TIMS's usual home is at Enginuity, a museum in Coalbrookdale near the Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire. Here we hold three TIMS Meccano shows every year, with another being held at Blists Hill Victorian Town Museum.

  • February Meccano Show, held at the beginning of February. Includes a society meeting for full TIMS members
  • Meccanuity. Our & perhaps the UK's largest Meccano show, held over the three days of the May Day Bank Holiday
  • Our third show takes place at Blists Hill Victorian Town, Madeley, Shropshire, over a weekend in August
  • November Meccano Show. Includes the society's AGM for full TIMS members

TIMS November Meccano Show 2017

Saturday 4 November 2017, 10:00am – 4:30pm

Join us just a few hundred yards from the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution for the last Telford & Ironbridge Meccano Society show of 2017. Open to the public, come to the Gadgetdom Room at Enginuity to revel in the delights of Meccano!

Live steam is allowed too! If you wish to bring your live steam powered Meccano models please do so. Live steaming is allowed in the steam shed and in the car park. Please note that it can be cold in the steam shed, until we get all steamed up that is! (Tables are very limited in the steam shed, so if you need a table for steaming, please book in advance, otherwise you may risk not getting a table). Please read the Live Steam Code of Practice.

For full TIMS members, the AGM/TIMS Meeting will be held at 2pm in the glass classroom across the car park from the Enginuity entrance.

Note: Normal museum admission charges apply.
