The Santa special is planned for Sunday 11th December 2016, subject to WDMES remaining on the site. Tickets will be sold on 25th September and 9th October, and will be limited to 4 tickets per person.

Before heading down to Falconwood it’s worth checking the Welling and District Model Engineering Society web site for any updates or late cancellations.

Details of how to get to the WDMES site, plus a sound recording and video of the miniature railway in action can be seen in previous posts about the model railway.

It’s great that the society are still hanging on to their home at the electricity station site near Falconwood railway station, despite uncertainty about the site’s future. Long may they continue.
