Welcome to the website of the Otago Model Engineering Society (OMES). We do hope you will find something of interest if you are a member of the public, a member of another club or a prospective member.

The OMES was established in 1936 for people to get together to enjoy model engineering, namely building and running a variety of steam, diesel and electric locomotives (Engineering Group), model boats, traction engines, model trains and tethered cars.

Below is a map of our location (1 John Wilson Drive, St Kilda, Dunedin) and a Calendar of our running days and other OMES events.

Next Club Running Day

Keep an eye out for other possible running days, as well as holding your own Private Event at the Society's grounds.
