PVMPS inc.

Hello and welcome to the website.  The Pioneer Valley Machinery Preservationists Society Inc (PVMPS) is a machinery preservationists society based in the Mackay region of  Central Queensland, AUSTRALIA.  Our members come from a wide ranging demograph from business professionals to retirees.  You’re never too young or too old to be a member, you just need an interest in historical machinery and our living past. 

We meet on the first Thursday of the month at 7.30pm in the George Street Neighbourhood Centre, 4 George St Mackay (in the shed at the rear).  You are most welcome to join us, you don’t need to contact us first to attend (just turn up) and you don’t need to own an engine to be a member!
 The Pioneer Valley Machinery Preservationists Society promotes:- 
    *    Preservation of our mechanical historical past
    *    Restoration of Equipment for future generations
    *    Public viewing of Equipment wherever possible
    *    Safe and Responsible Work Habits


Want to do something ambitious with your pastime?  Why not restore a hunk of junk?  The below restoration was carried out by one of our members (click the pictures to see them enlarged).  Becoming a member we’ll help you to locate your first project whether that be a farm implement to an engine and get you on your way.
