back in November 2019.

Sir Nigel Gresley is currently in a temporary semi-matt black finish which will protect the locomotive as it moves to Crewe for final overhaul work.

Once this final work is complete, the locomotive will be outshopped in BR Express Blue, as this was voted in favour of by the SNGLT membership.

A provisionally agreed programme means that we should see Sir Nigel Gresley returned to steam in Spring 2022 – subject to work being completed.
