Changes to Events Calendar from September
Regular Monday Breakfast meetings continue at Darrington Golf Club
Since we have lost our society site at Eggborough, due to redevelopment, we now meet weekly at Darrington Golf club for a natter just to keep the society functioning. If you are not a member, but would like to talk to other modellers just come along for an hour or so and make some new like-minded friends. You don’t have to have a fully functioning workshop, just be interested in modelling.
A society of enthusiasts who build engineering models with the emphasis on railway locomotives and running a railway.
Welcome to the Leeds Society of Model & Experimental Engineers
Welcome to existing Society members and non-members interested in model engineering.
Leeds Society of Model and Experimental Engineers was formed in Leeds in 1935 and has links to the first such society established in the city in 1899. Members have a wide range of interests relating to steam engines both railway, traction and stationary types, clocks, internal combustion engines and engineering processes in general. For many years the Society operated a miniature railway in the grounds of Temple Newsam House, relocating it to the grounds of Eggborough Power Station in 1978. At present the Eggborough site is being redeveloped and we are working with the developer to relocate the miniature railway elsewhere on the same site.
The Society hold regular meetings with speakers giving talks on engineering and steam topics and also operates a portable miniature steam railway at local community fairs and fetes.
