East Kent 0 Gauge Group has meetings in Badlesmere just outside Faversham and sometimes in the town centre. Founded in 1986, we model a variety of railways in 7mm scale.
We have three sessions a month at Badlesmere, just outside of Faversham. These are from mid-morning until mid-afternoon on Wednesdays or Saturdays. Members usually bring picnic lunches and drinks, or meet at local inns.
Members have a wide range of interests from Victorian trains, through US and Continental, to modern British railways, pooling their expertise to forward our projects and to help at exhibitions.
We have our test circuit and a layout running during meetings, alongside our modelling tables, where we work on group and home projects. We exhibit two layouts: "Edington Junction" and "Sarre". (You may have seen us in the January 2018 issue of BRM, as well as numerous editions of The O Gauge Guild Gazette.)
Whether a railway historian, maker of line-side buildings, collector, novice modeller or seasoned scratch-builder you would be welcome in our group. Our monthly newsletter, in both paper and email forms, keeps all members informed.
Look at our Gallery on this website for photos of our layouts, models and meetings. There are also photos of model shows and our members' travels. The News pages contain items and pictures covering many years, where you may find mention of friends and family. Do browse.
EK0GG named sales items available include: Mugs with our logo and your name or suitable phrase; polo shirts and sweatshirts in french blue with both logo and group name.
