The Society was originally founded in 1929 as a Meccano club by our founder Mr. Wicks for his two sons who were interested in the construction sets at that time. We are interested in all railway modelling.
We take the past and wrap it in a new imagination, creating a history that should have been. We are a collective of designers, engineers and artists who recreate totally unique versions of some of culture's favourites.
