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, and occasional meetings in the Faversham's centre. These are from mid/late morning until mid/late afternoon meetings on Wednesdays or Saturdays. Members usually bring picnic lunches or meet at local inns beforehand. * Our pre-meeting lunches in Faversham will be at The Sun in West Street, gathering at 12.30.
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".
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.
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.
