Update 15th February 2021
There's not a lot to report really. All we can do is wait until the Government decides we can all get together again and bring on another lockdown! The latest (Spring 21) edition of the newsletter reveals what we have been able to achieve down at Field Place.
Talking of the Newsletter I draw your attention to the back page bit in Red where Paul reminds us that our membership subscriptions for the forthcoming financial year are now due. However, the headline on the front page should cheer you all up and Larry's piece on the next page confirms the good but fair news that for this next financial year membership subs will be reduced to £10.
The cabling has been completed and the system tested. All we now need is to get back to normal. For those with long memories, meetings were the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month!
Nothing has changed in this respect. The latest (Jan 2020) boiler certification records are now on the private members page. Please check the status of your locomotives boiler well before running it at Field Place or any other track. Brian Hunt points out that there's no need to have steam or hydraulic tests carried out until you are actually going to run as the clock will start ticking again and the validity period will be wasted. It's not like an MOT on your car.
Club Members meet regularly in our own clubhouse situated at Field Place, Durrington, near Worthing.
Scheduled meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursday of every month at 7.30pm with either a guest speaker or "in-house" programmes.
