Nelson Society of Modellers Inc was established in 1958 to cater for the interests of model enthusiasts in the Nelson area.  Included among the varied interests of its members are such hobbies as clockmaking, construction and operation of steam, electric, and diesel-petrol locomotices, traction engines, and small stationary engines.  Many members design and build their won workshop equipment.  Other members construct and sail ships of all types on the 0.8 hectare (2 acre) Modellers Pond adjacent to our railway track.  Meetings are held monthly at our Clubrooms where members can display their latest creative achievement or discuss with others any design or construction problems they may have, or where Guest Speakers come to share in their own hobbies and interests.  This exchange of ideas plus the experience and specialised knowledge which is willingly available from other members is the foundation of or Society's sttength.  Visits to members' workshopd, film and video evenings and an extensive library of modelling books and magazines extends the assistance available to those requiring it.  If you are interested in engineering, model making or trains you may like to consider joining our dedicated band of members.
