If you’re interested in model making, small machine tools, tool making and experimental engineering connected to the models, visit the South Australian Society of Model and Experimental Engineers Park grounds.
The big attraction, especially for children, is the railway system. There are two systems: one for the smaller scale locomotives and rolling stock, the other for larger scale locomotives and rolling stock.
A boat pond is the centre of activity for the members who model boats. You can see steam boats, launches, warships and sailing boats on public field days.
Another centre of interest is the boiler house. A boiler provides steam for number of working models of beam engines, mill engines and marine engines as well as several restored industrial engines. Members of the society are only too glad to explain the workings of the models to the public.
