Model Engineering Societies 

Model engineering involves constructing proportionally-scaled miniature working representations of real full-sized machines. These machines may take any form, but typically comprise railway locomotives, road vehicles, boats/ships or planes.

 

The RCD only lists those model engineering societies that are specifically concerned with model railway locomotives, albeit in all their forms, i.e., whether boiler (steam) driven or combustion driven.

 

Locomotives built by model railway engineers are built as true to life as possible, for example, with ‘real’ boilers (if steam driven), and like the ‘real prototype’ are capable of pulling trains. Most model engineering societies have constructed railways upon which their locomotives can carry passengers on trailing carriages, typically referred to as a ‘miniature railway’.

 

Note that the RCD is a directory of railway related clubs, and accordingly it contains a list of model engineering societies, not a list of miniature railways. For that reason, miniature railways not operated by a model engineering society are not included in the RCD. For a full list of miniature railways we recommend 'Minor Railways' by Peter Scott.

 

 Model Engineering Society Associations

 

Engineered locomotives are complex machines like the full-sized version, with associated risks and issues. To deal with legal requirements, such as boiler pressure design and testing for boilers, and public liability insurance, a number of Associations have been formed to which nearly all listed societies are a member. The two main Associations are:

 

The Federation of Model Engineering Societies

www.fmes.org.uk

 

The Northern Association of Model Engineers

www.name-1.org

 

Model engineering clubs are often a member of a Gauge Society, which includes the following:

 

The 7 1/4 Gauge Society

www.sevenandaquarter.org

 

The 10 1/4in Gauge Society

www.tenquarter.org

 

The Ground Level 5 inch Gauge Mainline Association

www.gl5.org

 

The National 2 ½ inch Gauge Association

www.n25ga.org
