Tiverton & District Model Engineering Society
Our logo is a line drawing, made by Tim Clarke (one of our members), of the locomotive Lalla Rookh. The society owns a model of this locomotive, which is on display in Tiverton Museum.
Lalla Rookh was a broad-gauge locomotive of the GWR, designed by Daniel Gooch, and introduced into service in 1855. The class of ten locomotives were known as the "Waverley" class, and were generally named after Sir Walter Scott's Waverley novels, although Lalla Rookh is actually a poem by Thomas Moore.
