Despite being asked to move from their Falconwood site,  Welling and District Model Engineering Society  have just announced their programme of public running dates for 2019, as their web site says:

We look forward to welcoming you back in 2019 for another summer of nostalgia, riding behind our steam and electric locomotives. The dates and timings have now been confirmed.
The railway and clubhouse will be open from 2:00-5:00pm. Train rides will be available for children and adults(!), with the last ticket issued at 4:30pm. Refreshments are available in the clubhouse.
Due to a reduction in car parking space, there is no parking on site on Public Running Days except for those with Blue Badges.
Sunday April 7th 21st
Sunday May 5th 19th
Sunday June 2nd 16th 30th
Sunday July 14th 28th
Sunday August 11th 25th
Sunday September 8th 22nd
Sunday October 6th (last running)

The club say that they don’t have a firm date when they will need to be off the site. Although they expect to be able to hold the 2019 public running days and parties, they can’t at the moment plan to hold their Santa Special in December.

The club’s web site has no new news about where they might be moving to, but Bexley Council say that Hall Place is a possible home for the railway.

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.
