About the Club

Warrington and District Model
Engineering Society

WDMES is based around Warrington and caters for Model Engineers of all tastes.

Our main activities are based on our track, which is at Daresbury, just outside Warrington, and the Annual Cheshire Steam Fair during the summer.

We Are A Friendly Society

Although this might give you the impression that we are only interested in trains and locomotives, this is not the case, but the tracks are our only visible possession. We are also into stationary engines, traction engines, clocks, microscopes, 3-wheeled cars amongst other things.

Come along and join us if you are interested in any form of model engineering, we’re a pretty friendly bunch, and mostly harmless…. If you are interested in becoming a member, please look at the Membership tab above.
