Disabled Toilets Update
Huge progress has been made in the corridor that links from the outside from where passengers leave the trains and pass into the clubhouse. A concerted effort by volunteers has installed the floor and wall units that will contain our library of model engineering magazines and documents. The blue colouring is a film for plastic protection and not a final colour scheme.
Also a work top has been cut to fit the length and width of the floor units and will undoubtedly prove essential for the storage of junk that seems to self generate whenever space offers itself.
This Sunday promised to be fine and indeed it was almost too fine. OK. you shouldn't say such things but it can be very hot indeed when working with steam locomotives. Not so much the fire and steam part of actual running but the lifting, moving and getting ready to run bit and then the blowing down of the steam afterwards and finding something to do with the hot fire and ashes and finally cleaning the engine ready for the nexr time. But when the weather was like yesterday and a lot of you cme along it's all worth while.
The next outing is set for Sunday 24th June.
The latest (Winter 17) edition of our newletter is available for download from the link on the Members Page.
We are in the North West corner of Field |Place, beyond the Tennis Courts. I suggest that you use the first Car Park entrance on the Right after enetering Field Place having gone past the indoor bowling club on your left. Go through to the second part of the car park and from there there's a fairly direct footpath by the bowling greens on your left up to the footbridge access to the club house as ground level access to the track and clubhouse is closed off on public running days. However, there is a buggy park by our entrance and disabled acccess is provided should it be needed.
