About us

The Telford & Ironbridge Meccano Society (TIMS) was formed in 1991 by a group of local Meccano enthusiasts. It includes modellers, collectors, restorers, and inventors of all abilities. There's more information on the history of TIMS in our Library.

Our aims

  • To bring Meccano enthusiasts together whilst observing social distancing
  • To promote all kinds of Meccano model building
  • To encourage imagination and innovation in Meccano modelling
  • To highlight our members' Meccano modelling skills
