WDSME Wimborne Society of Model Engineers

The society has managed to keep around 65 members in the club, 15 of which are under 18 giving the club a bright future. Members meet once a week for maintenance or a cuppa, on Public Running Days and on the last Thursday of each month January till October for an evening event which can cover Films, BBQ, Skittle and Talks. Our AGM is held on a Saturday in November.

Membership is open to anyone (subject to a minimum age) who has an interest in any aspect of our hobby engineering/railways. Prospective members are welcome to visit us several times to get a feel for the atmosphere of WDSME before making a commitment to join.


Our site is located on private grounds giving us a secure location for our railway, this means when you join us you also have to join Cobham’s Sports & Social Club. Adult membership to Cobham is approximately £40 per year, (this can change). Other memberships are available from them depending on your requirements. Their club offers a good selection of food and drink at discounted rates and is set in a lovely location.


The membership to WDSME is Adult £10, Child £1 (under 16) (in order for children under 16 to join us they must have an adult join with them) only the adult needs to join Cobham’s Sports & Social Club. Our treasurer/secretary deals with the membership of WDSME, however to join Cobham’s you will need to go to the main clubhouse bar located on the grounds and join there. Please state when joining that you are becoming a member of the miniature railway as normal membership is usually full, but joining a sub club is ok. Download our form here and return it to us.
