About DEMU

Diesel and Electric Modellers United (demu) was formed in 1994 as an independent society catering for all modellers of the railways of mainland Britain in the Diesel and Electric era regardless of scale/gauge affiliations or modelling ability.

We aim to promote all aspects of this period by exchanging information and ideas in our quarterly magazine 'UPDate' and our members-only web forum, which feature modelling and prototype articles on a wide range of subjects.

We try to cover subjects not normally seen in the mainstream modelling press and aim to be as in depth, informative and as accurate as possible. All back issues of 'UPDate' are still available in compendium form.

We have a network of Area Groups established across Britain that hold regular meetings and we hold an annual Showcase where the very best of diesel and electric era railway modelling may be seen.

A scale drawing service is available to members, along with digest sheets on D&E related subjects. We are also working with various kit and RTR manufacturers to provide prototype information and market research on proposed new products.
