I (and some of the MMRC club members) have been trying to organise a trip out there to have a look at the club/meet the members.

I'll get in touch after the General Meeting on the 19th Feb we have coming up and see if we can work something out.

The Essendon Model Railway Group does exist and we have members but unfortunately the clubrooms are not accessible and the building has been locked up and cannot be accessed due to council.

The Church refused to work with us to maintain the building and they refused to maintain the building themselves.  So at the current time we have a club and no access to our layout and rooms.

Work is currently underway to identify new clubrooms and we do have 2 leads on this.

I believe around 2 years.  The Secretary of the club is @Michelle12

Meanwhile we had been attending the USMRCA club at Albion but due to a dispute with the landlords they have been asked to leave and are currently in the process of dismantling what was an amazing mountain area and large layout.

EMRG will come back this year and as a club he had a lot of Railpage users come down and run trains.  It still is an excellent club and very accommodating in terms of rolling stock USA/Australian/Europe and running rules.  Overall it was an excellent setup.  We would regularly get 20+ members running on a wednesday evening and we often ran saturday afternoons also.
