The City of Sunderland Model Engineering Society

Welcome to the City of Sunderland Model Engineering Society's website. We are located in Roker Park, Sunderland, a very attractive venue right on the sea front. Most weekends, see us giving rides to the public on our multi-gauge railway but railways aren't the only thing that interest our members. We have access to an excellent model boating lake, so our marine modellers are well catered for. Many of our members are interested in other kinds of engineering - traction engines, steam cars (the paths make excellent roadways), steam engines and turbines, ic engines - just to name a few. Whatever your interest, we'll be glad to welcome you.

The club meets Thursday mornings for track and other essential maintenance, Saturday and Sunday afternoons for - weather permitting - running passenger locos on the large track. We don't charge for rides, but your generous donations are always welcome. Why not come along for a ride and bring the kids. ( Granny and grandad are welcome too. ) The third Saturday of each month is a formal members' meeting in the clubhouse (the pavillion next to the small track) starting at 1.30pm. Why not come along and join us ?

If you've arrived at our website via the "Peter's Railway" books or website, then please get in touch ( details on the Contact / Find Us page ). We'll be happy to take your school party for a ride and tell them all about our railway.
