The Model Engineers' Society Northern Ireland was founded in 1944 by a group of dedicated model enthusiasts who saw the need for an organisation to encourage the skills of miniature engineering and its associated crafts in the home workshop.

The Society is based in the former Victorian walled kitchen garden of "Dalchoolin House", in the grounds of the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum at Cultra on the southern shores of Belfast Lough.

Members are active at the site on Wednesdays and Saturdays all year round (weather permitting).

Our tracksite includes a 31/2" and 5" gauge raised level circuit (1700' length), a 71/4" gauge ground level circuit (1200' length), a small boating pond, areas for traction engine/road vehicle running and a nearby field is often used for model aircraft flying.

Monthly society meetings are held in the "classroom" at the rear of the Transport Gallery on the 1st Thursday of each month, from September to June.
