Ipswich Model Engineering Society is always looking to welcome new members. Anybody interested in joining is invited to pay us a visit to learn more about the society. We meet every Tuesday, so if you come along during the afternoon there are likely to be members around who you can speak to. Alternatively drop us an email or visit us during one of our open days and find out more.

We have members drawn from all walks of life and a variety of occupations. Although the main interest is steam locomotives, all forms of model engineering are encouraged, including traction engines, stationary engines, clocks and general workshop matters. We endeavour to encourage future engineers and welcome younger members, although there is a minimum age of 14 years for juniors who will also need supervision by a parent or guardian.

The club holds within its members a vast array of knowledge enabling experienced and inexperienced alike to share skills and information. Our Tuesday evening club night offers a chance to speak with other members in an informal atmosphere. The club also arranges informal ‘workshops’ where small groups can receive training in specialised subjects.
