About the Society

Established in 1898 the Society has a long and distinguished history. We have a headquarters building in South London but our members are spread throughout the country and indeed throughout the world.

General meetings are held at Marshall House, usually on the first Saturday of the month. These cover a wide variety of topics of general interest to model engineers and those of like mind.

Visits are organised to places of interest. Recently we have been to see the workings of the Thames barrier, the Thames tunnel constructed by the Brunels and the motorsport and aviation museum at Brooklands. There are usually two visits a year.

A Journal containing news of the Society and interesting articles written by members is circulated to members six times a year.

We run a series of training courses to assist people who wish to take up the hobby to get started.

There is an extensive workshop and library available to members at Marshall House.
