news - Public running dates for 2018 have been announced.
For 2018 childrens parties, more details are available here.
We've got a short report on our recent running day run, along with our gallery page. There is also an older report from our Open day. Although there has been little to report recently, we will continue to update you on our site relocation.
The Welling and District Model Engineering
Society was founded in 1945. We are an active and enthusiastic society and we
have a private site close to Falconwood station with a 1268 feet 3.5"
and 5" gauge raised steel track. The track is electronically signalled,
and features a full anti-tip rail, level crossing, footbridges, mini-viaduct,
signal box and tunnel. The 9 bay steaming bay is equipped with power
and has a water tower and coal bunker.
We also have a gauge 1
layout, which consists of 2 circuits of 117 feet each.
Our primary interest is
model locomotives, but our members cover the full range of model engineering
activities including traction engines, stationary engines, model boats.
Club meetings are held weekly on a
Thursday night in the club house, with working parties on Wednesday afternoons
and Sunday mornings. Public running is held
fortnightly on Sunday afternoons in the warmer months, and we also hold two
open days per year.
Our site is located on the Electricity
Station site close to Falconwood station, just off the Rochester Way. The Electricity station
is easily found on this map.
