The Ramsgate and District Model Engineering Club

20th August 2018 - On Saturday 11th August we were invited to the Canterbury and District Model Engineering Society's open day, an event held each year - Saturday for visiting clubs and Sunday for the general public. As always it was a great day and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - thanks for the invite!

14th July 2018 - Whilst running trains last Saturday at 'Battles for Victory', a guy came along carrying what I'd call a big drone. He asked for permission to launch from inside our track, as it is about the only safe place when there is an event on in the park. The drone is incredible and Alex, the owner operator was happy to discuss and demonstrate its capabilities - he kindly captured an image of our track and here it is.

The company Alex has created is called 'A Drones Perspective Ltd.' - more details can be found online at Facebook, Instagram and youtube.

3rd September 2017

Work has started on the flintwork in the walls of our shed in Ellington Park.... 

9th July 2017 - Today was the second day of the 2017 Battles for Victory event in Ellington Park.  The club was there both days - the weather was great, the show was fantastic and very well supported and we had great fun giving lots of train rides.

Many thanks to those people who gave up their weekend to help us and make the event so good!

Finally our thanks to Clive for organising the event.  We look forward to the weekend of the 14th and 15th of July 2018 when the Battles for Victory event will be on once more!

4th June 2017 - Today, whilst getting set up ready to run trains in the park, I noticed some people, dressed in various military uniforms.  It turns out that they were there for a publicity photo shoot for Battles for Victory which is being held in the park on July 8th and 9th.  The star of the photo shoot was John Miller, the nephew of the late, great, Glen Miller. 

John, with his band, will be performing at the Battles for Victory on Sunday evening.  For more information, see Battles for Victory on Facebook.




The Club's 2017 Spring Meeting will be held at Crampton Tower on the 31st March at 7:30pm
