Based in Kinver- its third home -the society draws members from all parts of the black country. West Midlands Engineers was started in the 1930’s by Mr Dick Thomas. A Wolverhampton branch of the society was formed later and in 1943 the original Dawley Brook contingent died and the offshoot became the Wolverhampton Society for Model Engineers. Its home was Omsdale, Wombourne, where a group of men, including Mr Jack Cox built 800ft of track One of Jack’s locos was the first to travel on the new track. As the society grew, so did Wombourne, and in 1960 members started looking for a new home as their Omsdale site was to be sold for building and that’s where Joe Gill came in. Joe, and accountant, suggested Kinver British Legion that the scrub land opposite the headquarters would be ideal for the society. Since the Wombourne track has been re-laid at Kinver, it has been extended to half mile, much of the work having been done by members under the guidance of Graham Fidler. Mr Fiddler was able to provide the knowledge for the working party which engaged in constructing a “halt” and will later tackle a tunnel.
