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. The location of the site is shown in the Google Earth snippet below. It’s hidden behind the Electricity Station on Rochester Way, sandwiched between Falconwood Field and the railway line. Entrance is from Rochester Way.

It’s great that WDMES have been able to keep going on their local site.

 

WDMES is located South of Falconwood Field and North of the railway line behind the electricity sub-station. Entrance is from Rochester Way
